Hiya, this thread is quite old now. If you'd like to ask a new question about Chemical Engineering interviews and/or Manchester, please click here to start a new discussion.

Hi,
I have a chemical engineering interview at Manchester Uni in a couple of days and I have a few questions. What building do you have to turn up to at the beginning of the day? The Mill as it's the departmental building or is there somewhere else you're needed to go to? What was the interview like and how did it go? Did they ask any difficult questions or anything like that?
Thanks

It was alright in the end, got an offer a couple of days after. Just general interview questions on why you want to do the course etc. They will ask you a Maths based but it isn't anything you shouldn't be able to do if you take A level Maths. Hope this helps

For the course the entry grades were AAA and my offer was for AAA also, even though my predicted are AAB (I didn't have a so good AS).

It was about 10 minutes or so, it was quite relaxed. The questions varied, my question was different to some other people I spoke to. Don't be worried about it, they just want to see that you approach the problem in a logical way and that you have an idea what you're doing, they talk you through the question also.

Sounds good, I hope you enjoy it. When did you send your application off, was it in mid October time?

Hey, i'm applying for ChemEng too and was wondering how the interview went and if you got a place. Mine is on the Nov 27th so I must be pretty late to the party. What questions did they ask?

Hi, sorry no-one replied to you but how did it go?! Was it quite relaxed or did they just bombard you with impossible questions?

Went well. Got asked one maths question which was fine and the chem eng questions were nothing too hard. I know a bit more than the average person about chem eng so i found it super easy. I would recommend you read whats in the first year of the course. I got my offer the week after but they should usually give it in the next three days, apparently the offer guy was on holiday.

I have just has my interview for chemical engineering a couple days ago. They start off with a 1 hour presentation about the course, mine was in the Alan Turing building. Then they take you on a campus tour for an hour and they provide lunch for another hour. After this they took us to a room where we waited to have our interviews.Questions:What/Why Chemical Engineering?What skills does a chemical engineer possess?Difference between chemistry and chemical engineering?Then they ask a technical question about chemistry and maths. Some people get harder questions but one thing the students in the 4th year told us was to spend as long as you can talking on the first questions so they don’t have enough time for the technical questions. Also, think out loud so even if you don’t know the answer for the technical question, just say what you are thinking so they can see how you work your way around to solve a problem.

You can’t really prepare for them. They just want to see how you can work through a problem you have never seen.

Should there be a new university admissions system that ditches predicted grades?

No, I think predicted grades should still be used to make offers (640)

Yes, I like the idea of applying to uni after I received my grades (PQA) (806)
42.2%
Yes, I like the idea of receiving offers only after I receive my grades (PQO) (378)

I think there is a better option than the ones suggested (let us know in the thread!) (86)
