    Hi there,
    I'm not sure if this is in the right forum, but I've been looking into some unis and noticed that some interview while others don't. I was just wondering what the pros and cons of this are for the applicant; on the surface, it seems that not having to make my way to an interview would be beneficial, but I'm not sure if I'm missing something? Should this have any impact on where I decide to apply?
    Many thanks

    For most courses at most universities the interview is not particularly onerous and being invited to one is usually just a precursor to a guaranteed offer.

    The main difference is for Oxbridge and also for medicine where they are an important part of the admissions process.

    Which course are you specifically considering?

    I'll be applying to study physics; I'm mostly looking at universities with ~ A*AA entry requirements, although I'm not sure it makes any difference.

    So apart from Oxbridge a physics interview is nothing to worry about
