Hi everyone, my names Joshua Wayoe. I'm a third year Information Management for Business student at UCL and I'm here to help out with any questions you may have. I remember applying and feeling so lost and wondering whether I'd get in. So good luck to all of you on your choices.

I also wanted to say I have started a podcast on YouTube which explains how my friends and I got into UCL and what it is like: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCll..._as=subscriber

I'd appreciate it if you have a listen and hopefully it can help answer some of the questions you have Thanks everyone!!
Thanks for the info! Much appreciated.
Me and my friends have applied to UCL for IMB, eagerly waiting for UCL to reply. To be honest, i have kinda lost hope cuz it has been around 2 months.

No worries at all!! Honestly, don't lose hope!! I applied in November 2015 and didn't hear a thing until March 2016 and got a rejection. But with perseverance, I managed to get in. I discuss all of this on the podcast in depth. The admissions at UCL is just horrible I don't think it is structured well. But just maintain hope you've all got this

Honestly, I would say there are a lot of modules which haven't turned out the way I expected. I feel they could have had better lecturers and teaching methods especially for the programming modules. But on the flip side they do get you to engage with top companies with events and what not. I explain a lot of this in my podcast CultrTalk on youtube that might help. With all of this, I still reckon I would pick IMB at UCL

What was the reason behind your rejection if you don’t mind me asking? My personal statement was mainly based on management so I’m abit worried

In the past, people like you did get offers. They don't need you to have a comp sci background. So, I think it's fine. Good luck mate.

They claim that it was due to my application not being as strong as other applicants. But I don't believe that at all because two friends of mine who went to the same sixth form I did got worse grades than me and got accepted within a week. They only sent their applications off a week before I did. I think my application fell into a pile which wasn't looked at early and therefore as they informed me "the course is oversubscribed".

Thank you. Predicted grades are AAA. Applied beginning of January. Surprised I got an offer to be honest, had nothing about computing or programming in my personal statement.
