Ok the interview season is pretty pretty much upon us, some uni's have already started making interviews and Oxford and Cambridge interviews are only a few days away.

I thought it would be a good idea to have a whole thread dedicated to interview questions: the sort of things you get asked, and how you responded, so that other people can get an idea of what it might be like.

Please post your questions below with the following information:


University (and college):
Subject:
Year:

Question:
Your answer:
Interviewers response:

Post as many questions as you can correctly remember, but if you can't remember exactly what the question was don't bother putting it down. Try not to talk about the questions - maybe that could go on another thread.

Also maybe one of the mods could make this a sticky for the rest of the interview season.

Good luck anyone with an interview this year

Aw - that doesn't sound too bad - especially as you arrived at the correct answers after prodding. That's what they want to know - not how much YOU know - but how you respond to their coaching

Haha I had an Interview there, its a total dump. If pink Portakabins are your "thing" then Brunel if for you! I couldn't understand what the interviewer was moaning on about and to be honnest I didn't care. I just wanted to get out of that cess-pit as soon as possible.
