UCL IMB offerholders and applicants for 2017 entry thread

HI guys! I thought I would create this so everyone can post their applications(IB, A levels - grades) and in a few months whether they have received an offer!

I am an IB student, applying in a few weeks in october with 39 points predicted.

I am wondering if they would give me an offer due to my predicted being lower then what they ask for?!

hi i applied for UCL IMB at the start of December but quite worried since my GCSE grades were really bad ( 1 A 4 B's 5 C's and 2 D's) i still meet the minimum requirements of GCSE grades but worried since it might not be good enough.For my A levels I'm currently doing Media Studies Graphics and English Lit which I'm predicted an AAA in. Any hope for me ?

Hi

I think you will have a problem. on their website it says you should take at least two subjects from their preferred subject list. The only subject you have is English Lit, so you might have a issue.

by graphics i mean: Art and Design: Graphic Design which is on the list
Wait, do I need 3 A-levels and an AS-level? The main UCL website just says AAB, which my predicted grades can meet.

I'm a current IMB student (year 3), unfortunately no one that I know of received an offer with a lower predicted grade; however, there were people that were predicted AAA but got ABB in the end but still got in.

Both love it and hate it, it does offer amazing career opportunities within banking and IT industry. I can tell you more in private if you're interested.

One of the best options is to personally message Richard Pettinger (the course founder), you can find his contact e-mail on UCL's website. He's a very great person and answers to all e-mails, he'll tell you realistically what are you chances and options.

Do you know how the management science course at UCL is? I have heard its quite different and interesting from all other courses.

Conditional offer from UCL IMB. I'm worried about the employability of this subject though since I've read that UCL is way overrated and that IMB is kind of a joke of a degree :/ Anyone debating over their offers as well?

Have you got an offer if so when did you get it.

For me the course is a perfect fit, so no not really

Hi,
What do you think of this course and the employability of the course? I heard that it's a joke of a subject and I'm worried.

Would you think that Warwick or St Andrews Management course is better that UCL IMB?
