    Thanks in advance

    I would say the following:

    -stay calm
    -take time over your answers
    -appear flexible and open minded (if the interviewer suggests a new idea or interpretation explain how that changes (if it does change) your opinion on something
    -speak slowly and pause to think if you need to
    -listen
    -think of questions you could ask your interviewer: maybe about the school or about any of the topics discussed in the interview

    Lastly, good luck! Interviews can be intensely stressful and nerve-racking but also enjoyable experiences
