Been invited to completed an interview for the program! Could someone confirm questions they were asked? Is it more quantitative heavy or behavioral questions? I don't come from a econ or finance background, so I'm a little worried!

I did my interview just before Christmas and the main questions were very general:

- what do i do outside school/work (sports, volunteering etc)
- why am i eager to study in London
- if i met my most admired CEO, how would i introduce myself
- 1 written question (to respond in 5 minutes): i am about to have an important job meeting with a client and he decides to cancel the meeting, how would i respond to that and try to change his mind
- 1 economics-related question: what does it mean when we say that a market has barriers to enter

Don't forget to hold you ID at the beginning, I almost forgot it!

Good luck

Thank you so so so much! I really appreciate it. I’m doing mine on Thursday and was panicking a bit. Hope you got in to the program! And YES, the ID card, thanks for the reminder, feeling ready now for the interview

I got my offer yesterday Just chill, honestly, i did terribly on the interview. I did not have a very structured response because i was very nervous, I even stuttered and did a lot of uhms etc. On the non-general questions just answer directly, without trying to have a "written style" - overly formal and too fancy response.

What do you mean by non-general questions;

Thanks in advance.
You have two questions which are not about your personality etc. One is written and the other is economics related. You have to be direct in both and not try to make it "fancy" with your wording. My written question was to try to convince someone via email so i had to be very precise and direct (because 5 minutes are not really enough!). Just be clear and direct.

So i think that if 10 days have passed since i submitted my appliacation, i do not hold a chance of even getting an interview?

That is not sure!! If you check the other thread with all postgrad applications the timelines of each one are very different. Have your references been completed and approved? What's the status on the portal? Also, when did you apply?

I have applied on the 30th of Jan, and the references are completed on the 4th of Feb. However, I haven't heard anything even the interview invitation to date. Should I be worried? do people often get the interview after the references turn approved?
