I'm not confident atall but i need peace of mind it's been driving me mad thinking 'i should of said this...' and I'm at the stage now that i want it over and done with!

    Hey Guys,

    I am all new to this. I have been reading through all your comments - some great info. I have an interview for both Queens and UU next week. Have been working a lot and haven't got a chance to look at anything yet. Did you guys spend quite a bit of time looking over things? Any tips on anything in specific or do you think if I follow the guidelines I should be ok? I know there is 6 questions but within each question was there more than 1 questions in each of them?
    Wish yous all the best of luck....eeekkk exciting but nerve wreaking too.

    Can't wait to get the interviews out of the way now.

    Thanks mmq02, yeh I think that if I follow the guidelines carefully I should be ok. I may just get preparing as much as I can inbetween work. Yeah like I was thinking of looking up relevant cases/issues that may be useful.

    Yeah I will let you all know how I get on, that's good its always good to have nice interviewers as someone not so nice could put you off. Awh I would say it is amazing having them over and done with it's just the waiting afterwards tho but as I say whatever will be will be

    Gooood Luck!

    after my interview I'd say try and stay calm if you can! the Nerves ate away at me during mine but the interviewers will understand. My biggest tip would be to make sure you have some of your own experience and a piece of recent news up your sleeve and don't be afriad to ask them to repeat the question or ask to go back to a previous question! good luck you'll do great
