    I had an interview last year for advertising and media
    they just want to look through your work and talk to you; make sure the course is right for you, make sure you're the kind of person they want on their course (i.e. not a slacker and ur taking the course for the right reasons) talk about the course and what you know about it and talk a bit about your a-levels/etc.

    I was scared-as but it was really ok

    good luck everyone!

    That's ok
    Just anything you think is relevant really. They don't mind how much is in there, they just want to see something
    I had a regular ring-binder with only a few things, as that's all I'd done. I put in:
    *GCSE course work:
    - two (or was it three lol) essays
    - magazine front cover, two-page contents and two-page article
    *A-Level course work:
    - magazine front cover
    - magazine two-page article
    - essay, research project

    Hope that helps
