just try to take deep breaths and remember that they are interviewing you because they want you in their university. buggering up your interview because of nerves will not help. make sure you are properly prepared for the interview, that way you know how to answer questions and there shouldnt be any that stump you. im sure youll be fine, good luck!

Stay up late watching horror films before the interview. Makes you less scared of the interviewers and you'll forget about the interview as you'll be pre-occupied with scenes from said horror films. My personal recommendations would be the original japanese ring trilogy, dead alive and audition. Got me through both of my interviews.

the classic rowing technique
technique? type of race, surely? :tongue:

i just try to remember that they are not expecting some sort of super-human effort, and that you will just be having a conversation, nothing more. Not really a technique though .

Rabbit on and on at the nearest, equally terrified applicant, until you find something worthwhile to talk about and then get engrossed in a really interesting conversation until you're called into the interview room :tongue:

I think its better to go in with a rush of adrenaline---atleast that way for me there won't be any awkward silences. (I tend to talk a lot when I'm nervous).

Keep telling yourself how important it is and that if you screw up your life will be ruined. pace up and down, drink lots of coffee and don't eat anything.

Works every time

I dont know really.
For my 2 interviews I was fairly calm. PMS I met someone who I did WE with and spent the whole time chatting to them. As for UCL as I had had PMS the day before I wasnt stressed as I (thought) I knew what interviews were like

Because you feel prepared

Not a technique but Bach's Rescue Remedy is so good. Got me through university exams a treat, and just got me through my postgrad interview too.
