Describe a situation here you have worked well under pressure? watch

    Yeah pretty much what the title says..
    Had a job interview and was asked this, some of the things other people said sounded so made up, just want to know what others would say

    my school changed the science examboards like 6 months before the GCSE exams
    our teachers told us there was no way - no time to teach us
    had to learn 3 years worth of work in 6 months and got 9 As and A*s in the triple science exams (got Bs and Cs in everything else but you don't need to know that haha)
    6 months of continuous work and i don't work FOR ANYTHING
    i CANNOT work unless i'm under pressure - not disciplined at all #noshame

    that's the sort of question which is much easier to answer once you've worked for a few years, I can think of loads of work situations:

    1. working in a card shop over xmas, trying to balance keeping the shop tidy and organised while there was people queuing out the door to be served

    2. dealing with medical emergencies at work

    3. working in a school in a high needs group and managing the different needs of lots of individuals

    it's less about what you say you did and more about what skills you can demonstrate, so for this question they want to know you can remain calm and not panic, step your game up to get the job done, stay positive, work hard etc so try and get key terms like that in
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
