    the interview has a question :
    give something u did that didn't go to plan
    i cant think of anything! could anyone help on things i could talk about?

    Understand what its asking. its asking how you cope with changing situations, with an emphasis on adaptability, initiative and. common sense. they wnat an instance where something didnt turn out as you were expecting amd then for you to explain how you dealt with it i.e you handled the situation and managed a good outcome.
    They wnat to know if you can cope with the unexpected as you are likely to meet thos situations in the job and they dont wnat someone who has a nervous breakdown or lacks common sense. Can you be the solution rather than the problem?

    It could be anything, it doesnt have to be work related, it could be your personal / school life/ sport/ exams/family life.
