    Heh, same - I was shocked when I read that - my grades aren't great.

    Looking forward to the interview though
    Mines at 3oclock on the 8th. May see you there! My grades at AS were okay, 200/200 in Politics and 191/200 in History, but been rejected from Bristol so there must be something wrong with my statement.. which is worrying! Hopefully they don't grill me too much

    Lol I got a letter today. They're offering me Politics instead as an alternative offer. I'm fine about it I just emailed the woman in charge asking for feedback which would be helpful.

    My politics teacher is a complete babe so he did a session with me the other day running through all current policies and whats going on in the world. He's also giving me a mock interview next wednesday

    I'm also lucky enough to know a girl who's on the course. She talked to me all about her interview two years ago and what she experienced (although I doubt it'll be quite the same now) so I'm feeling okay about it at the moment

    I think the key thing is to know Westminster like the back of your hand!

    I got the alternative offer of straight Politics which I'm fairly happy about, as I got rejected by Newcastle last week too! I already intern in Westminster with a Labour MP in the holidays so I'm planning on just keeping in touch with them and going down when I can so hopefully I'll have a job after uni without doing the Parl Studies bit!

    Still find it really strange how Leeds Politics department is ranked so low, when it has such an amazing course to offer!

    Congrats to you too! Nooo I'm at 12pm it would have been nice to meet people from here! And idk much about it. I imagine it to be individual but interviewed by the same people. Otherwise they can't judge fairly?


    What are people wearing? I'm thinking of suiting up.

    Oh that's annoying well good luck! Yeah that's how I think it'll be too.

    I'm going to suit it up I think - that's what my school advises and we wear suits to school anyway so it'd make sense. I'm just worried I'll get totally lost trying to find the office!

    Yesss I wear one for school too so it won't be too out of the ordinary for me. Haha, I've been on an open day and went in the politics buildingy thing, so I think (hope) I know where I'm going >.>
