has anyone emailed to have their interview rescheduled? I sent an email but haven’t received a reply. In one of the attachments they stated that you should email them before 4:30 on 8th April so I hope that means I can still reschedule mine since I emailed them last week :/

Are you sure you emailed the right address? You might want to double check just incase
If you emailed last week I can't see why they wouldn't let you reschedule whenever they reply

yes I definitely emailed the right address. I emailed the person who sent out the interview dates a couple days back and he replied saying that his team are still working on replying to people + rescheduling so it may take some time for me to receive a reply. cant help but feel a teeny bit concerned that it may not get rescheduled lol

Oh well at least you've got some acknowledgement! Do you think it would be a big problem if they can't reschedule? You might want to plan just incase. They should be able to though since you did email before their deadline.
Is yours currently scheduled for quite early on?

I have an (internal) art exam which lasts the whole school day on both the 29th and 30th of april, and I’ve been given an interview date of the 30th. I’m not too worried though since my art teacher did say that if we don’t get to finish on the 2 allocated days we’re still allowed to complete it in the following few lessons

Ahh ok. I guess it would be much easier if it is moved then.
Mines on the 27th

there isn’t a limit, they just give it to however many people deserve it. if I’m not mistaken it’s usually around 350 but in 2017 there was a record number of 425

I'm practicing, basically. I'm asking someone to give me some practice questions as well as going through my powerpoint. What are you doing?

I guess basically the same as you, but cos I'm halfway through my exams I'm having to revise a lot more for them than the interview, so I'll try to prioritise practice questions. Where did you get your practice questions from?
