    I already have an offer from Reading which I got 6 days ago to study BA Archaeology with conditions of getting 280 UCAS points from 3 A-Levels.

    But today I get a letter through inviting me to this open day and to have an informal interview.

    Is anyone else going to this?

    Plus why do they want to interview me if they have already given me an offer? Is this a good thing? Or could they withdraw my offer if for some reason they do not like me?

    Also on the timetable for the open day it says that parents and students are seperated for lunch, I am quite worried about this as I am Vegan and I do not know what I will eat, and being with all the other students I do not know on my own is scary, I have aspergers syndrome so I am not very good at social interaction in new places.
    Why do they do this?

    What is the open day like if you have been?
    And what is the interview like? What kinds of questions do they ask?

    Sorry that ended up being a lot more questions than I origionally intended to ask...

    hmmm....thats wierd :/ I got an offer about the same time as you, and I havnt been asked for an interveiw :/

    but, I doubt its a bad thing. I went to Southampton for an interview last week, (without having been giving an offer) and BEFORE my interview, like right at the begining of the day, they said they would be making me and offer of ABB. I asked the carrers person at school about this afterwards, and she said that its because if you muck up your exams, and dont quite get the offer, you can ring them and basically grovel, whilst they look at their notes from the interview to see if they want you anyway. Does that make sense?

    Good luck whatever happens!
