Manchester theoretical physics interview Watch
My son had an interview yesterday for Physics (not theoretical). It was very informal- they asked him about his sixth form college. They asked him "Why Manchester?" and "What would he bring to Manchester?" Apparently a duvet and a kettle is not an appropriate answer. He talked about his extra curricular stuff. Then he was given a problem to work out on the whiteboard- the tutor told him it was a problem that he might get in week 6 of the first year. He had to talk his thinking out loud- I think it was about circular motion and dynamics. And the tutor prompted him at various points- so it was not high pressure. My son seemed to think that everyone who has an interview gets an offer. So I don't think it's a high pressure interview like an Oxbridge interview. He heard that some tutors didn't even ask any physics questions. My son was given an offer by the time he came home. So don't worry! I hope it goes well.
I'll look forward to it!
