    my interview was also on the 25th. it went well and i got an offer..........funny considering it was a last minute decision to go in the first place...... without any preparation:cool:. literally everyone started taking out these books of notes and then there was me. you just need to show enthusiasm, know what chemical engineering is, be ready answer any questions from your personal statement, why you want to do Chem Eng etc........also have VERY GOOD predicted grades.......although the technical questions were a little tough and requires some thinking.

    I see are the questions asked within the A levels syllabus? Do we have to learn the concepts of the 4 laws of thermodynamics? And should I revise on my a levels? Thanks and sorry for bombarding so many questions.this interview is really important to me cuz it's my first choice

    Everyone's questions were different but they were mostly simple things. They asked me 2 chem 1 phys and 1 maths questions that consisted of 1 sentence answers. Yeah they were a level and probs not about thermodynamics but I would learn the laws just to be safe. The most important thing they look for is understanding and enthusiasm for chemeng
