hi so i recieved an Arkwright scholarship this year and obviously we didn't have the interviews but for the test i would advise practising you drawing skill such as have friends or family give you an issue that you can quickly design a product for and practice adding as much detail in annotations as possible since they are looking for ability to think quickly but also your ability to convey how the product works
hope this helps

so the main structure of the exam is split into two parts where its mainly single topic based like there is a topic on electronics and fabrics which are roughly the different areas that can be studied at GCSEs so maybe find out which you personally are studying from your teacher and then revise them. in short you should just go over how most systems and parts of this systems work so you can put them in there if need be

Not the case in NI (I think), but think should check with school or Arkwright directly

They just sent out an email, aptitude test is cancelled, it's just a longer interview I'm pretty sure
