    Yeah had my interview on the 13th Dec but haven't heard back. Presumably the admissions team will be trying to sort through more interviews before letting us know about offers/rekections (at least that what I've convinced myself). When did you have you interview?
    On the same day. Well I guess they have also had Christmas off

    When you got an interview invite there should be a link that you can go to, to book your interview slot. I don't think there's a portal/account that you can sign in to though.

    i know this is a thread for 2017 applicants, but would like to ask a quick question! I'm a 2018 applicant with very poor GCSE results for medicine, 3A* 7A; will the 'no gcse grade requirements' criteria really benefit me if I have the predicted grades and have reached the BMAT cutoff? And is it true that the interview offer is entirely based on BMAT score? I've always heard imperial is one of the hardest most prestigious medical schools to get into, so never considered with my grades- is there any point in me looking further into it, or is the whole GCSE thing simply not true?

    All medical schools are tough to get into but as long as you have the motivation and have a good personal statement, A*AA for a level prediction and a good BMAT then u still have a chance.
    My advice is start preparing for the BMAT from now, maybe 2 hours a week or something. The higher ur BMAT the higher ur chance of getting an interview and hence an offer from Imperial. Best of luck

    They could do if you mention it or if you've talked about an interest in research on your PS. I doubt they'll ask it out of the blue, however.

    Why would they lie about GCSE requirements on their website?

    Your GCSEs aren't poor at all. They're pretty good and would have easily surpassed Imperial's old requirements, you'll just need to avoid places that like seeing lots of A*s (e.g. Oxford). There isn't such thing as a prestigious medical school - they're all approved by the GMC and will allow you to become a doctor. There aren't really any easier or harder medical schools to get into, although you can make it easier for yourself by applying wisely.

    In terms of interview, you will need to meet the BMAT cut off but that's not the be all and end all. After you've met the cut off, your PS will also need to be up to standard and your predicted grades will need to match or exceed the minimum requirements. Most people slip up at the BMAT but I disagree with person above saying to start revision now. It's an exam where it's possible to peak too soon imo, and you don't want to run out of resources and panic nearer the time.

    Good luck!

    haha no I'm not suspecting them of lying, just wanted to double check
    so for Imperial if you get predicted grades above the usual offer of A*AA you're at an advantage? Do they also like a very strong PS? The thought of only getting the results after your application is already in does scare me though, but i will look further into considering imperial. Thank you for the reply!

    Haha, fair enough.

    In the past, they've said that they consider applicants with predicted grades higher than the minimum 'strong' but I'm not sure if it's still true now. You need to have a decent PS that addresses what they want - I'm fairly sure it says on their website but it's subjective so is the hardest part to advise on, sadly.

    Thank you so much! I'm being 100% honest when I say that I was expecting a rejection post interview. I was actually more satisfied with my Cambridge interview than imperial which is unexpected. I just felt like I got into a pickle with the ethical scenario and didn't really come across as offer worthy.

    As @/usycool said a couple of weeks back it doesn't seem like they weighted my response too heavily as apparently quite a few people are uncertain about how they've done. If you have an interview coming up, best of luck!



    Thank you! Admittedly I don't know too much about it (I didn't even know if its existence until a couple of people received scholarships in mid December). As far as I know it's a scholarship you receive based on your overall application and interview and you don't apply for it separately. I'm supposed to receive further info about it in which case I'll PM you if you want but the others that received it should know more
    Great job I got the president's scholarship in my first year too after thinking my interview had gone to crap. You don't really do much with it; you get a few photos on the uni website and that's about it, but they give you loads of money which is useful! haha. Congrats again
