If they're interviewing you for the second time then they definitely have doubts on your application. It will be a good start to prepare more convincing answers (just in case they ask you the same questions as in your 1st interview) and also make sure what you say don't contradict what you said in the first interview

It is better you post the AR refusal letter so we can see the exact reason in detail

If you need some concrete advice regarding AR then I suggest you post the entire content of the letter.

She asked me about ranking of other Universities and also the name of Universities in other countries and what are the differences
She also asked me about my future plan and why I chose to study in Uk as compared to my home country


What do you think ? We talked for about 50 minuets. I’m very stressed :shock:

Hi Everyone!

This is my timeline ( standard route)

Biometrics + Interview: 26th July

No communication from UKVI till now. Expecting to get the Visa outcome by next week.

After reading about a few genuine student interview outcomes in this forum, I have been overthinking about my interview. For example, when asked- did you apply to any other universities? I answered- No, because this is the only University which offers a course on 'XYZ'. Also, because a professor ( of this XYZ subject) of mine from my previous college had recommended me this particular university in UK as its the best.

Further, when asked about my future plans, i told the official that- I would come back to my home country and work in the 'XYZ' sector as a researcher or a consultant. Btw I also told them in the beginning that i have been working in this 'XYZ' sector for the past 2 years in my home country.

Btw, I have also scored a part scholarship from the university so does that make my visa application stronger? Because I am sure the visa officials also know that scholarship is provided to only credible students. I maybe wrong here though.

Please let me know what you guys think of the same! Thanks in advance!

What do you think ? We talked for about 50 minuets. I’m very stressed :shock:
1. Ranking of other universities: It is okay if you don't know the exact position of each university but at least you should be able to estimate the academic reputation of each university you're applying to
2. Name of universities you applied to and their differences: If you really applied to other universities it would be easy to know the differences; courses, teaching style, facilities, etc
3. Future plan and why you choose the UK: really, I don't think should be hard to answer

Most of us got asked these same questions, these questions are not difficult it just depends on how you answered them.
Cheer up, all the best

1- I talked about queens marry university of London and University of Chester. I told here that I do not the exact ranking of queen marry but I believe it it is in the first twenty, while University of Chester ranking is 77 according to guardian. However, I preferred chester because the course is more affordable ( compared the fees) and offer an international scholarship once receive the offer. Also this course has high reputation and good teaching methods based on my friend recommendation who took the course two years ago. She Asked me about the ranking of the specific course and I told her that I do not know exactly :?

What do you think about my answer ?
