    I've not yet done all my GCSEs only English lit, but i have a college interview next week for me attending that college after high school, i'm nervous, what do i need to take with me, or what to say..

    For mine, I didn't take anything as my high school already gave th my predict GCSE results. You don't need to be worried. They're not usually formal interviews

    I don't think you have to take anything, possibly any key certification you'd like to show?
    I assume the questions will be orientated around the subjects you wish to study!
    I'd prepare by reading the 'Course Overview' for each of the subjects, so you know exactly what's going, moreover I'd find what prospects those subject combinations hold, so you can express interest into fields and elaborate how the college could facilitate that

    Don;t stress they will accept you if you have the grades
    Interviews are just a formality

    If they haven't asked you to bring anything then you should be all ok. College interviews (and even 6th form) are usually fairly informal. Wear something semi smart and just relax. itll most likely be more of a discussion then an interview. They'll ask about why you want to attend their college, why you're applying to the courses you are, what you do outside of school and maybe how you feel about college life and school life currently.

    you'll be fine, most college interviews are just a chance for the tutor to get to know you as a student before probably offering you a place.
