To those who would wish to apply for the ANU scholarship next year, I would like to share my interview experience:
There were 75 applicants this year and only 22 got shortlisted for the interview. There were 4 interviewers and they are all ANU alumni members. They're nice people... around 30-40 years old i guess. Yes, they ask all conventional questions and most of it can be found from the tips for interview in the 1st issue of remag.
What did they ask me... hmm ... ok ..
1. My background
2. I chose psychology and i was the only one so they were pretty surprised because the others chose actuarial sc, biotech etc.... so they asked me how would my course contribute to the developement of the country
3. Is ANU a good place to study psychology
4. What do i know about the university
5. What i intend to do after my course
YEah .... something like that larh. Each interview session took about 15-20 minutes.
Uhm... after the interview, they will select 5 candidates and send their names to ANU and ANU will choose ONE out of the 5. So, ultimately, does the interview really matter? hmm... well, whatever it is... it was a good experience for me. So, people out there... don't be afraid to try! Although you might not get it, but you'll deffinately not get if you don't try.
