    From what I gather each separate course has a visit day/interview on its own day which is usually a Wednesday. Like my visit day was all Maths and actuarial science students. The next week was a different combination of maths with _____

    They're probably just waiting until everyone has applied, so that they only have to do one interview day for that specific course.

    Me too! I've got one for Chemical Engineering. What subject have you applied for? Is it me or do most people have the interview on the 11th, haven't heard many people having interviews on the 4th.
    How was your interview? Was it pretty informal? Any tips, or anything I should worry about? Thanks

    Hey The interview day was pretty nice. Started off with a talk ( in which they told us what Chem eng is and how theyre raising requirements for 2015 entries to A*AA) in the james chadwick building followed by some lunch with undergrad chem eng students. The lunch was actually where you'll get most of your questions answered.Then there's a tour around the James Chadwick building, which by the way is fantastic. Then you go to another building called the mill ( I think ) which is about a 5 minute walk and there you get to sit in a big lecture hall and then they call you to interviews in groups, I didnt really have to wait but if you are in another group then you'll probably listen to another talk whilst you wait. My interview was very informal, i dont think i can call it an interview at all. I was taken to another building where i met one of my interviewers and he took me to his office, on the way to the office he was giving me a mini tour of the place. The first question he asked was why Chem Eng and I told him, gave him a pretty detailed answer ( lol ) and he said it was a good answer but you could say theres good money and job prospects . I think it was a joke (or not) and then he looks at a sheet of paper and says if i have any questions for him. So i asked him about the study abroad/Language learning opportunities. And we just talked about stuff/oppurtunities abroad for Chemical engineers and then he said something about S.Korea and we talked about how they have better wifi than we do and the he was critisizing germany's wifi (pretty random).. and then he ended it and he said see you next year ( I was like ) , so yeah random chatting after one genuine question. Then I just went home.Received an offer on track today . It was a very friendly and comfortable environment. You have nothing to worry about, you'll be fine If your still worried just know what Chem Eng is and why you want to study it. Manchester is a fantastic university and I'm sure you'll love it. Good luck !

    Hi all, I'm looking for some advice
    I applied for Biology (C100) but my application was declined because:
    1. The University apparently doesn't count maths and further maths as separate A-Levels
    2. They require all 3 A-Levels to be done in one sitting
    Now my current A-Level choices are bio, maths and further maths (respective predictions AA*B) and 1 would mean that I can't use further maths, but I thought that would be fine because I also have an A-Level in Polish which I finished in 2012 and got grade A, but then I learned about 2 and essentially 2 of my A-Levels have been ignored. Had I known about these particular requirements, I never would've applied (or visited!) in the first place. They are listed nowhere on their website. What can I do? I've called UCAS but it's too late to change my application, I've called Manchester who have admitted to wasting my time (!) and I'm getting my school to write a letter asking them to reconsider my application. I have an offer for C100 from Sheffield who acknowledge my early A-Level.

    It is nonsensical to ignore your A-Level just because you've done it early. If worse comes to worst, would they accept it if you take your Polish again and have that counted?

    I can understand why, Oxbridge demand 3 at once so that students "are able to handle the workload", my problem is that I wasn't told about these requirements. Seriously, if you can find them on the website, I'll find you and give you a fiver
