Remember, if you are planning to work in clinical medicine in the UK post-grad it doesn't matter where you graduated from.

3. I think so. It was mentioned during a virtual open day but nothing's been put on the imperial website
4. Excellent for research and state-of-the-art laboratories, I like the fact there's a study abroad course option and I'd like to live in London
5. Warwick, UCL, Bath and I'm not sure about the last one maybe Durham, Manchester or Bristol

1 - Medicine
2 - Biology, Chemistry and Physics (+ an IPQ)
3. Yes, the BMAT
4. Lots of opportunities, early patient contact, high ranking which is good
5. I'm also applying to Cambridge, I'm an international student and I'm applying in Canada, Malaysia etc, so I've chosen some high reach universities in the UK to try for. I know I've got the work experience, the extra reading, done courses, publications in journals etc, essay competitions, just have to get the predicted which Im sure I will, and the BMAT scores.

EEE department
I got 4 A* on my ucss predicted. If my personal statement is only mediocre, is it still likely I won’t receive a conditional offer?

And does imperial work like better the personal statement, the lower the conditional offer they could give. That’s how I assume it worked.

I’m just worried about my personal statement rn I read some examples for imperial and people have done all this crazy stuff I’ve only done basic stuff…

Crazier stuff does not mean better and simple does not mean boring. The only thing your personal statement needs to show is passion for your subject. If the admissions team/your department can tell that you have passion for studying your subject and that you are excited to learn then you are probably an ideal/perfect student to them. Personal statements don't directly contribute to your offer, it will be everything. Your grades, your personal statement and your interview will make this up. Chances are that you'll probably get the typical offer.
Just as a little story that might make you feel better, I know someone who had an extremely simple personal statement where they just spoke about how much they enjoy the subject and how they spend their free time around the subject and that particular personal statement was mentioned at his Oxford interview as being particularly good and interesting to read. So if a simple personal statement is good enough for an Oxford professor its good enough for everyone (unfortunately they choked on their MAT).

No,you just get the typical offer regardless. The minimum requirement is A*AA, and that's also the offer that most people get for EEE - all this stuff is on the website.

Technically they can but chances are they won't. I personally don't know anyone who got a 4 A-level offer.
