    Who's hoping Imperial lower the cut-offs this year 😂

    a lot of universities have done that this year to increase the numbers on their waiting list to avoid having to go into clearing lol but maybe Imperial will be ruthless 😭 crying inside #givememyrejectionalready

    What are chances of getting an interview with these scores:
    S1- 4.5, S2-5.3, S3-3.5A
    My predicted grades are A*AA with the A* in bio. I feel i have a good personal statement and reference.
    You stand in good stead to get an interview. Hopefully you have a good personal statement and grades. Nevertheless, I feel the most important thing right now is just simply to get down and focus on passing those A-Levels, as those grades in August are like the nervous system to your whole application. Without them, you might as well withdraw your application now. So just focus on the upcoming exams, and if and when the interview comes, you can take it from there.

    Unless you're in the Widening Participating band, I'm afraid you need to meet the cut off to be considered.
    Do you have a link to this? I want to see the criteria.

    I called and had a long chat with them, what happens is, if youve met the cut off in two but not one section, they will review your ps and then decide on which band to put you in. This was for band one so i dont know if they do the same for their lowest band as well

    To everyone asking if their BMAT would meet Band 1/2/3/the cut-off at all - the answer is we don't know. It changes every year so I'm afraid you'll just have to wait and see if you get interviewed at all.

    I also wouldn't worry too much about what band you're in - most people who meet the cut-off will get an interview.

    When do you think they might start sending out rejection letters?

    Oh dear! That's a great Christmas gift! Although I guess I have come to terms with the fact that I won't get accepted since I didn't meet the cut-off. Thanks for the reply.

    Do you think I would be disadvantaged in any way because I did shockingly bad in section 1 (2.4 lol) because I'm just generally rubbish at critically thinking but I did well in sections 2 and 3 (5.1 and 3.5A)?
    I'm always intrigued as to how some people managed to do this. Anyways, you'll unfortunately be rejected pre-interview for not meeting the section one cutoff. Good luck with everything

    International students have a different banding system. I believe it's high 7s for band 1. Not sure about section three

    Sorry, no idea. You'll likely just miss it or just make it. See my post above:

    I will keep my fingers crossed for you, however.
