One-to-One Interview Practice

Our university interview practice sessions are subject specific and are designed to improve all aspects of your performance both in the “personal” and in the “technical” interview. Each interview practice will be tailored depending on the course and the university you are applying to.

Develop Core Skills

Our goal is to improve your analysis of complex questions and the communication of your thoughts in a clear and logical manner. The interview practice will not only improve your subject knowledge (beyond the bounds of your sixth form syllabus) but also develop core skills that university admissions tutors are looking for: clear analysis, logical thinking, strong communication, creativity and lateral thinking.

Expert Feedback

Receive detailed and constructive feedback (both oral and written) at the end of each interview. This will provide you with a clear roadmap on the key areas of weakness and development that you need to focus on.

Example questions that came up this year for:

In a world where English is a global language, why learn French?
I’m having trouble with the meaning of three words: Lie, Deceive, Mislead. They seem to mean something a bit similar, but not exactly the same. Help me to sort them out from each other.
In what ways do you think that writing for children is different to writing for adults?
Is violence always political? Does ‘political’ mean something different in different contexts?
Why do some habitats support higher biodiversity than others?
If the punishment for parking on double yellow lines were death, and therefore nobody did it, would that be a just and effective law?
A monochromatic beam of red light with wavelength 700nm (in air) passes through a cubic glass block with refractive index 1.6. The angle of incidence between the light beam and the block is 20 degrees. What will be the wavelength of the beam once it is back in the air again, having passed through the block?
In theory, it is possible to turn a corner in an aeroplane without banking. The turn is created using the rudder and the ailerons are used to keep the wings in a horizontal plane. Supposing you were in a jet airliner travelling at 900 kilometres per hour and the pilot attempts to initiate a small turn in this way. What would be the effect on the drink on the little table in front of you?
