    Congratulations . I'd say casual professional for the interview but I dunno, have you asked your classmates who are going to interviews?


    P.S.

    Sorry for the horrible grammar

    That's impressive. If it helps though, my sibling went to theirs in a suit although they did say that almost everyone were wearing jeans during that day but I think that was enrolment day not interviews.

    Is it during a school day by any chance?

    Edit:

    Btw, are you talking about FE colleges or Uni colleges?

    That would be fine to wear as it's kind of formal and informal if that makes any sense. It also shows that you have a personality as it's sometimes express within what people wear (which is something they look for in colleges). However, you should go on the colleges website and research what type of clothes students would have to wear everyday. E.g. some schools allow you to wear your own clothes and others require you to wear smart clothes. Wear what they would require on a daily basis as it would make an impression as it shows you are willing to learn with the best of your ability.

    Without sounding braggy, I would say that I'm quite confident and cool under pressure, 1 piece of advice I can offer is that if you don't know how to answer a question, just keep on talking, as long as it's not utter rubbish atlest you avoid awkward silences......
