It was alright, probably could’ve said a lot more for the scenario. Aston isn’t my firm choice nor my insurance so I don’t really care much about it. Aston too far from home 😭😭😁

City is my firm and Hertfordshire is my insurance. It’s the closest 2 unis from where I live 😭😭😭
Ohhh I see.

In terms of Plymouth interview, it’s pretty chill, just why Optom and why Plymouth mainly. Most people who have applied receive an offer ( i got a reduced offer lol)
Yes yeah mine was called an “offer” too, but it said it was subject to passing an interview so idk. The interviewer said it was really informal and that there isn’t a pass or fail so idk lmao

Ive already got an offer from them before even doing my interview which is weird - i think most people got it this way round aswell


I only just got the offer from Aston, only a few min ago.

Ohh tbh i dont want it to be my firm or insurance choice so im not too worried, is there a sceanrio question though?

No clue, haven’t heard much about the interviews at Plymouth. However I found this on the website:

Top tips for interview:

Have a good think about the reasons you wish to study with us and why you wish to follow this career path.

Consider how you will manage the demands of studying for this degree and how you will overcome them.

Take a detailed look at the University of Plymouth’s website course page, as well as the professional and regulatory body websites for optometrists, which will provide you with details and links for preparing your application and how to succeed in your interview.

It’s wasn’t bad. It’s was ok I really didn’t say quite a lot finished around 10-11 min. The scenario was meh tho, I barely said much probably 2 things for each question 😭😭😭I genuinely thought I wouldn’t get an offer.

For my city has given me the lowest grades so I’m keeping that as my insurance. It was always going to be my insurance so I’m happy about that!

For Aston it was alright. I probably could’ve said a lot more but I’ve done it can’t really do much about it.
