    It's standard practice on TSR, but in any case think about it for a minute. Giving specific advice to someone can a) disadvantage the person giving the help because they might be risking their place, and b ) unfairly give an advantage to the recipient.

    Of course it's fine to discuss dress code (usually you should simply wear whatever you feel comfortable in - some will wear suits, most won't), or general points about the experience, but specifics about current questions is not a good idea (or permitted).

    TSR puts up reminders at various times during the year - but yes it should probably be a sticky on the forums.

    Edit to add: here's the standing policy in the site "small print" (although it is reiterated and publicised during the year) - http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/faq....lines_detailed
    "No cheating! TSR is not here to help anyone gain an unfair advantage over others in interviews, academic work or similar."

    By the way, for most unis (not Oxbridge, or for medicine, etc) having an interview means an offer is extremely likely.

    So, congratulations.

    PS.
