I have an interview I don't want to go to, advice? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I have an interview for Middlesex on the 18th, they don't do the graduate diploma which I'm aiming to get on and so I'd be there for 3 years (I applied as I want to be based in London). I live up north too so the costs of going there would be big, especially as I'm going to a selection day already in London for King's on the 10th, and that's my top choice.

    I don't want to go to the interview as Middlesex was really just a filler for my UCAS app but I'm also worried that if I choose not to I won't get offers from anywhere else and end up with nothing! What should I do?


    Ring them up and tell them! So they can offer an interview to someone else.
    But you could always have it as a backup and it'll give you experience & practise for other interviews

    Use the mdx interview as a preparation for any other interviews after it, as well as keeping a backup just incase.

    If the travel cost is a big factor then just give them a quick call/email saying you're trying to focus on a small number of interviews due to travel costs. If you're polite about it, they may allow you to reschedule a later interview if other applicationbs don't work out. Basically just don't have them remember you as someone who didn't bother turning up without telling them. Good luck!
