Dear Theo One of the interviews I have this week will have a student panel in addition to the usual panel. What is the role of the student panel? Do they have any say in the final outcome of the day? What kind of questions ar they likely to ask - I assume the questions will have been prepared for the students by the SLT - or may they have been allowed to make up their own. Will members of the regular panel be present or wil lit really be just the candidate and the students? Some schools seem to use student panels a lot in interviews, whereas others never do. Why is this? Any help appreciated.
