    Meh, it's quite hard to be anything other than robotic over a phone, a massive part of communication doesn't get through to the other person, body language and all that. But yeah, if you were giving answers that showed you knew what you were talking about, then that's pretty much all you can do

    .14/20 (still trying to figure out what this is when translated to british qualifications).
    Do you have plans?
    .Yes
    Grad Scheme?
    .Yes, I know it's incredibly hard but we do not have this sort of programs in the countries where I've lived so I'm definitely applying to a couple grad schemes in the UK. One in particular is an absolute dream for me.
    Post Grad Study?
    .Yes, I'll be starting a master's in Madrid in september and I'll finish it in 2015.
    Job Applications?
    Already have a job in Madrid, but it does not fulfill my expectations of what I want to do, therefore I'll be leaving it to pursue my master's.
