My acknowledgement email from York stated that given current circumstances, students will not be required to attend an interview. They said that instead, students will be asked to complete an online self-assessment form. Any ideas what this might be?

I believe York normally interview to check that candidates are aware of their problem based approach to learing and are suitable for this approach - keen on group work and so on. They are one of the few law schools to use PBL so I imagine they will use the assessment to check students suitablility for this learning style as well as their suitability generally for studying law

Ive got the same email from york. I understand what pbl is but is there an actual form to submit to them or is it just a self reflection thing?

Just a self assessment to make sure you think PBL is right for you!

Just copy and paste, I wouldn't do more than what they ask as it's just a confirmation that you personally think PBL is a good fit for you.

Not sure what you’re asking here. If you’ve been asked to complete the self assessment just read the instructions properly - you do not need to write your answers, it’s just an opportunity for you to get a feel for PBL.

If you feel that PBL is right for you then send them an email with the statement they ask you to write - no more, no less. It’s really simple.

No, read the instructions carefully. Just send them what they ask for, which is the statement they give you to copy and paste in the email.
