    I was wondering how everyone else was preparing for the interview?
    Are you lot just reading around the subjects you're interested in and practising on preseenting your project?
    Any advice would be helpful.

    I'm gonna get my parents to interview me (as awkward as it is) nearer to the date. I'm also gonna make sure I know my portfolio like the back of my hand, and that I'm prepared to answer any potential questions that the interviewers could ask me about my projects

    I can't. The interviewers are going to ask you questions relevant to your project and your interests. Obviously, it's different for everyone so I suggest you make sure you understand everything there is to know about the project you intend to show them.

    It's not an interview you can prepare for as the topics in 'engineering' are so diverse. I'm sure you will get a scholarship so don't worry so much

    Hi, I was awarded the scholarship last year.

    The interview goes very fast - They will not ask you questions on anything in engineering you may not know about - If you are not sure about a topic in your project read up on it and impress them. Make sure you know about anything you talk about and anything in your project.

    Try and prepare for questions regarding leadership and qualities you possess which makes you a leader. Eg. Delegation, organisation, etc.

    They will ask you about teamwork, etc - If there are points you want to get across, angle your answers towards those questions. The time goes very quickly. They're not there to trick you or catch you out... Apart from that there's not much else to say... Most questions really regard you plans for the future and your project - Demonstrate or talk about what problem or issue your project solves and why you chose it - Eg. A more sustainable way for collecting water or it saves more money. Anything irrelevant leave out.

    Does anyone know if it's an e-mail result or a letter? Other years said they got letters home by this time so I was wondering if anyone has results yet?
