I did the interview; the reps seemed pretty cool, they essentially just listened to your presentation in silence and took notes. question and conversation after the commencement of the 5-10 minute presentation of the portfolio. They made a short comment on the work. then they ask 3 questions: why you applied to the Slade, what your process is before starting a new piece of art, and in my case I never got the third question because they kinda forgot to ask amidst conversation. but they are probably amicable to everyone, so I have no idea how to gauge if I did well or not.
thank you this is really helpful! did they allowed you to speak for the full ten minutes, how long did they allow you for each for your answers?

So basically they let me speak without interruption and took notes throughout the portfolio presentation! at least in my case at least, but I'm sure its slightly different for everyone. and once I finished they asked those questions, and then asked if I had any questions. I had technical difficulties so I couldn't see their facial reactions throughout the presentation but you'll probably be able to gauge their reaction throughout it if your Microsoft teams is functioning normally, as mine was not. I strongly recommend you prepare a couple questions for the tutors because it shows you're interested in the course. I would also maybe recommend you add any new work you have in your portfolio presentation if you think its any good/fits thematically, although I believe you're only *required* to go over pieces you showed in the initial portfolio. Wishing you good luck!!!

I just did mine, they seemed pretty cold, they asked the set questions but didn't ask any other things about the work and their reactions seemed very flat and uninterested after i asked my questions they just said bye, did you have a similar experience?

Interesting. I really couldn't gage their reaction to be honest, but I didn't get cold vibes from them. They seemed friendly actually, however I read that as general politeness. It does seem totally possible you got interviewed by another set of people, seeing as there are 150 interviews in total and surely not the same two people will do all of them. They didn't really say anything about my work either besides thanking me for showing it. Don't read too deeply into it, we've all done our best at this point all we have left to do is wait, miserable as it is... Do you have any idea as to when the Slade generally releases decisions/sends an offer? I am an American student and my issue is national decisions day is on a particular day in the US, so I am hoping to hear from UK schools before then

annoyingly the link they sent me didn't work so we were both waiting for ten minutes before they sent me a new one, not my fault tho but i think they seemed a little rushed and frustrated. they said they should let us know by the end of the month but if it will be later they'll send an email to let us when we'll find out

In my interview they didn't mention those things. But I also HUGE technical difficulties too and they were complaining about having a lot, like a lot of issues over Microsoft teams in other interviews. I also needed to get sent a new link. And they couldn't see my face when I presented my work due to an issue with my device. And after, when they left, they said I was initially going to be the last person they saw for the day but they had to reschedule someone after me because of the horrible technical difficulties they were experiencing in that interview, so that is when they left me off and said goodbye... So don't worry too much, you're far from the only person that had issues with teams! Although I know how anxiety provoking it is given that this is something one hopes to go perfectly, life happens and this digital platform makes things anything but easy... And thank you for telling me when they might make their decision! I was too shy to ask that specific question haha.
