lol for my interview I mentioned a lot of my extra curricular activities and my guy just wrote it down, which I think is good.

I did have like a two second pause for when he asked me what I wonder about lol and I think he wrote "...." or something.

I exaggerated a lot of my awards and extra curriculars so hopefully that will be good and I think the most important thing is to tell them that you want to participate in all of the opportunities you receive because ultimately thats what they want from the student.

I dont know how much the group discussions matter but if it was the main criterion I probably wont be getting in lol.

I just hate all the competition from my school and I kinda wish that there was no 3% rule. Oh well hopefully I dont see a rejection letter somewhere around September lol.

Have all the interviews finished or do some people still have interviews?

Also for the quiz I screwed that up pretty bad but I dont think they really care as long as you pretty much provide them with tons of diagrams and stuff to show that you know what youre doing,
actually, I go on a completely different path, where I don't have that a lot of electives, and I only excel at a few of them. since there are no certificates available, I have to spend some time to explain. but besides this, I did make an appeal about their curriculums fits me, I think I could read the message in the teacher's eyes: this guy fits us!
since I'm not great at advertisement, what I do is show that "I need JMSS" instead of "JMSS needs me" like most people do. you should try that if you don't have really glorious achievements.
Upward and outward, no matter the cost.

Did anyone feel like they screwed up the interview!?!
Feels same here, I stuck once for like every sentence, what I prepared and memorized are a lot different from what is actually asked. I basically have make up everything in a minute from scratch.
.

Yes I am having mixed feelings rn. Donít know what the results will be but I anticipate for the best.

DW guys, we have done everything that we can, let's just hope for the best, but we should always be prepared for the worst. Tbh with you all, I am surprised that I got into the interviews itself! And for those who still have interviews, good luck!!

Dear parent

Thank you for allowing your son/daughter to register for entry into the John Monash Science School. As part of this process, we would like to invite ME for an interview.

Interviews will be approximately 40 minutes in duration; however candidates are advised to allow 80 minutes for any delays that may occur. Parents are welcome to wait at reception or return 1.5 hours after drop off. There is a considerable amount of construction underway on the campus which causes access and parking restrictions. Please see the Monash University website for a map that outlines the access restrictions and parking facilities on Campus and factor this into your travel plans.

Please bring copies of the following documents to the interview:

Copies of the studentís 2018 end of year and 2019 mid-year reports, if available. If the 2019 mid-year report is not available at the time of interview, a copy must be sent to JMSS as soon after you receive it as practicable.
Copies of the documents will be retained by John Monash Science School until the end of the selection process.

Any other documents which you consider relevant, such as:
Evidence of participation in co-curricular activities or leadership roles
Any certificates or awards you feel might be of interest to the panel (Any medals/trophies should be photographed)
Any evidence of involvement in science beyond the general school curriculum
 

No original documents will be accepted and those documents presented for consideration should be in one clear sheet protector, not in a folder.

To confirm your childís attendance at this interview and if you have any further queries, please e-mail our Registrar/Operations Manager, Trish Shaw-Elliott at [email protected]

Yours sincerely,

Peter Corkill

I just had the interview, I don't think I'll get in. BTW, for anyone wondering what the maths quiz and activites are, no point asking as they change the activities every day or so. My friend from yesterday had a completely different maths quiz to me.

Hey guys I got an email to come tomorrow to the interview, I had actually got the email in the first round and it was in my mum's spam that we didn't check. I feel so mad because I could have had two weeks to prepare. So could someone quickly PM their question so I can just see how hard they may be. Could they also give me some advice? Thanks
