    I imagine it depends on the individual school, but my interview was very gentle. Just a quick, why do you want to study at Birkbeck, why this course, will you be able to manage working and studying, etc. It wasn't so much of a selection thing really.

    EDIT: Congrats on the interview

    I am currently at Birkbeck I think within a week I was sent a letter confirming my place. But as I said, it really wasn't any kind of selection process, it was just a chat about the course and why I wanted to do it and making sure I knew what it entailed with the head of department, and then as I left he said "See you at the start of the academic year".

    Thanks for all your help, they asked me the exact same questions and asked me about a book lol

    After the interview I immediately got an email saying I have a provisional offer on the basis I give in my A level certificates

    Thanks for the help xx
