Guys should I go again next year?
Hell yeah!

I got an interview at Ebss for year 11. Just wondering what I should wear for the interview? Would causal clothes be fine?
Yeah, casual is fine. I'm going in casual too.

I'm wagging school that day for the interview

Just gonna rock up in a hoodie and some jeans.  :P

BTW when we do the group work activities before our interview, make sure you look like your collaborating! Even if you don't know that answers to questions or shit just make sure you're collaborating with your peers!

Good luck everyone  :D

I honestly don't think there is any purpose in doing so, mostly due to the fact that they didn't request we do so.

Yes, you should, it will add to your credentials and merits. You may even impress the interviewer, but all in all just bring as much as you can in order to stand out from the rest. They prefer all-well rounders over academic blobs.

Guys should I go again next year?

Yes definitely, I will try my very best to support you as much as I can.  ;)

Mod edit: Hey, please use the 'modify' button on your original post rather than making a second post right after. It keeps the forum easy to navigate for others searching for posts. No big deal, I see you're new :) -- Calebark

Huh

I sorta disagree specifically because they haven't requested it.
If they wanted to see your achievements they would mention it, wouldn't they?

The interviews are more to find out what type of person you are, and how devoted you are to STEM and succeeding in VCE.

Does anyone actually know what percentage of the people who got an interview will be successful in getting a place at EBS?

idk but i know that 38 people will guarantee not get accepted due to 5% rule *cough *cough, the 40 or so UHS students who sat the exam. The rest are pretty much guarantee accepted as long as we prepare for the interview and don't act anti-social during the group activities. Also prepare an EI question, it can be changed at any time. I know for a fact at least a few people will decline (like the people who got into jmss for example) Gl everyone.

I will think about it, but I heard it will be much harder next year.

That sounds great, but I got a low average so that will impact my chances I think.

Use the 'modify' button on your first post when you need to add to it. Otherwise it spams the forum and makes it harder for other people to find posts helpful to them. -- Calebark

Hey guys, for EBSS, will we need to learn about calculus, like full on or just basic pre-calc knowing about differentiation and integration.

And for science, for physics, will we need to learn about special relativity?? Thanks a million for your help!
