Improving chances of getting into Imperial.

    • Thread Starter

    Hi all,
    I am currently in year 11 and I'm hoping to study Medicine at Imperial College London.
    Aside from attaining good GCSE grades, what else can I do from now to maximise my chances of getting in, and to stand out at as a candidate?

    Any help would be appreciated (:

    I would say that you shouldn't stress so much at GCSEs as you've got plenty of time. For medicine, it might be nice to go on some medicine-related work shadowing / work experience. Some extra-curricular stuff can't hurt either, stuff like doing a sport, maybe, or perhaps join or run a club at your school.
Which party will you be voting for in the General Election 2017?
