Pupils seeking admission to overseas schools should prepare early and prepare thoroughly. Rarely are interviews merely a formality. Developing the required confidence and skills to impress at interview takes time. Every interview is different. Each head has his or own style of interviewing, adapting as they investigate whether the candidate has the potential to settle, be happy and succeed at that school. Frequently, the head will delegate the interview to a deputy, housemaster or housemistress. Candidates should be ready for a variety of approaches.

As they grow in confidence, a pupilโ€™s body language becomes more positive and the pupil makes better use of their voice. Their answers become more assured and more detailed.
