Asked by Karan Kumar about 1 year ago
Here I have listed the most frequently asked interview questions along with how you can answer them:
1. Why do you want to attend this university?
This question tests your knowledge of the university
Talk about what makes you and the university perfect for each other
Give detailed, thoughtful reasons
Don’t mention things like the nightlife or costs,
Don’t say anything that indicates you didn’t really put much thought into your decision.
2. Why do you want to study this subject?
This question is very important.
Explain what drew you to the subject
Show how the subject fits in with your career goals or other aspirations
Don’t say anything that implies you went with what someone else suggested
3. What can you bring to the university?
This can be tempting to exaggerate – but try not to go over the top!
Back up what you say with examples
Mention activities you’ve been involved in that show your contribution to the school’s community,
“Why should we offer you a place?” is a similar question, which might be asked
In this case, summarize all the key points that make you an ideal student community.
4.How would your friends describe you?
Say something memorable and meaningful, such as
- you’re determined or motivated
- you’re a natural leader
- a good collaborator
Be honest but focus on your strengths
Pro Tip : Back up what you say with examples
5. What achievement are you most proud of?
Mention an achievement which is recent and talk about how it positively affected you.
this could be a academic or a non-academic achievement
This activity will show that you achieved this whilst completing your studies.
6. What do you like to do in your spare time?
This is asked to shed some light on your personality.
Talk about a proactive hobby that you do often – playing a sport
Mention the skills you learnt
Avoid bringing up controversial hobbies, that make you sound lazy or easily distracted (such as online shopping or watching Netflix).
7. What is your greatest strength (and weakness)?
For the strengths part, it’s tempting to give a clichéd but safe answer, like “I’m a hard worker”.
But interviewers are looking for something more thoughtful, backed up with examples.
The weakness side of the question can be difficult, but be honest
Talk about a weakness that you’ve already improved
