    I could possibly be your tour guide.

    You'll get this when you get here but the day consists of:
    a) An hour lunch (free buffet!) to get you lot socialising.
    b) 2 tours (inside and outside) and an interview, the order of them varies depending on what group you've been assigned to.
    c) Flash bang show

    It'll be quite informal so ya know... just relax xD

    Yes, yes you will be, but the interviewer's not there to catch you out and try to make you lose your offer, they're just making sure you're not a retard basically (pardon my Francais). I couldn't answer the one and only chemistry question posed by the interviewer when I had mine but yet here I am... You'll be asked questions based on your personal statement mainly so just make sure you know what you've put in your PS!

    Trust me, you're not the only one that's bricking it. All the people I've seen and heard from all said "it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be" or something along those lines.

    I got an interview (call) with future supervisor (Jason Micklefield, department of chemistry, UoM) last friday for PhD. Then I checked my email this morning, he want me to have another discussion with Lorraine Onabanjo (Senior recruiter & admission officer) this evening (5.30 Malaysia time). Any tips? Or anybody knows Prof Jason Micklefield?
