Can you tell me what the 1-1 role play involved please?

Heya!!! Firstly congratulations getting through to the assessment centre, when are you going to do it??

The 1-on-1 role play, basically you are handed a “scenario” in paper form, listing details of the “scene” and who you are... and who you will be communicating with in your 1-on-1 role play....

You read through it. Read the “dilemma”.... and basically come up with a solution which you think helps the problem.....

Really simple to be honest.
You use your Inititive to be honest. Best of luck for your assessment day.

Nothing to worry about.
Walk in, be confident, hold your head high, and believe in yourself ❤️❤️❤️ let your personality shine through, that’s what I done.... you will do wonderful. Nothing too tricky is asked of anyone xx

Hey! Thanks for getting back I appreciate it! I've got my assessment today and I'm dreading it! Was it like a customer and adviser type role play testing your customer service or was it more about analysing and explaining data? The brief doesn't give much away xx

Awk bless you, it will go smoothly, so don’t panic, I know it’s easy for me to say that as I have mine done now... but honestly, the day will be over before you know it, and it’ll go well 🤗

I think the role play is just to access how you would reconcile a dilemma...

my role play, I was a leader of a group project

Sorry I had a super long reply for you... but for some reason it chopped my reply down 😭
Nightmare!

Basically i was a group leader, my accessor/1-1 role play person, was a helper in my group & they had a dilemma that I had to help them talk through & solve!!!

Don’t worry, they ask you Q’s throughout your role play to help prompt you to respond to the dilemma in the direction they need.... and so you don’t forget anything....

Best of luck. You will do great 🤗

Yes you’ve got it! You get 15 mins before the role play assessment to read your notes & to take notes if you need to, to work from whilst in your role play... I just worked off the top of my head, using my Inititive to be honest.... it’s nothing too tricky 🤗

You do get the chance to talk about the programme in your actual interview, and the opportunity to let them KNOW about you... which’ll be your chance to tell them all about yourself as well as what drew you to apply for the scholarship....

Do some deep breaths, maybe bring some music and headphones to help listen to some relaxing music? Just to help settle your nerves if your getting anxious ❤️❤️

Aaah I see so it was like judging your ability to problem solve quickly and still work well in the team I guess... Do you get much chance to talk about your achievements and personality etc too in the interview part? Do they ask you general questions about yourself as well as stuff specific to the program? Thanks for your help I get so anxious and it settles me a little knowing what to expect to an extent haha
