TAILORED INTERVIEW PRACTICE
When it comes to applying to the top independent schools, passing the academic exams are only the first hurdle. Every year candidates do all they can to prepare for the exams only to realise, often too late, that once those are passed it’s the interview that will determine whether they get into the school of their dreams. Take Latymer Upper, who last year had 1,100 candidates sit its exams, 400 of whom reached interview after which only 170 were accepted. These sorts of ratios are common amongst the best schools – so how can you help your child make the interview cut?
It’s a difficult balancing act, the last thing schools want are over prepped robots who come across as un-natural, but it is also all too common that good candidates miss out on places by interviewing badly.
To build your child’s confidence and understanding our Moxams mock interview will provide:
- An interview in a setting similar to the one they will encounter on the day, either in person or via Zoom (or similar) if the interview is online;
- A practice interview with an experienced interviewer whom they won’t have met before – to mirror the actual assessment day;
- Typical questions to those asked by your target school.
After the interview, we will supply a detailed, personalised report that highlights strengths, flags areas that can be worked on and tips on how to practice at home or a recording of the feedback session with your child.
