    Hi, i am also wondering whether ICL requires GRE for the computin course. I asked by mail about that and they said GRE is not required for the course. But, still they did not made any correction on the website. I Will ask again about that and write their reply here.

    Hi~~~~Thanks for the update, just wondering when you apply for the 2017 entry, did ICL asks for a Graduate Record Examination (GRE) score? I am looking to apply for 2018 entry and it seem to be a new requirement? Thanks, are you still waiting to hear from ICL or are you heading to alternatives since its nearly the start of term?
    Unfortunately, I received my rejection in mid sept (which is very late in my opinion). Went to another school for another course

    And yes, I submitted my GRE scores (applied for ML and AI). I think all computing specialist courses require them? From my point of view, it'll be good to have high GRE scores (just try your best even if you think your undergraduate scores are not as good). Good luck to you guys for next year's application!

    Hi guys, I got a reply from Imperial and they told me this isn't compulsory for MSc Computing Science (the converstional course). It is compoulsory for all other computing degrees though.

    I did not submit my GRE scores and I got an offer, so I wouldn't worry about it too much )

    But I do admit it was a bit annoying. It said on the website that it's compulsory, so I booked a seat on the exam. Then I e-mailed them to double check ( should have done it before booking the seat... ) and they told me it's not required. So I had to cancel my exam and I incurred 50% cost of the exam (which is roughly 75 pounds :/) So yeah, don't make my mistake

    Congrats on the offer! I will be applying for the same course and booked an exam seat for the GRE in mid-december and I have been studying for it quite a while now! Do you think it is more preferable to send off the application as early as possible without GRE scores or wait until the end of December and submit it with the GRE scores (hopefully good ones!).

    Also could you please specify how long the application process took? From the point you sent off the application until you received the offer?

    Finally, could you please just give a brief background about yourself? What and where did you study for your bachelor?

    Many thanks!

    I had the same dilemma, and I decided to cancel my GRE. But maybe it is preferrable to do it if you're coming from less mathsy background. I study Financial Economics with Econometrics.

    It literally took 1 week from the second reference submission.

    Good luck!

    I saw the exactly same thing as you saw but I reacted differently as I sent my e-mail to the office three times including the one sent out a day before my submission, which saved my money.

    It seems to me that I was probably one of those who applied to the course at earliest, now kinda torn though

    Thanks but I have put the offer on hold by another 4 weeks as I will apply to Oxford too. (Although, I am leaning strongly towards Imperial even if I had an offer from Oxford.)

    As for my academic background, I garnered First Class Honours from UCL and some of my electives during UG were Maths with A-level maths.

    I am not sure if CV matters, but I am currently taking a gap year back in where I originally come from and I have had an internship at some strategic consulting firms like A.T. Kearney.

    Good luck with your application.
