I want to go to Imperial, but got a 5 in English Language. If I pass the Duolingo English Test requirements, can I get into Imperial? Given my predicted match the typical offer.
Duolingo English Test 115 Overall with no less than 105 in any band score.
Test scores are only considered valid if taken within 2 years of the intended course start date.
Imperial will not waive this requirement as its essential you can communicate effectively in both spoken and written senarios. If you are a UK student however and that 5 is in GCSE I would advise you to retake, contact the admissions team for the course you are interested in if you want a definitive answer as to whether they would accept Duolingo rather than GCSE in this case.
I meet all other requirements, it’s just the English grade that’s letting me down- hopefully we’ll receive good news soon
