    Depends on the interview and what kind of thing they're going to ask, what did you apply for?

    I applied for Computer Science so this response will be tailored to that.

    If they're going to ask technical questions then maybe make sure you're very secure on any AS material in subjects like maths and computer science. They'll likely give you a problem to solve though so just try and work on general problem solving, you can probably find some nice example questions online.

    More typical interview questions will probably concern your personal statement, so make sure you can talk a lot about the things you put in there. Make sure you have examples of things you've done too. Have a clear reason in your head as to why you've chosen both that university and that course and be ready to discuss it.

    Most of all just try to relax. As long as you're comfortable with everything in your personal statement and are enthusiastic about your course then you should be absolutely fine
