At Rostrum, we offer comprehensive and rigorous personalized support in the form of Oxbridge Mock Interviews to assist you in putting your best foot forward towards your Oxford or Cambridge application.
Interviews are an opportunity for university tutors to test the student’s critical thinking skills, their ability to deal with unseen material, analyze, structure their thoughts and communicate with brevity, exuding confidence and passion for the subject. The interview process is awarded a very high weightage in Oxford and Cambridge in particular. Going prepared is thus the best way to turn your dream into reality.
Our Oxbridge Mock Interviews develop in students the knack to answer with utmost lucidity and coherence. It exposes them to academic areas which could potentially be tested, prepares them to deal with unseen material and ambiguity and gives them the rare experience of the atmosphere they will encounter in their actual interview.
OUR PREPARATION STRATEGY
1. Our package offers four mock interviews- two of them conducted by our Oxbridge specialist, Gwyn Day and two subject-specific interviews conducted by Oxbridge graduates from the same course
2. We aim at recreating the actual interview environment to enable students to gain comfort and confidence and make it less nerve-racking for them
3. Each of the four Oxbridge Mock Interviews are followed by feedback sessions to identify action points for further preparation
4. Oxbridge graduates prepare for the student’s one on one mock interview by familiarizing themselves with his/her SOP and any submitted work, so that they can replicate the real experience as closely as possible and provide highly personalized feedback
