    It depends on what subject it is, but some popular ones would be working under pressure, working independently, problem solving and so on.

    Best thing would be to make it up! They're not going to check, just write that you managed the accounting of your local charity shop or that you realised that your local Oxfam was charging too little so decided to volunteer price checks on some of their items and helped them improve their profits!

    Either don't mention it because they aren't really linked, or heavily stretch the truth like I suggested

    I'm assuming you're applying this year and not to Oxbridge since they don't do the course and you've missed the deadline for it. I'm unsure which University you would be applying to which requires an interview for Accounting and Finance?

    I would relate it more to your attitude to work than the actual subject as the link is a little tenuous.
