Has anyone got experience of social work group interviews?!?

I've done one once but froze!

People were bringing up different acts and social policies... BUT WHAT ARE THEY LOOKING FOR?!?

Interviews coming up soon, any advice welcomed.

Thanks.

What universities have you got interviews for?

I've had two group tasks as part of my interviews and both were very different

I can't help out with what the group discussion will be like for the unis you have applied too but in my experience it can vary from uni to uni on what is expected.

Ultimately they will be looking at how you are able to communicate, don't be a shrinking violet and not say anything but don't domineer the conversation and cut people up, and it's just as much about listening as well as speaking! They will also, possibly, be looking at your body language, so hold yourself well and smile

Some unis will give you a topic for the group discussion, make sure you know what this is and do some reading around it, you will probably be asked what the topic is before you start the group discussion. If you haven't been given a topic to discuss prior you may be given something like a case study to discuss. Whatever way they decide to structure your group discussion, what you would of been asked to do will be asked about in the actual interview - things like, how did you feel about your contribution ect.
