Mock Interviews

For many pupils, their university entrance interview is their first ever interview. Interview preparation is one of the most useful skills a school can help pupils to develop. When pupils know what to expect in an interview, they are less nervous and more able to be themselves.

OAs are invited to help with the following interview evenings in Michaelmas Term:

Oxbridge Interviews Familiarisation Evening
Friday 9 November 2018

Abingdon School
A workshop for U6 pupils who are applying to Oxbridge to help them prepare for interview and critique their personal statement. OAs who have recently interviewed for Oxbridge or who have experience of giving university inteviews (including Oxbridge) are invited to volunteer.

Medic Interviews Evening
Tuesday 6 November 2018

Abingdon School
A mock interviews evening designed specifically for Upper Sixth pupils who are applying for medicine courses at university. OAs who work in the medical profession – especially those who have experience of university interviewing – are invited to volunteer.

Please email the OA Club Office on if you would like to volunteer at either of these events.
