    So I was curious what I'd have to take to my interviews. I'll be starting uni in September 2017, but I'm just curious about why I'll need. I guess I'll need my GCSE and A-Level certificates, and maybe my CV?

    I want to have it all organised in a folder, can you holepunch your grade certificates?

    Unless a university specifically requires any of that, I doubt you'll need it - your GCSE and A level grades are provided to them via UCAS, so there's no need for them to see certificates unless they explicitly say that they need it (Oxbridge might, but I've never heard of another uni asking for them). They also won't expect a CV unless there are extraordinary circumstances; the personal statement negates the need for a CV.

    For most uni interviews, you likely won't need anything. I just took a blank notebook (in case I needed it during the interview, but I didn't) and my personal statement, to read over before it started.

    You'll be told exactly what you need in plenty of time once you've applied, no need to stress. Universities want to give you a fair shot, not trip you up because you didn't psychically know what was needed.

    Hi HarryEd9899,

    As Peterhouse Admissions said you will be told exactly what official paperwork you need to bring. But please make sure you do NOT punch holes on any original certificates. If it's a photocopy then fine, but any official documentation should stay whole. Use plastic pockets to slide them in and they will stay clean as well this way.

    Why not read through this blog to get an idea of what to expect during an Interview?

    Hope this helps, and don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions!
