    Sent off my task to UCL at the end of November but there is still no response. I have received 4 other offers but my first choice How does your portfolio look like? Is it better to bring real works than printing them out?

    They received my task the second week of November. There was only one interviewer there, and they scheduled it to be 20mins per interview. Yeah there is not much asked about me specifically, just my view on the Bartlett. I suppose my interview lasted the full 20 mins but felt very quick.

    Yeah I've also had my 4 other offers, just waiting on this last one.

    My portfolio was a few large paintings, 2 life drawings and some photographs. In the interview invite they specify specifically to bring in the actual piece of work. A person sitting next to me before the interview seems to have had a booklet made with the works inside it, which is specifically what they said not to do.

    The interview was scheduled for 20 minutes, but felt very quick. For an example of how rushed it was, I finished explaining a sculpture I created, he then flipped through my portfolio and found my life drawings. He simply asked me what it was, then flipped them over as well, without taking a look. He didn't spend too much time looking over my paintings either. But this was an interview overseas in Hong Kong, so I suspect the interview process may be different in the UK (and probably entirely dependent on the interviewer!).

    I had a couple of paintings, life drawings and photographs. Just as others mentioned in this thread, I wouldn't bring a huge amount of work.

    did you bring very large paintings or have you seen anyone bringing quite large paintings? my painting is basically around 80 cm x 80 cm, will it be too large to carry around?

    Congratulations on being invited to interview :-) As I mentioned, my interview was really bizarre and probably not the standard interview, even speaking to other applicants at my interview day mine was a very different interview to most of theirs. So I'm probably not the best person to ask for advice, as I was barely asked any questions, only one on my EPQ which I wrote about links between architecture and behaviour and even then I was cut off by the interviewer about a sentence into my answer. In terms of tips I would say be selective about what you bring in your portfolio, don't just bring every piece of art you've ever made. The interviews are short and my interviewer thanked me for only bringing a select few pieces of work which I thought were interesting. I personally think that the extra personal statement is very important, before interviewing me, my interviewer had both my UCAS personal statement and my extra one and only read over my extra one before starting the interview. I'd say definitely make sure that in your extra personal statement you speak about things specific to the Bartlett and make it apparent that your own interests and personality chime with what's expected and taught there! I know that a few people who were interviewed on the same day as me entered into debates with their interviewer and had to defend their artwork! The interview overall was quite an informal process so don't worry about it too much, it was a lot less intimidating than I was expecting, best of luck!!
    Thank you so much that was extremely helpful! I wish you all the best of luck this year
