    Thank you!

    Haha alright, hope you manage to find it alright. I might see you if you're up on the 1st February. But are you or are you not wishing they'd just email about it? I was when they sent me a letter with no postage attached that I then had to collect from the Post Office and pay for. Ah, the joys of snail mail.
    Oh wow that's very soon- let me know how it goes! I don't think I am, I have a feeling I picked the date furthest away. Yes ! 🙏Although it does feel much more personal

    Yep, will do! I had the opposite approach - I picked the soonest because I get too excited over these things. Also, if I hadn't heard from them by then I would've been wanting to scope out when we were likely to hear. But mostly impatience.

    Mm true, I don't get much post so it is that much more exciting to get a letter than an email. Especially a letter on some very fine paper.

    Sounds like me. I gotta say that I'm very well stocked with maps now, I've somehow ended up with 3 identical maps of St Andrews… If I get lost despite this fact then I'm officially dense.

    Haha, even without the maps it would be a challenge- there are only three main streets... Did you notice that they highlighted the chemistry department and where they want us to meet? I thought that was so cute! xx

    Hey i have an interview on the 28th for the same course and i was wondering if the few questions that they asked were just randomly from the syllabus or did you mention any of these in your personal statement and like did they ask about other things in your personal statement e.g. hobbies,teams, events/conferences?
    They didn't refer to my personal statement at all, he only asked very simple things, nothing complex. It'll be from the syllabus I'm sure, but since everyone will be doing different exam boards, you'll probably be asked basic things. It was very informal, but make sure you're able to talk about an area of chemistry at least! Maybe something you've been doing in class, or something you're interested in personally.

    You should definitely firm Bristol and decline Durham. That might free up a place for them to give me an offer.

    Haha, I kid, obviously. Personally as you may have figured out I would choose Durham, but I don't really know enough about Bristol to compare.

    Bristol. Durham is dull...you get a good education, but definitely has no nightlife.

    It was nice. He asked some questions beyond spec, but nothing nasty, and it was quite fun. He asked about stuff I'd done on my PS as well, which made a change.

    Don't be nervous, it was really relaxed.

    And cheers, I hope I do to. Going for the clean sweep. :lol:

    Hi!
    I've applied to Imperial, York, UCL, Warwick and Bath. I got 4 A's in Chemistry, Biology, Maths and Psychology at AS and also in EPQ. So far I have 3 interviews and I'm still waiting to hear from Warwick and Bath. Has anyone had an interview at any of the others, that could give me some advice on what to do, apart from read over my personal statement?
