    I've just found out that I've got an interview for Wadham to study law on the 10th Dec. I'm a bit worried about the interview, will I need to have read up on the subject or will they just be trying to see if I have potential? Also what is the written test like? And is there a lot of waiting around?

    Hi, I got an interview too...I have been reading around current affairs ...reading an introductory Law book would not do any harm..really though, I think the interview tests potential although if you can explore wider areas through your own knowledge, I am sure that the interviewer will pick up straight away future potential enthusiasm for the subject which is equally important to academic ability...I think the written test is based on you showing an ability for logical and analytical thinking...so there may be extracts on which you have to comment....I think there will be plenty of waiting around because of what is says in the prospectus and given the fact you are (I believe) likely to have 3 interviews (+ the test).anyway, good luck
