Chemistry w/ preliminary year interview - Uni of Bristol Watch

    • Thread Starter

    I received an invitation to an interview for the foundation course at uni of Bristol. I've been away from school for a while and I hold international qualifications, which is probably why they asked me to attend an interview. However, I really don't know what to expect. In the description they mention it is to establish the level of background knowledge and academic ability.

    Has anyone done the foundation interview? Do they ask many subject-related questions?

    Any help is much appreciated

    If they're wanting to establish background knowledge and academic ability yes they will ask subject related questions. It may also be to assess whether you need to do the foundation year or can go straight onto the degree.

    Hey, do you think I would be eligible for this course? The website doesn't really give much away. I got DDC in Biology, Chemistry and German A-Level. I'm planning on resitting, but I've also been looking at foundation years and preliminary years to get into Chemistry.
