    If you had high predicted grades at A-level and a really good BMAT then maybe but it would be best to email the admissions team at Imperial and see what they say

    There are no GCSE requirements for Medicine at Imperial anymore. It will depend on other factors like your PS, A-Level predictions, interview performance and (most importantly after A-Level predictions), BMAT score.

    Hey Grace,

    I'm a first year medical student at Imperial and I absolutely think that you definitely have a shot at medicine, especially at all the unis you have listed. Just make sure to do really well in your UKCAT and your BMAT (well, at least a fair amount above average) and with a solid personal statement, you should definitely be able to secure an interview.

    By the way guys, me and a few friends at Imperial were thinking of maybe holding a day event for potential medical students and going through methods and revision tips for passing the UKCAT, BMAT and interviews, and how to formulate a strong personal statement, but we were wondering if a demand for this is even there. We were also thinking of going over the general process of applying, and what work experience/extra-cullicar activities would place a candidate in a strong position, and also over what first year of medical school at Imperial is actually like. Do you guys think an event like this would be useful, or is it perhaps to early/late with regards to the admission process?

    I think that 7A's and 4B's certainly don't prohibit your entry (well at least to Imperial, which weighs GCSE's relatively lightly compared to other unis), but as they are not ideal, strong A-level predictions and BMAT score are necessary to stay competitive. Also, a friend of mine with one less B than yourself was able to gain entry into Leeds medical school, but from what I remember, he smashed through his BMAT, and so I'm sure your in a strong enough position so far to apply.

    Good luck

    Two BMAT dates this year.....

    - Saturday 9th September 2017
    - Thursday 1st November 2017

    Probably better to take the earlier exam (unless also Oxford applicant).......and know BMAT score pre-application? Or will it be too close to UKCAT?
