Imperial Admissions Post Kira Interview

I applied for a Master's in Investment and Wealth Management on 06/05 and got an invite for the Kira interview on 10/05, which I completed on 16/05. (This was due to the exam season at my undergraduate university.) I have two questions: 1. Is there an initial screening for the Kira interview invite? 2. How long should I expect to wait for an offer/rejection/waitlisting?

I have also seen that admissions tend to be more favourable for UK students. Imperial posted statistics about this same course on a forum called "What do they Know?" Is this, in general, true? I know these statistics are outdated, and application figures have since increased with the number of places around the same.

For UK Applicants:
In the 2016-17 academic year, 53 applications from UK students were received, 34 of whom received offers, and 28 accepted these offers.

In 2017-18, UK applications slightly decreased to 49, with 15 offers made and 12 acceptances.

The 2018-19 cycle saw an increase in UK applications to 56, resulting in 25 offers, of which 12 were accepted.

For EU Applicants:
During 2016-17, 155 applications from EU students were received, 46 of which resulted in offers, and 25 were accepted.

In the following year, 2017-18, there were 152 EU applications, 39 offers, and 26 acceptances.

EU applications rose to 185 in 2018-19, leading to 48 offers and 35 confirmations.

For International Applicants:
The 2016-17 academic year saw many applications from international students, totalling 976. Of these, 107 received offers, and 74 confirmed their places.

In 2017-18, international applications numbered 869, with 117 offers and 79 acceptances.

The 2018-19 year recorded the highest number of international applications at 1158, with 107 offers and 81 acceptances.

Thanks for any help
