Interview questions

Possible questions that may be asked at interview can be anticipated by reading the person specification for the vacancy. The essential and desirable criteria set out in the person specification tell you the areas that will be covered at interview. Use this information also to guess the questions that may be asked. If you are going for a place on an academic course this can again be done by reading the course entry requirements and syllabus information.
