    Hi guys, first of all congratulations to all of you who were already accepted!!! I'm applying for the Poitiers campus and my interview is 10 days and I'm freaking out :eek: I have a few questions I hope someone might be able to answer:

    1. Did you make any mistakes with your French, and if so, we're they nice or comprehensive about it?

    2. Is anyone else applying for/already got the Boutmy scholarship?

    Good of luck y'all!

    Hi! Don't worry about making gramatical errors, as long as you get your point accros you'll be fine. Don't stress too much at the interview, remain calm and it'll go well
    As for the scholarship I'm not applying because I'm an eu student..

    Hey there! 😊

    For my euro-Africa interview I had to present an article in French about Africa's journey to democracy which completely shocked me at first as I totally didn't expect a FRENCH article but an English one. You can imagine my horror haha, for the first few minutes of preparation I literally sat there, looked at the paper and cursed in my head! 😅

    HOWEVER, I managed to get a grip and calm down, upon reading the article, I realised it was rather understandable and thus my subsequent planning went quite smoothly.

    During the actual presentation, since French is my third language, of course I stuttered at certain points and I remember repeating the word "unanimité" 4 times in a row because I wasn't sure how the word ended! The trick is, in retrospect, to stay as calm as you can, apologize firmly (I just paused and said "désolée, je vais essayé encore une fois.") and keep moving forward! A few stumbles in the beginning will not affect your overall performance !

    After my presentation, the discussion of the article/ debate was held in English, so you're gonna be fine. 😄 haha one of my 2 interviewers who was an alumnus stumbled over the word "authentic" in English as well and apologized haha, so there you go , making mistakes is a human thing to do!

    Finally, as I'm from Singapore, I applied for the bout my scholarship but haven't heard anything about that yet, despite being admitted. I heard it takes a lot longer for them to come to a decision on that so breathe and have patience.

    Hope this response wasn't too annoyingly long and all the best for the interview ! Any other questions just shoot them here Where are you btw?

    No problem Tatimar98, believe in yourself and GO FOR IT!

    Hi Jean-PaulSartre, there is no specific method to analyse. You should go to the sciences po website and scrutinise the oral interview page, they give very detailed guidance. Coherence, pithiness are the key. Make sure they can follow you easily.

    Had my interview yesterday, what I can tell you is the article analysis part was not as difficult as I expected. It could have just been my case but my article was fairly short and I had more than enough time to prepare. They let you take notes and use them in the interview. What I do recommend is be prepared to answer in depth follow up questions; they might ask these questions with their own personal stance going against your own but just remain confident and be very clear and precise

    Cool, I heard they want us to make arguments and prove what we say.

    Last question: what to wear???
    I thought about putting on neat clothes, but i'm afraid a full suit would be too much.

    That's a good question, definitely wear a full suit, absolutely no doubt. Everyone I interviewed with was wearing a full suit.

    I had my interview yesterday. I don't really feel confident about it, to be honest. They always made me feel that my answer is wrong, but I think I was confident. The only question that surprised me was about my ability to learn in French. They asked me in French and I didn't know some words because I'm at level A2...(that's why I applied for the programme with intensive french classes)

    And you guys, what did you think after finishing the interview?

    I felt fairly confident, although I definitely felt at times there was some disagreement with a couple of my answers. That being said I would highly doubt they would let anyone off so easy without challenging the answers they provided. I think the pressure of disagreement is part of the interview process.
