    1. I got a letter from the University it said we have considered you application and we are pleased to say we intend to offer you a place on the course. Does this mean they sat down and looked at all my application and they think I'm good enough for them?

    2 They also said before I get an offer I have to go to an open day, whats the point ofthat? Why not give me an offer?

    3. From another department I also got invited for an open day but in the open day( it said) I would get an informal interview , in the other letter it didn't say anything about an interview. Will there be an interview?

    1) Yes.

    2) Just to check you're interested in them, and so that you can have a look around

    3) Probably.

    Quite a few universities give offers only to people who attend an open day they are invited to. It is a confirmation, to them, of your commitment. If you don't go to the open day you won't get the offer.

    If a university has told you about an open day twice, omitting mention of the interview in one letter but mentioning it in another, you can expect an interview.

    Ah! Departments within universities all run their own ship. The methods and policies used by physics don't necessarily apply to CS.
