I have an interview at royal holloway on a date of my choice. The day is called an applicant day but I'm a bit unsure what to say, what sort of questions will be asked and on the email it says 'informal' which came as a surprise? I really want to get an offer so any ideas? My course is mathematical sciences by the way.
thanks

As someone who had an interview for Maths and Physics last year (it was the same as described here: informal applicant day), the Maths portion of the interview just consisted of me being asked to do some simple differentiation (product rule I think) and draw a few simple graphs.
I got most of the questions right, but made a few really silly mistakes with things like signs.
Overall, it was pretty relaxed and seemed mainly just to check that you could do basic maths, not really something you have to really revise for or anything (although obviously get more interview stories, mine may be abnormal or something)
