    So, many universities insist that there isn't a specific dress code for interviews. But what did you wear?

    My dress code was smart casual, wore smartish black jeans and a blue shirt.

    My mate at the same uni but different course wore more casual while others wore smart suits at the same interview. He still got an offer.

    What about you?

    What course/university are you being interviewed for?

    What is appropriate for one course may not be necessary for another. E.g. medics do need to be reasonably smartly turned out.

    If it's Oxbridge they genuinely don't care.

    If it's anywhere else then an interview is basically a chance to say hi and you are pretty much guaranteed an Offer. (Even at Imperial.)

    Wear whatever you are comfortable wearing.
