Hi yolo,tl;dr don’t ever be underprepared for the written assessment as the responses could be the only thing marked
Thank you so much for sharing the experience, I just have a few questions.
Is the panel discussion still in groups on zoom this year? If so does everyone gets asked the same questions and take a turn to speak?
Also, did you get asked any ethical scenarios, covid related questions, etc?
I'm not Novobo but I also took the USYD interview this year. The panel discussion is indeed in smaller groups. We were assigned a specific number and I was placed in a group with 4 other people and asked questions. Whoever raised their hand first in our group got to answer first and the lady interviewing us picked who would answer next. If you missed a question, then generally you were given first priority for the subsequent one. I agree with Novobo that the discussion was rather casual and seemed more like advertising for the university than an assessment. I can't remember the exact terms of the NDA so I'm not going disclose the contents of the questions themselves.
