    The title basically says it all.
    Am i meant to bring anything, Know anything about the subjects??



    The purpose of a taster day is to experience a regular college day to help you make the choice about the college you want to go to.

    On a taster day you'll have the subjects you applied for. You bring your own equipment. On my college taster day they have been very nice and paid for transport and food.

    You do not need to know anything about your subjects. That's the purpose of college to go and study and learn about your subjects. You might feel the need to look over the specification and buy some revision guides to look over but nothing serious.

    Walk around licking everything and writing about the experience in my notebook.


    Pen, pencil, the basics. It's like the simplest of school days, with maybe one or two lessons (or it was at mine).

    It's just basically a normal college day. At mine we were given a timetable with our chosen subjects on and then we had to go to that lesson although the actual lesson itself was the teacher talking about the subject - you did't really need to know anything. I thought it'd be really boring but to be honest it was actually okay. Bring the basic things like a pen and maybe a notebook or whatever really
