UNIVERSITY INTERVIEW SURPRISES
An interview allows #Admission
to look beyond formal things like tests’ scores, assess one’s personality and suggest whether or not this further graduate can succeed on the job market and hence contribute to university’s reputation. Much like a #job
interview, it shall show bold how the #university
will benefit from taking you on board.
is the only possibility for Admission to check your stress-sustainability which is demanded from international students to succeed. This is why some interviews include “questionsults” and stress-tests.
A good #technique
to overcome nerves during an interview is imaging the interviewer is an old friend of yours. He’s asking questions about your life and you are keen to share with pleasure. That works perfect with regular #questions
. But be aware and prepared for surprising pop-ups!
Remember the aim of such awkward questions is not to crack you and get the truth but rather to put you in a compromising situation and see how you deal with it. This is a quite common mental technique widely used to assess one’s ability of operating under pressure. Not your answer itself but your general #reaction
and the manner of your reply are what matters.
