    I have problem of over-excitation, in which I talk to fast and stop listening to the speaker. I have to get it under control, same as uncontrollable tapping and stammer.
    Are you going to do some revision beforehand- in case of an odd geology question?

    I will look on the internet what type of odd questions they could ask in the interview about geology, but I don't think that it will be something that i don't know about. Anyway, I will revise my tectonics stuff that i am doing currently in geography.

    Does everyone get an interview for Southampton?
    Ive heard they are quite taxing and just wondered if they are because everyone who applies receives one?

    I don't know if everyone gets an interview for Southampton. Personally, my interview there felt more difficult than the one I had at Imperial. There weren't that many people there on the visit day (only like 8 for Geophysics I think) though.

    According to last year's admissions statistics, only about 50% of people who got an interview at Imperial for Earth Sciences would have got a place...

    It's sort of reconstructed from different sources. Last year, there were just over 4 applications per place. According to the ESE Dept's website, they interview around 50% of applicants. So therefore, around 50% of the people with interviews must get in. Probably a bit higher than that since they'll give out more offers than places but I'd be surprised if it were much higher than 50%.

    Yeah as you say, more offers than places, maybe it's because a lot go to Oxbridge as a firm and imperial is their insurance. There's also those that don't meet the grades.
