    Hi!

    I applied for Biochemistry with an year in industry. I got invited to an interview on the 11th of December yesterday.
    I am incredibly excited cause I am not from the UK and that would actually be my first visit! Do you guys know whether the interview is subject specific or rather just getting to know you better?

    DFTBA
    I applied for the same, and have an interview on the 6th of November. I assume it's pretty subject, but I really have no idea about the style of the interviews, and how academic they are. It's actually annoying me - I don't know how to prepare.

    Has anyone applied for Cognitive Neuroscience and Psychology? Have you heard anything yet? Excluding the acknowledgement email obviously.

    Me too! It's exasperating! At least at Oxford and Cambridge you have a slight idea of what to expect. But then unlike Manchester they don't reassure you that almost all interviewed applicants are successful.

    I wish you the best of luck on the 6th of November!

    Exactly - they even have guides about how to prepare. Hehe, that's also true. Still. I wish I could know. I suppose by using the Cambridge guide, I'd be pretty comprehensively prepared.

    I don't think you need that much preparation! Any Nerdfighter is naturally awesome! Yet, for some reason, I still wake up every morning two hours earlier than necessary to revise chemistry and biology.

    How did you get into Nerdfighteria?

    Manchester often doesn't send acknowledgements, but do rest assured that they will have received it. You'll just have to wait until they've made a decision now.

    Good luck!

    Congratulations!! What time did you receive the offer?
    Not entirely sure on the time, but i know it was on the 21st October. I forgot to check my actual track rather than just my emails, so i found out a few days late! I know that my recent Sheffield Uni offer came through at pretty much bang on 6pm though
