QUB have posted this on their FB page for those needing help with interviews;

Applying for Undergraduate programmes this year? Here are some tips for interview...

• Arrive 15-20 minutes early with all your papers organised and ready for inspection (failure to bring appropriate paperwork may result in your interview not going ahead)

• Dress appropriately – neat, business like attire, and a tidy, professional-looking appearance. There may not be parking nearby so you may need comfortable shoes.

• Be ready to talk about yourself and your experience – prepare to describe situations where you were able to deliver care, or make decisions under pressure, whether at home in the family or in a workplace.

• You will need to explain why you have chosen this career. It is important to demonstrate that you understand what you’re getting into, so do your research.

• Try to stay relaxed and smile. Make eye contact and establish a rapport – the panel will want to see that you can develop personal relationships and show empathy.

• You will be asked to sign forms at interview to tell us which area or course within nursing you would prefer to study. Please read them carefully as we use these to help us decide which course you will be offered.

If you bring someone with you for support, we recommend that you find a coffee shop nearby where they can wait in comfort as there may not be space for them to wait at the interview venue.

Anybody had two interviews at magee and know if the questions stay the same, I had an interview last year and don't know whether to just concentrate on the questions I was asked...
Hi. What sort of questions were you asked last year? I've only an idea of what as asked 2 years ago! I'd imagine they are along the same lines

I'm not sure how it went at all to be honest. It was very hard to read the faces of the two people who were interviewing me, they just sort of stared at me blankly while I was answering the questions, so it's very difficult to gauge whether I was saying the right things. I suppose that's the way for most interviews, but I came out not really knowing how I had done. Also, they were a lot less friendly than I thought they would be, I tried to strike up conversation with them when I went in but they weren't very engaging. They were running behind though at the time so maybe they were trying to get through everyone as quick as possible.
So yeah, I'm not holding my breath but I'm also not completely writing it off. I mentioned most of the points I was wanting to get across so it was okay that way I suppose.

I second everything you just said! Not engaging.. at all. I know I can't blame the interviewers and it sounds horrible but I really wish I had got two different people lol

Who did you have on your interview panel? Last year mine were very friendly and approachable. However I do agree they don't give anything away about whether or not your ticking their boxes!

They had about 7 different panels running that day so I wouldn't be surprised if it differs from one to the other. But I like I said, they were running behind on my day, so I wouldn't be surprised if that was why they were quite abrupt when I went in.
I had Wesley, who is apparently really lovely as a teacher - or so I have heard, and to be fair he was far more conversational and friendly than the woman I had.
It threw me at the start so my first answer was a bit jumbled but I got into the rhythm of things after.

You could only do your best so be happy with yourself no matter what. Who knows, I remember last year the man said to me they were running late but I'd still get my full 20mins so they seem to be pretty fair that way! I suppose it's a bit monotonous for them interviewing 1600 people as well as having the stresses of still teaching nursing students and coping with their usual jobs!

I have my UU interview soon and despite tearing my house apart I cannot find my GCSE results anywhere. It'll take me 10 days to order new certificates but by then the interview will have been and gone. I have my A level results and my BSc degree certificate, would that suffice - as I'm assuming they are general instructions sent to everyone - or will I be refused an interview on the day?

Try contacting uu and explaining your situation to them. If you have a levels and a degree then that alone show you will have gcses so hopefully they will be okay about it :-)

I don't suppose you know the correct email to contact? I just sent an email through to the registry office and apparently whoever manages that is on leave. The admissions contact is called clearing so not sure if it's the correct one, or do I contact the health and life sciences department directly? The way my work hours are at the moment I won't have time to contact them by phone.

I've thrown them an email at that address, hopefully it'll get through. Admissions was the one that got bounced back.
Thank you so much for your help!

I managed to get in touch and they said everything should be fine. I can do the interview without them but would have to produce them if I'm made an offer.

That's one less thing to worry about for you then! You can just concentrate on interview prep now
