    What would be the best responses to these then?
    each response is unique to the individual. *hopes that was a decent cover-up in not having to think up perfect interview answers*

    Sorry to entirely hijack your thread, but does anybody feel that having high grades actually hinders your chances of getting a low pay retail position?
    Its crossed my mind before, but I thought I was just being paranoid! When I went to an interview for a local John Lewis store the interviewer said

    " I notice you're very......well educated..."

    because of my grades but it amused me because in my mind "well educated" makes me think of some posh boarding school in the countryside rather than inner city comprehensive I went to
