biomedical engineering interview at imperial

Hi,

I've got an interview for biomedical engineering at imperial. I've never done an interview and I was wondering what the best way is to prepare for it? and what are they looking for in the group task?
Hi, I recently did a Bioengineering interview at Imperial so here's what to expect. For the personal interview stage, be prepared for the general interview questions (Why Imperial, Why Biomedical Engineering), brush up on your knowledge of your personal statement and refine your skills/knowledge in your subjects (Maths/Physics) as you will be asked a technical question on them. For the group activity stage, the interviewers aren't expecting you to be prepared for it and just want to see how you tackle a given problem with other interviewees. Additionally, try and be relaxed before the interview as they would be quite welcoming to you and generally want you to have a good time during the session. Wish you good luck.

Hi, may I ask what time did the in-person interview actually start during the applicant day and did you get the interview at the department of engineering? This is my first time in Imperial so thanks a lot for your help

Thanks for the advice. I've got a physics mock exam the day after my interview, so I've been working on my subjects anyway. Best of luck, I hope you got in!

The interview was face-to-face - inside imperial’s campus?
I have also applied for biomedical engineering and haven’t heard from Imperial yet.

Sorry I should've been more clear it was online, I was referring to the personal interview stage (I have edited it now). As February is the last month they hold interviews I'm sure you will get an interview invite soon!

Sorry for being unclear on this but the interview was online, I do wish it was in-person however!
