I wasn't too fussed about Durham colleges so my main criteria was just aesthetic appeal - and Castle (University) clearly won. What about you?

Haha, yeah same to be honest. I chose Cuths as I liked the location of it being at the end of the Bailey so the walk to the earth sciences department is a nice one, yet not too long. Apparently has the cheapest pint too

I didn't apply to imperial, but it will most likely come soon as interviews all tend to be about the same time.

I haven’t had one yet either. I’m pretty sure that I read that they interview anyone likely to meet the grades so fingers crossed they’ll be sent out soon 🤞

Has anyone got any idea what the interview questions for non-Oxbridge universities are like-- I have an interview in 3 weeks but don't really know what type of questions they will ask.

For Manchester? It's very likely that the interview isn't going to be highly selective, it'll just be a chance to chat etc, shows you have a genuine interest etc. They'll probably ask standard questions like "Why Manchester?", "Why Geology" etc. If you did Geology A-Level they may ask you a few geology questions, like describe the formation of x formation etc.

Ofc, this information is just what I've gathered on TSR, so please take this with a pinch of salt, and you could probs find very similar answers on past threads like this Good luck
