Luke told the Free Press: “I applied to Christ’s College to study Law, and was pleasantly surprised by the interview process.

“I was expecting it to be rather tense. However it was not like that. I met with students applying for various courses, all in a similar situation to myself which helped me relax.

“I was more than overjoyed when I found out.”

Alex said: “I applied to Trinity College to study law 
because of its architecture and prestige, and also because I’d written an essay for a prize at that particular college.

“The interview process was a lot more relaxed and friendly than I was expecting, and not in line with some of the stories of other peoples’ experiences; I just sat with my two interviewers on sofas and chairs and discussed a legal scenario for about half an hour.

“It’s great to have been offered a place and to have friends who received offers as well. Now I’ve just got to get the grades.”
