Nothing past the A-level syllabus is required!

But do they allow for the fact that you may only have covered part of the syllabus? I mean, should I try and read about the bits I haven't studied yet?

It's not a straightforward question and answer session and it's certainly not like an exam. You don't need to know more than what you've covered - but they aren't looking for factual recall abilities. They will ask you about things which will be unfamiliar - they want to see how you deal with what they present. Don't worry - it's not like everyone else knows everything and you're thick (although that seems to be the state of mind that everyone is in before interviews)!

I know someone doing biology in Robinson - she's crazy, but really nice! Tests? I didn't have to do any.
