For me the, the pre interview prep test was chill, I’m sure I did well enough on that. My first interview I kind of bombed tbh, made many silly mistakes and my nerve really showed. My second interview was much better though. However, I’ve heard there’s a threshold for each interview for offers to be made, so do I still stand a chance?
I was the exact same, bombed my first, test went well and then I felt more calm for the last interview and so I think it went better. I’m hoping it’s some sort of average so I still have a chance lol

My teacher said that even looking back on it now he bombed his first interview then did decently in the 2nd and he got in so you guys shouldn't worry too much!

I thought it went awful but looking back it wasn’t too bad, and don’t worry about the project too much they barely spend any time talking about it

First one was good! talked a lot about my project and they asked me about another one which as great cos I have too much to say about them lol
Maths questions were ok too
2nd was more challenging and I got confused at the end of a couple questions but got them in the end. Didn't have time for the 4th question they had prepared for me :/

Wbu?

first one was okay. Second one was a horrible disaster. I got really confused doing even the simplest math problems and my brain just stopped working. And they didn't ask any personal statement related questions

Pretty much the same I guess. I was confused during the 2nd interview but I guess everyone felt about it that way. I'm glad it's over!
