    I also got an interview for Sheffield on 13 January 😃
    A mere 5 hours after they received my application, wow, that was fast!

    I have to say I thought Sheffield was the worst interview experience I had last year - they were not very forthcoming and at times seemed to be trying to put people off - a current student has commented earlier with similar points about their interview style. I also had the feeling that they were really looking for more mature applicants (I was doing my A levels at the time) as the emphasis seemed to be on your experience (which is limited at 17!). I would be interested to know what the ratio is between mature students and college leavers. They kept everyone waiting a long time too. I know its a good university but it didn't do it for me.

    It wouldn't do if we all liked the same things and it goes to show that each uni has its own preferences too.

    Good luck to everyone with interviews and I hope todays interviews at BCU went well.

    Good luck for tomorrow - try not to worry it's all fairly relaxed!

    I will be looking out for the nervous interviewees as I leave my last lecture of the day - what time does it all kick off?

    Well at least you know what you are aiming for now but I remember the stress of applying, interviews then exams and waiting for results last year - I managed to convince myself that I had failed everything which thankfully did not turn out to be the case. What subjects are you taking?

    Enjoy the moment! I noticed on the interview list you went for another interview today - how did that go?

    Must stop stalking this thread .....
