    Hi there,
    I just did my entrance exam at HWSF for Biology and English.
    Biology was like a typical paper with data-graphs which needed analysing (that sort of thing).
    English on the other hand was this unseen poem: Amoretti XXX: My Love is like to ice, and I to fire by Edmund Spenser
    And I was gobsmacked because I was totally confused about it.
    In the end I scored 491 marks (the cut off for an interview was 381).
    And now I have an interview next saturday on Biology but I'm trying to change it to English.
    What sort of questions do they ask you?
    It would be great if you can help.
    Thanks

    If you did worse on English, why not stick with biology

    I find it easier to talk about English than Bio to be honest. And I looked up the poem and actually understood it.

    I also did English for the entrance exam along with Chemistry and I'm doing an interview for English. I got a different poem for English (probably because I had to come on the reserve date), 'Death Be Not Proud' by John Donne.
    I'm not sure but I think the interview questions will probably just be about our interests in the subject and around any extra knowledge we have on the subject.
    What time are you going for the interview? I'm going on 13/02/17 at 10am
