    So I've just applied for the Fast Track preparation for higher education course at Edge Hill to study Marketing. Because I am currently studying across seas my interview is not until April. Has anyone got/had an interview for the course? And do you know if having a later date for an interview will effect my chances of getting accepted into the course? (Earlier the interview more spaces available?)

    I had my interview in January 17
    And I got a place!
    If there wasn't any places left they wouldn't interview you I expect so I wouldn't worry to much.
    Good luck

    I've had an interview for a different course but we first went in to complete our test with a group of people who were having interviews for all different types of courses. they did say no one here is competing with each other for places. she then said it's just if you make the grade or not. So I really don't think having an interview later on will effect your chances at all, as long as you just smash the interview I reckon you'll be fine

    Yeah thats true actually, it would be pointless doing the interview if there was no place for me haha What was the interview like? Were the tests just basic knowledge or should i revise lots?

    Hey!
    Don't worry about your interview. I was really nervous and one of the lecturers came and was like, don't worry it's not as bad as you think. And it really wasn't.
    First off, you'll have the test.
    Basically you read a statement and answer questions about the statement.
    Best advise I can give you for that is, on the answer sheet look how many points it is for the answer. So if it says two points. Put down two opinions or references from the statement you just read. 4 points put down four. And so on.
    Then for the interview itself. It was more of a conversation. I had it one to one but other subjects went in a group. Just talking about goals and stuff/ why this course/and general info about yourself.
    It was like I was with one of the girl friends chatting over coffee. I know what it's like. My nerves were horrible too. But trust me, they're really nice, down to earth people. Just be yourself and be honest and you'll do fine!
    The women who took my interview actually completed the fast track and then her degree after. So they know what it's like
    And regarding places I know people who have interviews in may. So they'll be places still for sure.
    Hope this helps.
