    hey!! I have an interview for biomedical science at Essex too .. my interview is on the 8th of Feb :/ From what I heard the interview is pretty informal.. in that all they ask you is personal statement and how you are as an individual.. I dont think they are gonna ask you anything from the course you are doing at the moment because some of my friends said they might ..
    Heyy!! you'll be fine! they were really nice and friendly
    yeah it is reaally informal.. loads of people were wearing casual clothes. i wore smart casual so twas all good.. yeah just know yur personal statement inside out really.. and who inspired to do biomed and what you find intresting about biomed.. and whats intresting about your subjects that yur taking for alevel .. cuz i do psychology the interviewer was asking me about it and we ended up talking about a book he read on dopamine and the film for the book LOL! at the end he was like he'll put in a good word for me it was a really good day.. they provide you with lunch as well.. good luck in yur interview! you'll be fine

    Hey I hope you dont mind if I asked you a few questions
    Just wondering...
    1,How is the teaching like at Essex uni for biomed?
    2, What are the opportunities that essex offers and what about the research facilities
    3, Are the labs modern and new?
    Are some of the lecturers not very good? and how demanding is it?
    I never had any issues, and if we complained about anything it was dealt with quickly.
    Research when i was there they were scoring high, some of my friends final year projects were published.
    Labs it depends where you work, final year ours were better condition than the hospital i am currently working in.

    First year i was in 35hours a week, and then coursework/reading on top, second year was 30hours or so a week with reading/cswk on top. its not like american studies where you have 8 hours a week, you do have to work.
