Prepare your personal statement well. Know your stuff in Physics, Electronics, Maths etc. (I'm not sure what they will ask you since my interview was for CS and it's more clear cut what they can ask).

Be passionate

Take 5-8 seconds to think about your answer.

Don't over prepare to the point of robotic answers - they want to see what you are like as a person, not how easy it is to memorise answers.

and finally, as stupid as this sounds, do absolutely no work when there is 2 or 3 days before your interview. Think about it, you've done the hard part of doing all of the activities and securing the interview in the first place. What are you going to earn from just grinding the activities you've done in the past few months (maybe even years) over again? It's just a waste of time. Use those days to relax and calm down.
