    Hey, I'm considering applying to Imperial med with A*AA (A* in maths) in my A2s. Would this be a massive drawback, minimum requirement is AAA but most offers is A*AA (A* in bio or chem.) Know anyone who got in with my grades?
    Many thanks

    I'm applying this year just like you but from what I understand, I believe the very first thing that Imperial look at is to see if you met their minimum requirement of AAA and then the second thing they look at is to see if you met the BMAT cut off.

    Now, if you get a strong BMAT score: say around 5.4 for Sections 1 and 2, and also around 3.5A for section 3... I reckon you should get an interview guranteed.

    Imperial, I believe, focus heavily on the BMAT.

    That's precisely what's gonna happen
    We get put into bands according to the BMAT score and the higher the band the more likely you are to get an interview .

    Here's a useful blogpost about it

    Hey,
    I wasn't sure whether I should apply to imperial or not so I didn't put it on my BMAT registration form. Later I decided to apply to imperial and put it on my UCAS choices.
    I know that BMAT sends the results directly to universities. So how do I get my results sent to imperial? (Once they're here)

    Ask your school to call BMAT up amd put Imperial down for you

    Hello guys,

    I found this essay incredibly awkward to write and the last part of it in particular was really difficult. Can some please give me some feedback and tell me how to improve it. Also how would you answer the last par of the question?

    I really appreciate the feedback.

    Thank you very much in advance.



    PS..... this is a 2011 paper. would the layout of the essay still be like similar to this on Wednesday



    People injured whilst participating in extreme sports should nit be treated by a publicly funded health service.

    Explain the reasoning behind this statement. Suggest an argument against this statement. To what extent, if any, does the statement justify a change in public attitudes to personal risk taking?



    An extreme sport is a sport which is perceived as having a high level of inherent danger. Examples of such are boxing and extreme waterboard sports. The reasoning behind the above statement is that why should the public pay for injuries which are self conflicted and most likely going to occur again. It would be a better use of resources, time and money to treat other people who have not brought their injuries to themselves.



    Although this may initially seem as to be a rather popular idea, it has many fundamental flaws which make it an unrealistic policy to implement. First of all, people who undertake extreme sports are members of society and contribute to the NHS. Their right to free healthcare is as important as any other persons right. If they should not be treated by the NHS, then surely they should have lower taxes. Secondly, many members of the public smoke and drink excessively. These habits can have catastrophic effects on a persons health as a whole. For example, smokers who may require a lung transplant as the state of their lungs has deteriorated significantly due to smoking. This can also be classified as a self inflicted injury. Should smokers and drinkers not be treated by the NHS as well? Furthermore, many people who undertake extreme sports, such as boxing, professionally are extremely fit. They take very good care of their health at all times. On the other hand, some members of the public are overweight and obese. This can increase the chances of developing Coronary Heart Disease and so would require treatment. However should they also be denied of treatment?



    This statement can change the public's opinion and attitude towards personal risk taking greatly. It can cause the public to significantly oppose the treatment of such athletes, which although may seem logical would be quite hypocritical. On the contrary, it can also cause he public to push for more regulations in connection with extreme sports to ensure that the injuries are less significant.
