    Mine was kinda like that. Though, they made a comment about pushing me more because I'm a grad, with more experience, so even though I didn't feel that stressed/pushed, it seemed like they didn't think it was easy.

    I came out smiling too, though. The couple of people before me didn't look so happy when they left. :/

    yea. They literally only asked what I've read, so i was kind of just talking, lost track of time a little too, usually I'd be dead nervous. The guy before me was pretty happy.

    gooood i felt good about it afterwards because they were friendly. but i dont wanna jinx it!!
    do you mind me asking how long yours lasted?
    I was told i was in for 35 minutes which I found defficult to believe but effectively I doubled the time by asking a random question that popped into my head before I was about to leave and that turned it into a secondary conversation. Got myself into a hole over PBL though but I think I was able to recover slightly<< they wernt happy at first though.

    Interviewed yestarday,

    really enjoyed it, felt so nervous before but it was really interesting and the tutors doing the interview are very very friendly.

    The questions were nice but its unfair to list any. My favourite university so far of all the places ive applied.
    I got the good cop bad cop routine?

    Everyone get that?

    I didn't either, and they said something like "good, that means you've done your homework" and chuckled at me.

    Not at all

    I was halfway through the .... "I feel that all the information provided by the............................. ....very informative................think that I have no worries about glasgow ............................." routine then I remembered that I wasnt leaving until i dug myself out of the pbl hole.

    Every source told me not to ask questions.

    They all also told me not to drink the water because my hand mught shake and show my nerves.

    I thought that was strange and disregarded practicality because my voice cracks when it gets dry. I practically drank the whole jug. I was the only person not to drink it because there was no tap yet the jug was full and I was there early and diddnt see it being refilled.

    I am definately way too OCD lol

    I swear I've seen another 'TENDYRA' on these forums. I think it was on the old Sheffield thread or something.

    Anyway. Good luck. They're lovely in Glasgow. Make sure you're well rested if you're travelling from Manchester to there .

    EDIT: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/member.php?u=349050. The other Tendyra. Maybe you're cousins or something? .
