Well, I have a interview today for Biomedical Science at Essex and was wondering if anyone could tell me what kind of questions they could ask me so I could be prepared for it a little?

Hey, I didn't have to go to an interview but I study this subject at another uni. Universities want to take up enthusiastic individuals, so if I were you, I'd think about good ways to explain why I decided on Biomedical Science, and what I find interesting about Biology. I think it's important to have the mindset that they're not trying to test your knowledge, they just want to get an impression of the kind of person you are. I heard that one of my friends with an interview for physics got asked a couple of difficult science-related questions that they weren't expected to know the answer to. This was so the interviewer could see how a student would logically approach a problem, but even so, that sounds like a particularly difficult interview to me!
You seem like you're not nervous, which is good. For many prospective students it's a good time for them to get a feel for the uni and department they might be studying with, maybe think about some questions you'd like to ask them about the nature of the course/modules/hours of study ect. If it's not a formal interview, they might just chat with you and even try to encourage you to go to Essex, rather than 'testing' you like you'd expect an interview to be.
