    If you feel prepared for it, it should be no problem. Just stay calm and be yourself. A couple of bits of advice that work for me are to have solid ideas of what you would say to answer certain questions, but don't memorise the answers. I always think it comes across pretty stilted if you just recite some passage that you've spent weeks learning. It always sounds better if it comes across as a conversational answer rather than some rehearsed prose. Also, be enthusiastic. If you sound interested in what you're going to be doing it really comes across well. I'd say it might even be more important than the answers you give. Have some questions you want to ask too, if you don't have any when asked you can come across disinterested.

    Hope this helps!

    Yes just be really enthusiastic, friendly, and confident, because everyone else will be trying to stand out, so don't be shy and regret it! Smile a lot, and if you know your stuff you should be absolutely fine really Good luck with it all, I hope it goes well!
