    Hello everyone

    I have a so called group assessment evening with pets at home on monday. If any of you here had an interview with them could you please help me and tell me what does it look like? I have found of from other threads that there will be a task activity where I will have to either build a hamster cage or design a fish tank.

    I'm really nervous, as I don't especially like talking in front of other people. My only language is fine and I can easily maintain eye contact its just the speaking that Im not a fan of. Generally Im confident but the public speaking always turns me off and makes me look really nervous. I don't want them to turn me down because of it If I will have to do any speaking what and for how long will I have to speak?

    Any tips for the activity? What did you say/do if you had one? Or what would you change in your interview? What are they looking for? Is it really stressful? Please help
