University Interviews, please help!

  1. Hi, I'm Terry.
    On Wednesday i will be attending my first university interview, at Newmen. for an undergraduate ITE in primary with PE. I'm not worried about the English and maths tests. I'm not worried about the interview itself. I'm worried about the short presentation. it's not speaking to a group of people that has me worried but the content of the presentation.
    I'm stressing myself out of what to talk about. I have a few ideas such as: a mock cookery lesson (I was a chef for 9 years.) a talk about cleft lip and palate. (my daughter was born with a clift lip.) or should I think about talking about a currant issue within education?
    I would be grateful for any suggestions that you have,
    Thanks in advance,
    Terry. [​IMG]

  3. What's the brief they've given you?
    More often than not, they are actually looking at your presentation/talking/teaching style more than the content. You could talk about something really mundane, but if you make it interesting, engaging, imfortative and accessible then you've done what they are (probably) looking for.
