    Oh ok, for some reason I was thinking they would ask really difficult questions haha so that's reassuring then, thank you!! Is Falmouth your top choice and also how long did the interview last for?

    Well since Falmouth is my first choice I was super nervous and I couldn't answer a lot of the questions because of it haha! I was so sure that I had completely ruined my chances of getting an offer😅But I'm so relieved now - just need to get the A-Levels haha
    They asked:
    Why Falmouth?
    Why study Photography?
    What books have you read about photographic criticism?
    Favourite Photographers?
    Any photographic exhibitions that you have recently visited?
    And then they make you say which picture out of your portfolio you like the least/best and why!
    Hope this helps ☺️
