    I've got an interview at a college tomorrow, I'm hoping to use it as a warm up for the local college (long story) but I've never had one before so I don't know what to expect?

    I'm 19 and I've already done my A levels, I got ***** results so I'm going to do some more. When I went from yr 11 to yr 12, I stayed at the same school so I haven't had an interview like this before! What will they ask? It says on the letter it's an informal chat but does that mean I don't need to dress smart? Will they be looking for me to persuade them that I should go there?

    When I went to my college interview they asked what subjects I wanted to do, what I enjoy doing outside of school, what I see myself doing in the future and questions like that. If you are doing art they might want a folder of your art work to see what your ability is.

    Dress wise I wouldn't worry about dressing especially smart just make sure you don't look a scruff :p:
