    I had one. I didn't prepare for it, and I got an OPA. Just think about what makes History so fascinating for you

    Oh ok, I’m really nervous for it do you have to go into detail on what parts of history you like? I don’t really know what sort of stuff they’d ask for a history interview.

    Think of it more as a discussion with a lecturer, rather than an interview. Also they used stuff from my personal statement to initiate discussions.

    It says that there’ll be a lecture and a seminar, does that mean that they’ll watch how we interact?? I’m really nervous about the seminar part because I don’t fully understand what we’re doing.
