[MENTION=12393]Emmmmma[/MENTION]: ooh 4 sleeps! Matt and/or I are working on another one as we speak, but if it's on monday, and you want the practise, I'm sure it's ok to reply to the qs in the old threads or some of the other threads that have sprung up (there's a JCU q thread, for example, maybe a few more. As far as I know, the interviewers will sometimes prompt you to answer something you may not have addressed, but some stations may have a supplementary q maybe slightly/tangentialy/ not be at all related to the initial scenario. [MENTION=12393]Emmmmma[/MENTION] : I really wasn't kidding, I went back and checked: some of my practice answers were very long winded, tangential, written in academicese, and one of them earnt me the suggestion that I was missing the forest for the trees (thank you [MENTION=998]Season[/MENTION] , it was a good point). Not that I enjoyed hearing it at the time. Hope you didn't take the criticism too much to heart, no one likes to be criticised at the best of times, and shortly before an interview isn't a good time. But I'm glad you took the advice. Also worth noting, it was actually a very small criticism: there's a lot of good things about your responses, which was what makes it worthwhile to offer the feedback at all. I don't think there's much danger of sounding like an inarticulate bogan, but the interviewer will be more focussed on what you say than how you say it, so it's probably better to sound like a kind, thoughtful empathetic bogan than a highly educated individual with nothing worthwhile to say. I never got around to transcribing them, but i did practice verbal replies, and I found it helpful. @all: whether or not you transcribe it, the idea of recording yourself answering the question is a good one and, if nothing else, will give you an idea of how much/little etc you can say in 5 minutes.
