    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at University of Edinburgh (Edinburgh, Scotland).

    Interview

    Interview with 10 questions including a few scenario questions, two interviewers. They read the questions off a sheet of paper and made notes on your response. The format of the interview puts a surprising amount of pressure on you. Spend your time practicing keeping cool under pressure, plan a few back up answers to use when you don't know how to answer a question. If you can, organise a practice interview with mycareerhub
