Why do you want to be a prefect

What qualities do you have that will make you a good prefect ?

Probably problem based scenario questions , and you might be asked what you’ll do in that situation


Tbh I’ve been there and done it and imo be yourself

The questions are there to test your communication skills and how confident you are. They might give you a question like why you want to be a prefect but they can also ask questions like 'How can you involve the entire school to host an event?' Just don't panic and good luck

Not sure about questions but if they ask you what your weakness is never give them your weakness tell them a strength you need to work on. "A strength I need to work on is (insert).

I had my prefect interview last year and got chosen to be a prefect. I got asked:

What is your biggest strength and weakness and why?
What was your biggest accomplishment in school and why?
Why are you applying to be a prefect?
If you saw a group of students littering, what would you do?
If you had to give a tour to a new student, what part of the school would you show them first and why?
Have you done any work experience / volunteering outside of school?

It was mainly a conversation rather than an interview. I didn't think I would get picked though because I couldn't stop coughing and my head of year kept asking me if I was alright lol

due to your chosen subject e.g mine was sports captain so they asked questions on issuing detentions and suspensions due to drug related incidences

In our interviews, we had two parts.

Part A, they ask about being a prefect. Questions that may arise include: Why do you want to be a prefect? What's a good prefect? What responsibilities do you think you will hold as a prefect?

Part B, for us anyway, was all about you. They asked questions about what you do in your free time, if you had a time machine what time would you go back to, and a lot more questions is know more about you.

Yeah I didn't know when my interview was going to be, either. I just randomly got a note during my lesson telling me to go to my head of year's office! The interview wasn't too bad though - more like a conversation.

Good luck

What type of scenario question
They might ask what you'd do in some scenarios like:
- What would you do if you saw somebody littering?
- What would you do if you saw somebody getting bullied?
- What would you do if you saw somebody in your class cheating on a test?
- If you were giving a school tour to some parents, where is the first place in the school you'd show them?

Don't worry, it's unlikely you'll be asked loads of scenario questions. You'll maybe only be asked one or two depending on whether they seem relevant, but I don't know how the interviews work in your school so it might be different. In my interview I got asked the scenario questions about littering and giving a school tour.

Good luck
