I had a telephone interview today and I couldn't understand the Scottish lady because of her accent , I asked her politely to repeat some questions several times and I think she was getting a bit frustrated because at the end she seemed to talk sarcastically slowly at the end. Also I normally ask several questions at the end/have a bit of a chat when having a interview but she was very strict on the time limit and said the interview was over.
Shall I give up hope on this job and pursue other ones? she said I would know by next week if i move on to Assessment centres or not.

Put it out of your mind for now, as she said you'll hear back next week.
With the current graduate job situation you should be applying for lots of jobs at the same time anyway - if you wait for one to conclude before starting another application you'll never get anywhere!

No hope on this job mate, she couldn't understand you, you couldn't understand her = bad interpersonal skills. Just sign on the dole mate
