    Its honestly nothing to stress over at all, it is basically them showing off the University and convincing us to firm them. At the start of the informal group interview, we were told that the interviewer does not feed back to the admissions officer and so it doesnt actually affect your application (which does contradict what we were told at the start of the day but I trust the interviewer more than the presentation.) Felt like a group tutorial basically very very calm with only 3 general questions asked. (Questions were what in CompSci interests you? What Work Experience have you had? (or if none say about a project) and what previous compsci stuff have you done)

    It's just theres not much advertising for a Computer Science degree like Cambridge and Imperial. It just seems boring based on their 4 year old video. However, in the recent, I've seen graduates from Cambridge telling me that Bristols Computer Science department is very good so I really dont know because I haven't seen much yet. Guess I have to wait till the Pre-Offer day.
    Bristol was my second choice university, but after the visit day I would say it is probably tied for first with Bath.

    Also, for the group interview thing the guy just had a sheet with some notes about our personal statements and he went round asking each of us one thing. After that we just had a general discussion about topics in CS, for example computational complexity. Overall it was pretty relaxed and as long as you didn't lie on your PS it should be fine.

    Informal things, the type that theyd regularly wear on the weekend with the exception of one person in a suit and a couple vaguely smart shirts.
    I personally wore a t shirt and skinny jeans.

    I just received an invitation for a visit day on the 16th. Pretty excited, and it seems to be a more informal interview just asking me questions like why computer science, why Bristol, etc. Nothing scary then hopefully, but any advice would be great.

    Anyway, has anyone else received an invite for the 16th as well?
