Have Uni Interview today for Biomed - What questions could they ask me? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hey Guys;

    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.
Have you ever experienced racism/sexism at uni?
