    Hi, I recently applied for an MSc course and have received a response stating that they want to interview me via skype. My anxiety levels shot through the roof as soon as i read this email! And i still have a knot in my stomach even now. I finished my undergraduate degree 4 years ago and planned to do some 'revision' over the summer if i got onto the course.
    This has caught me completely off guard and i was just wondering if anyone has any insight into the type of questions i may be asked.
    Also, is it a common practice to interview postgrad students, or is it just because they're unsure about my app / I'm a mature student?
