    Thanks (: were there many that threw you off? I did the telephone interview last year and remember it being all competency based but this is my first video interview. Any tips on video interviews?
    I did the telephone interview last year too, I thought my interview last year went better than it did yesterday and I got rejected last year...

    Would agree with all those tips! Just be aware you only gave 15 seconds before the camera starts recording automatically and records for 2 minutes but you can press stop to end it earlier (unfortunately I had to use it)

    Did every question give a two minute window to answer?

    I'm sure you did better than you think I was also rejected after a telephone interview last year too but it was my first ever TC interview. Does that mean you only have 15 seconds to read the question? Are the questions fairly long?

    Yes there's a video of the grad recruitment team asking the question then there's a 15 second count-down before your camera turns on. The question is also in writing which helpfully stays on the screen throughout the recording. Hope it goes well!

    No problem!! Not getting my hopes up, it was my first one last year too!

    A video plays of the grad recruitment team reading out the question, but underneath the video the question is written out so in reality you have a few seconds before the count down begins! I found the questions quite long-winded in terms of the way they were phrased but it is clear what they are asking
