    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Arcadia.

    Interview

    Initially I had an online maths assessment where you had to complete approximately 14 questions in 20 minutes which was simple enough. There were no questions that were extremely tricky, just questions about percentages etc. Then I had to complete a video interview which involved answering questions in a set time period whilst being recorded. So for instance, I had 30 seconds to read the question and then I had a minute to answer the question. There were only about seven questions in total.
