What's your firm? Haha, my interview went really well, the interviewer was a really nice guy and he spoke more about his university life than anything. I met a lot of really nice people there as well, like the current students and the applicants and I like the fact is a campus uni, hopefully they offer me xD

In all fairness, if they're being flexible with offer requirements this year then they may still accept you if you dont meet the requirements.

I have an interview/ open day thingie for Law and Human Rights LLB on the 11th of March, kind of nervous. Do you guys think it would seem weird or immature if I bought my mum along as well? I thought she could keep me company since I will be travelling from East london which is quite a journey lol.

You could bring your mum, some people brought their mum/dad. I travelled from West London alone and I thought it would be better that way because I'd be able to meet a lot of people, which I did. Made a lot of new friends and I don't think I would've socialised much if I had brought someone with me

That's reassuring. Are the people there friendly? I'm more introverted than extroverted so going to a completely new surrounding by myself would put me in shock (not literally) so hopefully my mother being there will help me keep somewhat calm and collective.

Yeah everyone was really friendly, you get to speak to the current students who volunteered as tour guides but there are also other applicants in your group who you can speak with. Bring your mum if it'll calm you down, but i can assure you once you get there you will be at ease they do a lot to make sure you have a good experience, and the interview is so relaxed so don't be nervous and good luck

Thanks.
Do we have to dress smart for the interview? I'm thinking of wearing coloured skinny jeans and casual top with a blazer but I'm worried that might seem too laid back.

Omg no ahha, they mention on the letter you're not expected to dress formally but I thought they were trying to catch us out, so I wore a dress and a blazer. Literally every other applicant came in jeans and trainers lol the guys dressed smart casual, like jeans and smart shoes and smart shirt, but the girls there were all in jeans and trainers and hoodies I felt so out of place Ahah
