    Could anyone tell me questions asked in interviews? General ones with no specific regard to the course.


    Im sorry ElWilson I dont think anyone at this time dare tell you questions they got in the interviews, especially as most interviewers expressly asked us not to. However, you can think along the lines: "Why the course?" "Why the university?", but they didnt ask me any such thing in my interview, neither did they ask many ppl whom I spoke to.

    Just chill the interviews are not that bad- unless your going for something crazy like med/vet. I found many of the questions are general and based on your application for example, ' oh i see that your an enthusiastic badminton player..' blah blah. I found the interviews are heavily based on the UCAS statement and your grades.
    Good luck and just be yourself!!!!!!

    Edit: If you are really desperate, i recommend flirting with the admissions tutor. :p: Oh God ive got a serious problem about seducing admissions tutors :confused:

    Which uni is interviewing you?

    I wouldn't worry excessively over the questions in advance. Just try to think of potential questions, how you would answer them, which questions you would ask them, etc

    Hmm...I didn't even know potential students get interviewd...

    The vast majority of courses and unis don't seem to
    There are some (such as applying to Oxford or Cambridge, or applying for med or vet) that interview far more frequently - but loads and loads don't
