Some people have interviews for JMC so one assumes that they are going through the CS applications soon. I did my test on the 12th of October but haven't heard anything from them either.

So am I. TMUA could have gone better for me so my Cambridge chances are less so I'm hoping more for Imperial interviews.

Still waiting! Let me know how you get on.
Just received the invitation for an interview with JMC. Did the test two weeks ago.

I got my interview invite a couple of days ago during my EPQ lesson at about 11 am. I sent my application in on 27/09/2023 and did the admissions test on 12/10/23.

Hi @Skimonkey,

I am Anonymous #1. I submitted my application on 27/09 (quite early I felt but others have submitted far earlier from what I hear). I got an email on 9/10 saying that there would be an admissions test for Imperial (which I wasn't even aware of) but thankfully it didn't require any work of any sort as they literally say "No prior preparation is required" and following the test, they were right.

I did my admissions test on 12/10 and I felt as though the questions were quite straighforward but timing was tight so it is hard to say what mark out of 100 I would get. Plus, we don't actually know how many marks each question is during the test.

I got my interview invite two days ago (as I already mentioned in this thread) and that means that following the admissions test, I got my interview invite 29 days after. I know people who applied before me and haven't heard anything back for CS so I wouldn't worry about it. When they are ready, they will reply. Also, from last year, I know several people that applied early but didn't actually get a verdict for whether they were successful or not in obtaining an interview until March of the year they were expecting to enter university.

The official UCAS deadline for ALL applicants is 31st of Jan and Imperial tend to pace themselves in terms of the number of people they give out offers to interview from now until March next year. I wouldn't worry too much.

Are you home or international student??
Most (if not all) take longer to process internationals. One of my friends is a home applicant and he sent his in like 10 mins before mine (same course) but he hasn't heard anything back.

wow!! I hope you get an offer from them.

I'm not getting an interview for sure bc my TMUA went badly. The paper was SO easy but I didn't leave enough time for myself to mark on the answers. I only got 9/20 questions shaded in. ☹️
