    I got an invitation for an MPhys interview and visit this morning

    Just wondering, what should I wear to interview? I'm a boy by the way (not sure if this is indicated by my profile as I'm new here).

    Also, is it true what I'm reading about being given an interview for physics meaning that it's very likely I'll get an offer?

    hey man, that's great - congrats!

    I'm also applying for MPhys but have only received an email saying that they're considering my application - did you get this?

    Also was just wondering what your predicted grades are like?

    All the best with your interview!

    Thanks!

    Yeah I got that and then about a week later I got my invitation in the post. I wasn't emailed about the interview which surprised me a bit.

    I've got an A* in maths already and I'm predicted A*A*A in physics, chemistry and further maths respectively. I doubt I'll get that chemistry grade though.

    Thanks! Hopefully you get an interview too

    Ah wow you should definitely get in! I got 2 As then a C in history after getting As in class all year because I misread the dates on the question! But I am determined to get an A in my retake :^_^:
    oops, i guess once in a while everyone makes mistakes XD

    The main thing you can do now is to be on top of your revision for History as well as starting your revision early to avoid any issues in the exam in the summer :-D
    I hope you do very well in you retake :-) !! Ahh regarding me, hmmm i definetly hope i get an offer so that i can firm it , Insha Allah :-P

    Wow... Good job with the maths mate, and I'm pretty much in the same situation as you in terms of subjects and predicted grades except I do biology instead of chemistry...

    I'm only worrying cause a guy in my school has received his letter in the post yet I've heard nothing, some people have said it might be that they're tackling it in alphabetical order, I don't know how far down you are, though you handed in your application a lot earlier than mine!

    Thanks! You're bound to get a letter soon then.

    My surname starts with M so there's plenty of names left to come after me if that is the way they're doing it.

    Ahah yeah, I felt pretty stupid, but I recalled my paper and my history teacher said it was an A-grade essay, just irrelevant, so at least I can do the exam as long as I read the question!

    You shouldn't worry, you probably will get an offer, best of luck ahah!!

    Hello, I'm applying for Physics and I have an interview this Thursday (24th).

    I've tried searching and people have stated that the interview offer is very likely to end up in a place at the university. However since they increased their entry requirements for physics in 2012 (it is now A*A*A - A*AA) I am unsure what the format of the interview will be like.

    Has anyone had their interview for physics yet and if so can they describe what it was like please? I'm incredibly nervous because I'm not terribly great at problem solving which is sure to come up if the interview is academic.

    Spoiler:

    In order to answer some people's questions in case they are wondering:

    I sent my application off around 2 weeks ago, and received an interview offer a week later and I take Physics, Maths and Further Maths. My predicted grades are A*A*A* and I'm applying to Lancaster, UCL, Oxford and Warwick as well.
