    Hi, i'm preparing for a Law interview i have tomorrow and going through questions I am struggling to answer one which could be a possible question tomorrow

    Q- Have you ever been in a situation where you realise afterwards that what you said or did was wrong?
    In hindsight what would you have done differently?

    If anyone could give me some ideas as to their answer to this so I can formulate some ideas for my own answer that would be awesome

    Thanks

    Completely fine, whatever tsr comes up with mould that negative into a positive portrayal of your character. An idea would be where you were wrong in secondary school, volunteer work, your job etc but whatever you come up with make it so the recruiter can think we want this guy at our uni.

    Think of a situation where you did something wrong? Examples include; making wrong decision during football/rugby/cricket or whatever games. Usually it is a good idea to use these kinds of activities when answering those questions. However you could think of times in school if you have done group work etc.

    The basis of MY answer would be as follows;

    1) Background into the subject
    2) What I did wrong
    3) Why was it wrong?
    4) When did I realise?
    5) Did I correct it?
    6) How?
    7) What did I learn?

    I've no idea, it's really had to tell what they're looking for and some of the questions were fairly difficult on the spot questions.
