Admission Physical Interview VS Post UTME

1) Personal Likeness: In admission Interview, so many factors will determine your admission. If you were called into the panel and someone just like you and got interested in you, you will surely pass. Unlike the Post UTME where personal likeness has nothing to do with your performance.

2) Personal Hatred: Just like the scenes I narrated above about my final year screening. If someone in the panel just hate you for any reason, hmmmmmm….am sorry, that may be the end of your admission for that year. Though I recommended that, you pray well for good luck.

Should you wear a complete native dress? Jeans, Suit or what to attend an admission interview? I will tell you that in the E-Book ‘Complete Guide To Pass admission Screening Interview”

It is advisable, you already get the usual University’s interview questions and and answers and practice them as much as possible withing a short period of time before your interview day. You can even ask someone in your house to ask you those questions, in form of practice to see how well you will perform.

Let me start by telling you my brief experience with University’s interview

Though I gain admission into University Of Ilorin through Post UTME and was not subjected to any form of panel interview. Apart from various scholarship interviews I attended in my 200 and 300levels as an undergraduate, I never knew so many things could contribute to failure in an interview apart from personal fault until my final year.

Sometimes you will realize you failed an interview not because you did not do well, but either because your interviewer just don’t like you, your luck did not shine, something just went wrong and so many others.

I experienced this in my final year screening at the University. The head of the panel ( a woman) was unfriendly to me, and she could not hide this. The only cause of my her hatred for me was because, as a direct entry student, I had my National Diploma from Federal Polytecnic Kaura Namoda, Zamfara State.

She asked why would I go that far for such unpopular school in the name of admission, while so many good polytechnics are around. I was to bring my diploma original certificate which was not yet out, and she promised that, she will never send any delegate to Zamfara to verify my result. Never would she do that.

She wrote NOT CLEAR on my file, and fling away my credentials.I packed my stuff  gently on from the floor, and most of my course-mates were asking what really happened. Do you believed this same woman cleared another candidate from a very far polytechnic than mine? Even without her original certificate also.

Another Experience:

I had once attended a scholarship interview, the chairman of the panel only asked me of my name and my State, and told me to leave. The same chairman who was completely unfriendly to most of the applicants. I got the scholarship without stress, while many failed.

My experiences above are both matters of personal hatred and likeness. That is why you need to prepare well for interview better than you would have prepared for Post UTME. Interview is more tough than Post UTME, because with little mistake you are out.
