    Hey!
    I have a Computer Science interview day booked. For anyone that has attended the day in the past, what kind of things did they ask you in your 20 minute interview? Did they ask you to do any questions or anything?

    Sorry not to answer your question but I'm applying for the same course and am trying to book my interview (after receiving the letter) but it's saying my UCAS number I'm putting in is wrong (I've been using my personal UCAS ID as it's the only number I have). What number did you put in?

    My UCL letter contained a number, which is called your application number. It should begin with 09. The number is about 3 paragraphs down.

    Okay thanks, unfortunately I haven't been able to find the number, my interview letter does not contain it and I haven't received any other letters from UCL so I'm going to make contact with the university and try solving my problem.

    They just asked me why I wanted to do computer science and some general questions about my personal statement. I think they didn't ask me any problem solving questions because I'd done my A2's by that time and was on a gap year. I heard from other people that they asked them one/two but they weren't difficult.
    The interview/open day is really for them to sell the university to you and for you to ask any questions.

    it went smoothly ... i got interviewed by two persons... i dont know why... they asked me 2 logical and 2 maths questions which i found straight forward. He asked me why i chose to study CS, What I would expect... But they didnt ask me anything about my personal statement... At the end he asked me whether UCL is a placeholder or not o.O i just said noooo its definitely one of my choices:p:

    UCL should give you an automated e-mail confirming your open day visit unless you checked the box which said you didn't want a confirmation e-mail....

    they should start dishing out offers after the 11th, which is the last interview date. there are only 60 places, so they want to cull the crap first before they start making offers.

    Hmm, I'd say if you don't hear back in the next week or so, send them an e-mail asking about the status of your application with them. I had my interview in November, and then had an offer in December. Is UCL your first choice?
