Not really no

Do lots of reading around your subject!!

Interview

no

Language grammar tests

no

2 pieces for each language

no

no

they were quite informal really but some tough questions

Something smart, but that I felt comfortable in - lots of people didn't wear smart clothes but I felt I should, didn't want to be too smart though.

Impressions

Looked really pretty although haven't seen it properly yet

Final stage

Waiting was the worst part!

I got a letter explaining that I had a place and then further information to send back to the college

Looking back
