    Hi all,

    I have had several offers for interviews at various sixth form colleges that I have applied for. I was wondering what sort of stuff will I need to wear, what sort of questions I will be asked, and ideas of questions to ask the interviewer.

    Thank you

    i) wear a smart outfit; like an office worker ?

    ii) they will ask... why did you choose X College ... why did you choose Y course...

    iii) ask them about positive aspects of the their course, their students etc....

    good luck !

    smart clothes, or your current school uniform if they say you can wear it. Typical questions they might ask:
    why this sixth form?
    why these subjects?
    what is your favourite subject?
    what do you want to do in the future?
    why should we choose you?
    extracurricular stuff and leadership qualities

    I got asked what book I was currently reading, who my role model is and be prepared for the interviewer to ask you about your personal statement - if you have to write one

    you could ask about UCAS support they offer, oxbridge, if they have anything specific to help you with the career you want to go into e.g. if you choose medicine, do they have a medvet society, mock interviews, teachers who can give you support through the admissions process??
