Careers interviews for year 13

Not many folks will realise this but a number of our most able year 13s have been doing mock interviews in preparation for the real university interviews for the most highly competitive subjects – medicine, Oxbridge, Ivy League.

I thought we’d open a comment box here about the process so that if anyone has anything to say it could be shared. If you’re either a professional with a role in interviewing and recruitment (whether or not you were able to take part as a panellist in our mock interviews), or a parent who went through these type of interviews yourself and can recollect the experience to comment on it, or most of all if you’re one of the students who’ve been through our seminars and mock interviews – please leave a comment reply below sharing your thoughts about this process and how students in the future need to best prepare for it.

Interview training – year 13s

If you’re in year 13 andĀ either already have an interview date for one or more universities, OR if you know the unis you’ve applied to have interviews and you hope you receive an invite shortly –

It’s really important you get some help in good time to prepare you for that.

You need to both have some training (see Mr. Drennan) and preferably a formal mock interview with a panel. We’ll be organising panels soon – please let your tutor know if you want to be interviewed. Meanwhile, if you have an urgent need, come and see Mr. Drennan ASAP.
