Hi Angela,

That is a very good question.

1) If you are offered an interview for your 2nd and 3rd choice, it doesn't mean you have failed the first choice. Nothing is confirmed as long as the results are not out yet. You cannot assume that you've failed a particular course unless it requires an interview but you're not called for the interview. In other words, you need to wait for May 21 when the official results are released. So if you did well in your 2nd and 3rd interview but the university in your first choice accepts you, this means you will get the first choice. So your interview for 2nd and 3rd choice is of no use.

2) Failing to attend the interview means you automatically cannot get the 2nd and 3rd choice already. We suggest you go for the interview to be safe. If lets say, you failed your first choice, you will only find out when the results are out. If you also didn't attend interview for 2nd and 3rd choice, you definitely will not get it. So 1st, 2nd, 3rd choice is out the window. It's better to be safe and attend the interviews (which might go to waste if you get first choice) but will be worth it. At least if you didn't get first choice but did well in your interview, you will get your 2nd choice.

Hope this helps. Feel free to ask if you have any more queries :) Good luck!

*Also if I didn’t attend the interview, will they blacklist me ? Will they still consider giving me my first choice course ?
