    thanks for settling my conscience, hope i remember it as worse than it was, what do you think it means if i felt like my interviewers were slightly harsh and pushing me to finish and cutting me off before i could wrap my answer up, making it seem disjointed

    also, after interviews is interview performance the only thing used to differentiate ( nothing else considered) and is the offer/rejection decision made right after you leave the room?
    When I had my interview a couple of years ago, the interviewers were very harsh with me and cut me off and laughed at some of my answers. :ashamed2: I wouldn't worry about that too much, it's just likely that they were interested in what you had to say.

    The decision is usually made after you leave the room I believe, and I feel it's based only on interview performance. That's nothing official though, it's just me saying it so it could be wrong.

    Do they send out invites to interview on a rolling basis in terms of priority? So if you got invited really early on in the cycle you can expect that your application was highly prioritised?

    How much was your BMAT ? And are you a current applicant ? As I see ppl getting offers with very low BMAT .
    Hey thanks for getting back to me. My stats are : gcse 12A*
    As 4A's
    Predicted A*A*A*A
    Bmat : 4.9 4.7 2.5 A

    Would I stand a chance at an interview ? Or does making the cutoff just mean your not instantly rejected ? I am English year 13

    No - they look at other things too. I know people who had 7s in their BMAT but were rejected pre-interview.
    Wow that's Crazy. The guy at the open day said that as long as u make the cutoff then they look at your ucas and make a decision. However it does seem that they prioritise people with higher bmat scores

    To be honest i don't know myself my stats is pretty much the same but an international stydent . I don't have high hopes but have seen in previous posts ppl getting interview offers with similar BMAT score . But we are still above the last yr cut off . Fingers crossed !!!

    Does the medical student in the room have any say in the decision or do they leave before the others make the decision?

    Is there any way we can find what was the cut off for international students last year. I see many saying that as international need slightly high BMAT compared to home students.But there is no mention about that slightly high is how much? As the number of spots for the international is less, it would be great if there is a mention of the cut off for internationals separately. Has anyone called the university to enquire about this or has anyone received any information about this from FOI? Please share which would be of great help.

    You do. I had the same bmat as you but worse predictions, AS and gcses (but they don't look at those)

    They claim that the cut-off is the same for all applicants (grad entry, international, etc.) but I'm not sure whether or not that's really the case.

    Has anyone had to reschedule their interview and can help me with the process? I think i chose a date too far away and so i now realise that i don't want to be thinking about the interview all through my half term, when Im meant to be revising and resting.

    That's why I chose to do my interview kinda early. I have it next Wednesday. I am not sure if you could possibly reschedule your interview but I think you need to contact them. If I was you I wouldn't change it as I've heard that Imperial's interview is quite relaxed and doesn't need much worrying 😂 (I hope 😂)

    DON'T RESCHEDULE! I had 1st Feb and asked to reschedule. When they sent the booking email again and I went to rebook all of Jan and feb were gone and I lost my original date! Only March was left.

    How long after the interview do they let you know whether you're in or not?
