    Just set up this thread so uni applicants can see where they stand in terms of having an interview.

    In my case, I want to do Geography, perhaps at Leeds Uni. Would I be asked for an interview? I have seen on a similar thread that Humanities aren't interviewed at all. But I wondered if Leeds Uni would anyway? Any ideas?

    A lot of unis don't interview for a lot of subjects anymore - i applied (over two years) for biology/biochemistry at durham, bath, bristol, cardiff, nottingham, manchester and york and none of them had a policy to interview.

    Is it really that hard to look at the undergraduate geography pages of the universities you are interested in? They will say the grades you need, and if it says candidates will be interviewed, you will have to have an interview. If it doesn't say anything about an interview then you won't need one.

    I don't think so,

    I applied cambridge, warwick, bath, bristol and durham and cambridge was the only one to interview. None of my friends had interviews for unis other than Cambridge, Oxford and Imperial.

    You will have an interview for uni if it was for a subject that required one such as medicine, becoming a teacher etc, just to show them if you're the right person for the course. So for Geography I doubt you would need an interview, but if you do it's usually top universities that will give you one.

    Don't go too crazy though. That should have had a capital T and I.
