    Hey guys. My interview is tomorrow. Just like to ask anyone who's done the interview already whether you actually do have to write an essay? None of the documents I was sent through the portal mention an essay. Only a questionnaire and ethical case study.
    hmm I don't think you've read the 'info for applicants' document carefully! it says task 1 is an ethical case study and task 2 is an essay! no mention of a questionnaire anywhere?!??! check that document- its with the criminal check thing! its not very helpful though- seems very vague to me! could someone who has already done the interview clarify what the essay is actualyl on? btw good luck with your interview tomorrow!! hope it goes well

    My interview is next month. On the portal it says I have to complete an essay and ethical case study. 15min time allocation each.

    Good luck for your interview. Please let us know how it went.

    Has anyone had the thought
    That kings give out interviews based on the UCAS applications they receive first? Ie. The earlier the you submitted your application, the earlier they receive it, and the earlier you possibly get a reply!

    I sent mine on 14 october and got an invite early last week, So it''s probably nothing to do with when applications were received.

    I am going to hypothesise that they are giving out interviews in (wait for it......)

    UCAS candidate number numerical order! Might explain the apparent randomness of the whole thing. Lowest UCAS number through to highest.

    Maybe?

    Which documents did you receive?? Getting a little scared that I didn't receive any!! Or do you only get them once you're called for an interview??

    You get the PDF letter once you're invited to interview. It explains the procedure for the interview day. Someone on here posted the PDF link in an earlier post.

    Has everyone who has an interview got/predicted A*s at A level? (Just blue sky thinking here after exeters rejection)


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    I'm predicted A*AA and I have an interview, but they want A's not A*'s so I don't know why it makes a difference

    I can deal with achieved A*s but predicted takes the biscuit, as lots are just rubbish! Hopefully they offer them the A* if they selected them for interview because of it!
