    Prepare properly and research from the schools website the qualities and values they look for.

    They want to find out who you are?
    Why you chose the school?
    Why those subjects?
    What potential you have academically?
    What your application says.
    What makes you worth choosing.
    What you can contribute to the life of the school.
    What motivates you?
    What your ambitions are?
    What values you have.

    They basically ask you for your mock results (and target grades I think but Im not sure), why you chose those subjects, what you like to do in your free time, about your plans for the future like what career you want ,etc. The lady that interviewed me was really nice and talking to her felt more like a friendly conversation than a proper interview I was expecting. I also noticed that she wrote down lots of things i talked about so I recommend saying every good thing you can think of. Like I told the lady that I got a grade 6 in my maths mock but I'm doing extra work with my teatcher to get at least a 7 and she put that down on the paper. I was really stressed before the interview because it was my first one but it wasn't that bad at all so don't worry too much!! good luck!
