    Hey! Yes I did, and I got an offer

    Well they asked really unexpected questions. I can't remember them all but these are the ones I remember:
    - what has been your most proudest achievement to date?
    - how would you introduce yourself to a panel of interviewers despite your nerves?
    - then they asked one question about what's needed in a marketing plan (this was the only question related to marketing)
    - written: draft an email to a company that has offered you an internship in 350 words or more. You are still waiting to hear from another company that you are hoping to have an internship with but you don't want to lose the offer from the other company.

    That's all I remember, sorry! But I genuinely hope it helps

    You're welcome and I hope that you receive an offer too

    To be honest, it was really tough. When i read that question i was really put off because I didn't even know what to write! But be careful, cause I made the mistake of pressing the space bar (which will start the timer) before I even had any idea of what I was going to write. So I lost a little time because of that.

    Basically, I didn't finish my question, but I tried to make it as grammatically correct as possible without any spelling mistakes.

    I wrote about how I was extremely thankful and honoured to be offered for the position but if it was possible for me a week to make my decision (I really minted this part lol because I also wrote how the position will help me learn new skills, sharpen my skills and work in an environment that will give me insight into the industry). I also wrote if they required any other documents from me.

    The my timer cut out so I didn't have an opportunity to finish that question. Gave myself a mental kick for that.

    The written question really isn't something you can prepare I guess. Maybe just learn to type faster? haha

    I hope that helps!

    Yea, I was going crazy waiting to hear back from them! Unfortunately they don't give feedback on interviews.. well they didn't give me any feedback but I don't think there's no harm in emailing them and asking for feedback

    Same here, my interview was exactly a month ago! However, I've read that Imperial takes 6-8 weeks to reply so I think everything is normal so far and the decisions deadline for round 2 is on April 13th so we have to wait around 2 more weeks to get the results.
