    I thought it would be a good idea to make a thread for the 2012 cycle so we can keep updated with the progress of applications!

    I'm currently considering applying to Imperial but I am concerned with my 650 in QR. Last year they did not interview anybody with below 640 in any subtest... will I be sailing to close to the wind?

    Hey ob[x] :)

    Hopefully I'll be applying to Imperial too. I say hopefully because I haven't taken the UKCAT yet :p

    Imperial heavily rely on the UKCAT and they list the applicants accordingly. Therefore, it might be likely that your overall UKCAT score is a tad low.

    Good luck nevertheless :)

    i did my ukcat today, i got 640, 610, 650, 650. As imperial ask for scores in the mid 600's do u think my ukcat would be adequate for 2012 entry?

    Unfortunately you're QR might hold you back. I know they're strict on BMAT cutoffs so I'm guessing they'd be the same with graduates and the UKCAT. Maybe try the BMAT and apply for A100 entry?

    Hi, I am 30, Does Imperial discriminate or consider your age regarding admission? Will older applicant be at a disadvantage?

    I've only enquired about the A100 (undergraduate entry) and they have no problem with me being 25 so I would seriously doubt they'd discriminate against your age for the A101 entry.

    no they won't. They are people well into their 30s and who are doing very well on the course.
