Hey guys, just got back from the scholarship interview. For those of you having yours tomorrow, and if you got the same interviewer (there were 2 different sessions going on) as me:

Prepare for all common interview questions!

I mean it. Think 'tell me more about yourself' and 'what do you think is your greatest strength' and things like that. It was a very, very typical interview.

On a side note, the interviewer was really friendly.

Change unis? Why so?
They don't have a list of preferred unis when we apply right?

Just got back from my interview too. I applied for Law, with conditional offers from UCL and Manchester. My interview session was focused very heavily on my editorial experience and what ideas I had in mind for Astro's publications...the interviewer sort of tried to discuss with me the merits of the ideas I mentioned so I thought that was an interesting session.

They did have a list of unis btw, but I think they're flexible with it :

The one that I wanted is in the list, whereas the one that they preferred I went to isn't. Which interviewer did you get?

Yeah, it was just her - I think that's how it was for everyone haha. I suppose we'll hear in a few days or next week if we're in for the next stage.
