    I've got suit trousers and smart tops..not taking a suit jacket because a) i don't have room and b) i think it might look a little OTT and the interview book said don't worry too much about dressing up.

    Go with what you feel comfortable wearing

    Basically, i talked to an interviewer before. They dont really remember what u wear. The only memory she had was a person wearing gold sneakers.

    PS the person wearing gold sneakers got in.

    Look at previous threads as already advised by Adshur. This is the umpteenth time this subject has been brought up.
    Threads also apply to Cambridge so there's no need for a separate one for them!

    my school advised i wore a suit and introduced myself with a "how do you do?"

    No chance!

    I'm going to be going in chinos and loafers, and with a very vibrant shirt

    And i know one of my interviewers is only 30 something, i think i'll just say, "hello" ?

    The vibrant shirt might be a spur to remembering you - could be a good thing.
    I hope you'll say more than "hello" - lol

    What's wrong with hello? That's what I'm going to say.

    Of course, nothing wrong with it, perhaps it's just not formal enough.

    Tbh i even doubt if i'll say hello, i never say it in real life, i'll probably just say hi

    I spent three years studying law at Lincoln College, Oxford and so I got to know what tutors think about interviews quite well.

    Basically, most tutors won't care what you wear, unless it was really scruffy in which case they might care a bit.

    Some tutors, however, will prefer candidates wearing smart clothes (eg a suit).

    So the safe option is to wear a suit! It's also good for your self confidence to feel smart.

    Having said that, I personally don't think the interview is *that* important, obviously it matters a bit but they also care a lot about your predicted grades, your references and how you've done in your exams so far.
