    Hi!! I have an upcoming interview too. Lest this be the thread of unanswered interview tip hopefuls, could you please shed some light on your interview day? Qns you were asked? And about your presentation? What did you talk about? I was considering doing the 'area of maths i'm interested in', but i'm not sure whether to talk about why I was interested in it or just explain what the topic was about.
    Thanks!

    Noooni hasn't visited the forum since their post above in April.

    I believe the rules of the forum prevent people from posting specific interview questions etc anyway.

    Maths is such a shortage subject that the university won't be looking to catch people out during interviews. In all likelihood, they have spaces for everyone that they are interviewing. They primarily interview to ensure that candidates have what it takes to be successful on the course. Can you talk passionately about your subject? Are you able to stand up in front of people and speak with clarity? This is to ensure that you are not going to fall apart as soon as you have to teach a class. The content of the presentation is unlikely to matter too much unless you include something that it is mathematically or grammatically incorrect.

    I do know that it's a shortage subject but because of the bursary incentive, there seems to be a lot more applicants. Add that with the pressure of being last minute, I'm a bag of nerves! But thank you anyhow! I'm just gonna look at your message everytime I worry!!
    Thanks again!! So so so much!!!

    There aren't a lot of applicants. Places will be left unfilled.
