    I have an informal interview at the admissions day in February, i wondered if i should dress smart (shirt and tie) in order to give a good impression? Or is it a more relaxed atmosphere where they would rather i dressed casual? Can somebody help me
    Cheers

    Admissions day? Do you mean open day? I doubt they'll expect you be all dressed up for that. Sometimes the interviews turn out to be nothing more than pulling you aside for a moment and chatting with you.

    It says on the letter that its called an "admissions day" because its for people who have been offered a place. Thanks

    Yeh an admissions day is what ucas calls it, its basically a more indepth open day however simply because there is less people. The clue of 'informal interview' should give you an idea of what to wear, I would suggest smart casual but you shouldnt need to wear a suit or anything.

    Well since you already have an offer... it really doesn't matter what kind of impression you make, does it?

    I'd agree with you, but it would be nice to get a reduced offer and take the pressure off abit for my exams.

    Is anybody planning on going to see the history department on the 25th Feb?

    Also could anybody recommend a decent place to stay for the night before (preferably which isn't going to make my wallet unhappy)

    There's a Premier Inn in Bangor, around a two minute drive from the university other than that, I can't actually think of any hotels in Bangor itself! There are a few in the towns surrounding Bangor, like Menai Bridge, which is on Anglesey and about five minutes from Bangor. You might want to bring a car

    I did see there was a Premier Inn, but it's easier and quicker for me to get a train as opposed to driving, I was looking for somewhere a little closer to the train station. I think I've found somewhere though... Cheers anyway

    As far as I'm aware, not everybody who get's an offer from Bangor are given the opportunity to sit one of the interviews. I'm not too sure whether this is based on promise of individual applicants or on a departmental basis. If it's only offered to promising applicants it's more than possible the offer could be lowered...

    Anyway just put your best foot forward and you get what you get given at the end of the day, worth a try at least!
