My name is Chloe and I'm new to TSR. I have a few questions about Geology, Universities, and the interview process and was wondering if anyone would be able to provide some help. Recently I have been given a few offers from my Uni choices (Bristol AAB, Plymouth 300 points, etc), however my main interest is in Southampton. My interview is on Wednesday 21st March, and I have been given instructions to prepare a research topic. In my 6th form there was no option to take Geology, so I have little previous knowledge in it, other than what I have looked into. Also I have never been in a "interview-like" situation. From looking around different websites etc, I see that Southampton's interview might be slightly different than other Universities.
In short, I am curious if anyone is able to give their opinion, or tell me their experience of the interview, or things to prepare for, (specifically how your presentation went, did you use any prompts, visuial aids etc?). I appreciate any and all help and advice given. I am also the only one within my 6th form that has chosen to do Geology, so my outside help is slightly limited. xD
Thank-you for reading this, and sorry for any "bad" english or grammer mistakes! TSR is amazing for the help it has given me so far, and this thread is brilliant! It's great to see so many other people here who have an interest in a Geo-related field. Anyhow I have rambled on enough, good luck to everyone with exams, and getting into their chosen University.
Southampton is one of (if not) my favourite University I could go to, and I would love the chance of getting an offer!
Cheers for everything all!
P.S If anyone has any advice on reading material or matters I should look into, I would welcome it greatly. I am currently reading The Earth (An Intimate History) - Richard Fortey!
(Lukas, sorry for the added quote. I jumped at the sight of seeing someone with SH knowledge :P I was curious on how soon you found out you were given an offer, and by what means? I assume via the post?
Hope things are going well, Good luck with your exams and offers. Hope everyone on this thread are doing okay! Take care all!
