    I have been invited for an interview at Reading university for the Chemistry course, I am slightly worried as I do not know what the format is and the sort of questions they will be asking. Has anyone been for an interview yet or is due to go and has any good advice as to how to prep for it. thanks

    Talked about personal statement for a while.
    He asked what I liked doing outside of college.
    Then asked me to explain some of the chemistry I knew, so I talked about benzene and he asked me about the structure and the substitution reaction.
    Yes it was great, got an offer three days later

    Thanks so much for the feedback - feel a little calmer now, but well done getting an offer - what grades are they asking for ?
