    I have my test day on wednesday! I'm majoring in societies and minoring in sciences & engineering.

    Please could those who've already been to the test day please let me know what the dress code is? I'm not sure if it's smart in the way an interview would be or not as it's more of an applicant's day.

    If anyone could help, I'd be really grateful!

    (this is definitely the most important question to ask )
    Everyone was dressed pretty chilled out in jeans and a t shirt. I wore a pink dress with a lace midriff, a cardigan and a pair of boots. Basically what I'd wear out with friends

    Don't worry, I think the maths we did was only based on C3!! Our lectures were on a different topic though so I can't be sure as for the sciences, I do maths and further maths (did chemistry at AS but dropped it) and I managed but I did struggle because knowledge of A2 chemistry or physics was definitely expected!! I think I only got away with my poor answer to my second question because of double maths 😂 Out of the four sciences and engineering questions, the first was a compulsory maths one and the other three were definitely based on chemistry and physics so I would look over that a bit too. Don't worry about swotting loads because it's not the sort of test you can revise for and just throw facts at them, it's more of a "can you apply scientific thinking to these situations" and on ours they intentionally talked about an area of science not covered by a level syllabuses so that we were on even ground. Yeah you can use the Internet which I found helpful in my minor question (cultures) because I was able to look up quotes from a book I was writing about, but I didn't use it in the other questions - there wasn't time!! Good luck and enjoy the day at UCL!! Are you going to firm them?

    Sorry that's a long one!! Trying to give fair advice without giving too much away is harder than it sounds 😂😂 but I emailed in advance to ask about chemistry and physics because I don't do them so I don't feel too bad about it!!
    Thats okay, thank you for the long reply, I needed it!! Im going to go over some c3 suff tonight, do you think I should take my laptop? Also, since we have the internet to use, im sure ill be a little bit better despite the time limit. Also Im minoring in the same thing as you, as well! That means if we go, we'll see other on the course haha

    To be honest I wouldn't bother with your laptop assuming you have a functional phone unless you think you're going to want to look things up - especially for the maths question typing your answers is probably more time consuming than just handwriting them!! Haha that's so cool, good luck for tomorrow!!!!
