    any interview tips?

    i almost broke down the other day prepping for it
    Don't panic? And prepare for the basic questions: NHS, Work experience, etc

    There really aren't that many possible tips

    I've had my King's interview, seriously don't stress yourself out! It's honestly not a horrible interview, for now just do some light prep, read over your notes/ps etc casually and relax!

    Good luckkk

    Oh do you have one on Tuesday too? Same, I keep doing tiny little bits but get distracted a lot. :rolleyes:
    The good thing is the interviews are apparently quite friendly, and from what I can tell they give out quite a few offers compared to interviews. So just have to try and stay optimistic!

    Yep! I've had such a crazy week, I mean I've gone through the article and formed an opinon, but don't know how much detail to go in lol.

    Haha yeah, I'm basically just hoping for nice interviewers tbh.

    Ah I've gone through the article and made a list of pros/cons, but still not sure as to what my decision on it is yet.

    What time is yours? 1.30pm here.

    Remeber to have a break and take some time for yourselves guys. You'll be no use when it comes to your Jan exams and find you've completely burned out because you didn't take a break. It is a holiday after all Although I do admire your commitment to do well, wish I was more like that last year :rolleyes:
    That's what I've been doing since like September - taking breaks :ashamed2:

    As long as you do work, breaks are good things That's what I did for two years and managed to get the grades I've read that taking a nap helps you retain information better. I can't find the original source, but it said something along the lines of: the recent information short term memory place in your brain fills up rather quickly and by taking a nap say 30mins or so that helps shift it to the long term memory bit and "empties" the recent info bit so you have more "space" for new information. (It was described in as simply as that, although they explained it a lot better than I did)

    So basically taking a nap helps you revise! It's what got me through second year haha

    Think you are being too harsh on yourself.
    I get distracted tons so i set a goal of completing one task then going on tsr/hotmail for maybe 5 minutes then getting back to work. Helps me get through everything and its not like i am continuously studying either.

    Well, my interviewers were unfriendly and sarcastic. I came out totally battered. Be prepared...

    Haha you are totally me a year ago :') Why don't you have a complete day off doing nothing related to school or uni or work or anything to de-stress (I imagine you're maybe getting a bit stressed from the fact that feel you aren't doing work?) You'll probably feel a lot better and more refreshed and will be more likely to do work effectively. Also you could try rewarding yourself perhaps? If I revise X, Y and Z effectively and remember them in 2 hrs then I can have (insert something you really like here). I found it worked well with me when my "treat" was checking my emails in the hope that a uni had emailed me haha
