    Hi! I had an interview in November and i now have an offer so I can help
    Wear whatever you want. Some people turned up in suits some turned up in just jeans so it doesn't really matter as the process is pretty casual but I would wear something smart just incase. They do give you a maths question on the spot yes but don't panic. They asked me 2. One was on normal integration then he changed the question a bit so it was university level and I couldn't solve it but I talked about different ideas on how to and thats what they are looking for anyway. Just look over C1,C2, FP1 stuff a few days before just incase. They like to ask proofs! Other questions of mine included some stuff i mentioned on my personal statement so I would re-read to be familiar with what they could ask. They also asked what I wanted to gain from this degree, why this uni and which part of maths is ur fav, ie core, mechanics etc... That was pretty much it, they are really nice and friendly, you will get to talk to some lecturers and students before so don't worry about it and just be yourself. It only lasts 15 mins anyway
    Good luck!!!

    Hiya, I basically listed everything you pretty much need to know really. You will get given a maths question so read up on c1, c2 and fp1 but other than that they ask different questions to different people. Read up on your personal statement as well. I play the piano and mentioned similarities between music and maths in my ps so my interviewer brought it up. It was very casual for me. There were other interviews going on at the same time in the same room so it is noisy, not just a one on one in an office or anything like that. Be relaxed and good luck for your interview!

    It's Manchester, not exactly Oxbridge. I doubt the questions will be too difficult.
