    Hello guys,

    I've applied to this PhD position at imperial two weeks ago. I had a phone chat with the supervisor who said my background matches the research and he also said that the industry sponsor liked my cv. I had an formal interview today with the supervisor and another professor where I presented my research. I think I presented very well but they honestly caught me on lot of questions I had no clue what to answer.

    The supervisor seemed a bit happy but surprised about the amount of content I wasn't taught at uni. I seriously flunked lots of questions.

    After we finished the interview she introduced me to her department group. I was really nervous and didn't ask many questions.

    She said she will be in touch with the industry supervisor over the weekend and give me the final decision on Monday.

    I feel gutted I know I could be a lot less anxious. But what she said about contact in g the sponsor. So you think I still stand a chance ? (She also said I'm the only one applying and some people applied before but she rejected them)

    I'm not sure what you expect people to say. No one on here can tell you how your interview performance was viewed by the people who interviewed you or what they were looking for. In some cases people would rather or can wait till the best candidate for the job comes along and in some cases they have to fill the slot within a time frame. There are lots of variables so working yourself up isn't going to get you anywhere. Just wait it out and you'll find out soon.
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
