Even if the interview went terribly yesterday, Cheryl got the job.
You have not talked to Cheryl since her interview. You imagine that the interview went terribly, but you think she probably got the job anyway.(original explanation)
I was studying "even if", I came across this sentence.Even though I am able to understand what "even if" implies and connotes, I still have a problem with its usage that for me the sentence should have written
Even if the interview went terribly yesterday, Cheryl would get the job. ( my sentence)
Because if we use "got", it reduces the meaning of imaginary which the sentence have to have.
