    There'll be problems with your interviewers getting into uni too. Glasgow has cancelled exams for Wednesday and Thursday so far due to the weather. It's really cold so all the snow has frozen so the roads are a nightmare.
    haha That's where we'll be for 6-7 years.

    I live down in Sheffield and my interview was supposed to be yesterday (8th December), but I called Tuesday morning to see if they were still on and the admin lady advised that I not try to travel up to Scotland even though the interviews hadn't been cancelled, and re-arranged mine for Jan. So if you're at all worried about getting there in the snow, I'd just ring them; they don't seem to mind re-arranging.

    was your exam on the exact same day as your interview. I got an exam three days after my interview. how was it trying to change it? do they give you a new date immediately?
    It was the exact same day. I just e-mailed them (the address was on the letter) and explained I had an exam that day, could I possibly have a different interview date, they e-mailed back within a day confirming a new date.

    Probably not, for now, but in the future maybe. Universities in Scotland are Free to Scottish and EU students as it is funded by the Scottish government, however for students from England it is currently £1,820 pa (£2,895 for medicine).
    However there have been reports that the Scottish government is considering raising the figure as English university fees rise. This is basically so that Scottish institutions can compete with the English ones, and because it is no longer sustainable for the Scottish governemnt to subsidise higher education.

    Hey cheers for the info ! I also got a B in Physics but i got a high B just 4 marks from an A . I was wondering how you answered the first question about your grades. She sounds very patronising nd rude the way you have written it. Was this the Case ?

    sorry everyone, it was foolish of me to do that!

    i guess i was just a bit annoyed by the way she phrased the question

    my only advice is to be yourself and be honest be well prepared on a wide range of questions

    bonne chance!!
