    Hey, I found out this weekend that I have an interview at Oxford for Geography next week..
    Basically want to know who else has interviews?
    Or possibly any interview questions anyone know of that could help me in any way?
    Thanks

    I have an interview at Herford College. They've asked me to go down on Saturday.

    I literally have this to go off!
    "It is requested that you report to the College Lodge not later than 5pm on Saturday 4th December, to attend for Dinner in Hall at 6pm that evening. You will be required to stay until 5pm on Tuesday, and may be required until Wednesday. "

    Still, that's part of the experience I suppose!
    Apparently we all have to do the pilot of the admissions test on Tuesday, but it doesn't count towards the decision of whether they offer us a place from 3-5pm on Tuesday.

    Interview questions from research, seem to be largely based on reading articles. You really can't say though, I guess it purely depends on the interviewer. I'm just reading over my notes from the past two years and anything extra I'm interested in.

    Anyone else being interviewed at Hertford?

    I'm coming from London, going by coach because I'm cheap and because I've done the route before, so should be used to it! Also there's free Wifi on board, wahoo! I'm really excited meeting all the Geographers, its like a weekend break for me
    I've booked a 11:20 coach so I arrive there at around 1:30pm so have time to relax before our *FUN* one hour essay test

    Just saw this and wanted to say good luck to everybody - but especially you guys Had an interview there last year; rejected but it was a really fun few days

    With regards to the 'when you go home' thing - if last year is anything to go by there'll be a LOT of geographers. Out of everyone that applied last year (they interviewed everybody...), only about 15 of us had to stay the extra two days. So chances are....
