    TVU probably ask you if you can spell your name.

    JK! Usually interviews are just based upon why you chose the course, why it would benefit you and what efforts you have made towards the course beforehand eg background reading, work experience etc. Also they may want to discuss your PS.

    Its TVU, by showing up to the interview your in

    but in all seriousness they'll ask you why you chose them, and what you can bring to the course which makes you stand out. mostly they want to know about your dedication to the subject more than anything

    What do you mean by, 'Its TVU, by showing up to the interview you're in'?!

    I went for my interview at TVU a month ago- you first do the maths and English test- Maths was quite tough because they dont give you much time !
    Then the group discussion was easy - as long as you say something or share an experience you have had.
    The interview was easy and relaxed - they want you to show that you really want to do this course and you are 100% sure that you can and will finish the course!
    Just be your self !

    Maths - just learn to add, subtract, divide and multiply; convert ml to l, g to mg, etc. and convert decimals to fractions and vice versa.
    English - learn to write coherently and make sense. They are not so concerned about the content of your essay but want to know that you can construct a sentence and understand grammar.
    Group discussion - ours was on care and respect in elderly care. Ensure that you give everyone a chance to speak and speak up yourself.

    I think quite a lot of people must have turned down TVU (or UWL as it is now). I know I did, as did a couple of my classmates.

    Good luck.
