There are so many people applying to university these days that it is very difficult for an Admissions Tutor to interview any or all of you. Most of you will NOT be interviewed for a place at university. Even if you are invited to an 'Applicants' Day' you will generally find that the format is less formal and is more about selling the university to you - now that you've successfully got an offer.*
* Please note that an 'Applicants' Day' is for successful applicants (who have offers) and is not the same as an Open Day.
However, It is possible that you may be asked to interview. This is more likely if you are applying to:
Oxford, Cambridge, Medicine, Veterinary Science, Dentistry, Physiotherapy or a course that requires you to present a portfolio of your work (such as Design).
We will run an interview workshop for students in the Autumn Term and it is normal practice to provide a mock interview for any student applying for any of the courses listed above.
Always be prepared!
If you are asked to interview, and you do wish for support and guidance, then you should contact Mr Backwell or Doctor Simpson.
