    I have just applied for Imperial Global Summer School, and I am a bit worried of not being able to get in.. My first choice for strand is physical science, and the second is engineering. I filled in my GCSE results, which are all A* except for English Language. My A-Level predicted grades haven’t come out yet. However, I made a big mistake when writing the personal statement: I thought the maximum number of words is 500, so I wrote about like 400words. I just realised they wouldn’t look at any words beyond 200. I’m quite worried about it cuz I don’t think I explained a lot about my abilities that might suit this programme.Can anyone give me any advice or any idea about how difficult it is to get an offer for this summer school please? Thank you!!!

    Sorry about your case. I applied for the second round this year and I received my offer on the last day. I think imperial prefers sending emails to all applicants on one day rather than making individual responses. As for competition, I think the summer school offers a few hundred places each year, and I am certain there are still places available. Though Im not sure whether you can make a second application. Btw what stream did you apply for? I am in engineering stream of august session.
