    The sixth form im applying to are going to ask me these few questions and I don't know how to reply. Can you give me like answers or what you would say as an answer to these questions?
    1. What would you contribute to this school?
    2. Why did you apply to this school?
    3. Talk to me about your chosen subject choices:
    English Literature
    Biology
    Chemistry
    4. Why did you choose these subjects ( even though I picked them for medicine what should I say)?
    5. What makes you stand out?

    Youre going to have to think about this yourself.

    They look for personal answers, and there is no one right answer that is going to guarantee you a place.

    Whenever i have an interview coming up I personally find it really helpful to think of as many questions as possible that may be asked and then take the time to plan my answers. It sounds like you’ve got a nice advantage here by knowing exactly what questions are going to be asked.

    What sort of personal strengths and skills do you have? For example, if you are strong in empathy then you could contribute to the positive wellbeing of your by peers by being someone to talk to.

    Do you have good organisational skills? If you do you could contribute by being a mentor to your peers who don’t have this skill as well developed as you do. This could then contribute to higher grades amongst your year group, but you’d need to explain why better organisational could have this effect.

    These are just examples. As mentioned by the previous poster they need to come from you.

    For the second question I’d research the school website, find out about the history and what makes it unique or different from others in the area.

    For the third one I’d read up more about what I’ll actually be studying in terms of specific topics and what I’m looking forward to and what appeals to me.

    For the fourth you can mention it’s to do with your chosen career/course at university but I’d also think about which skills and strengths they might help me develop.

    For the fifth one well this is another opportunity to talk about what strengths and skills you have but you should use different examples to the ones used in number two.

    These are just some ideas, I hope this helps. Good luck!
