As Gothic_Dude said, the first question is exactly what they say it will be. My second question was 'Describe a conflict at work and how you dealt with it'

Got my interview tomorrow, fingers crossed!

Done with my Video Interview. I recommend practicing a few times on the first question, and the 40 seconds prep can help with the second question. All the best to everyone! :)

Sure, buddy! It was - "Tell me about a time when you made a difference."

Also, can anyone help me on tips on how to prepare for the case presentations during the interview? Any preparation source or tips? Thank you in advance! :)

Just done the kira video essays. Several tips as follows for those who haven't finished these essays.

1. Be sure to use the "setup" function to test your network, microphone and video. I tried it several times to find the best network to use. Don't use the network which it reminds like "you may expect delay during your assessment", just find a better one.
2. Pay attention to the countdown of preparation, it will immediately begin recording after 3,2,1.
3. The loading of question video and uploading of your answer can be very slow, just stay calm and patient!
4. My second question is "Describe a time when you were a leader".

Im confused by the wording in the email for the video interview.

It says we have until Monday 29th


Does this mean we also have the monday, or that the video ends deadline is at Sunday 11:59 PM London time.

I would seriously consider calling them if you haven't been matched yet. Unless they've been in touch and said specifically that there'll be a delay..

Don't stress about it - think of it like the AWA topic in the GMAT where just showing critical reasoning is the most important thing. Mine was something about AI which I know the square root of F***al about.

I got this question too, didn't understand about what they want me to tell neither. I just paraphrased the story, and said that I agreed with the author... Then he asked me how to get the audience's attention...

But it seems that they evaluate overall interview process, not give score for each question...

Interview Feedback-

The matching was superlative - the interviewers' experience and skill-sets were very similar to mine.

The interviewer was really well prepared. They had a long list of notes and questions. They had also prepared several follow up questions.

It was a tough interview, on the border between a negotiation and a stress test.

However, post the interview (they stopped recording and said we are done now) we had a long chat about the industry in general and I really enjoyed conversing with the interviewer in general.

Finished my interview a couple of days ago. As someone said earlier, expect the inerviewer to be prepped with detailed notes about your app and specific weaknesses /holes. I got a few standard questions about team/leadership stories, but mainly it was an enjoyable experience, lasted less than an hour.

I emailed the adcom, and they confirmed that decisions will ONLY be released on the 21st. Now the long wait begins...

I got done with my interview today. My interviewer is at the CEO position, and is from my industry only. We had a good discussion on how the industry is going through disruptions and changes. He had gone through my application very well. Overall, it was a good experience. It was great to hear about his LBS experience and he advised me on a number of things. Let's see what happens on 21st November! :)

I asked this in Cambridge forum but never got a response, so here goes again - has anybody here applied to the Cambridge /LBS /Insead trifecta? Coz I received my offer from cambridge yesterday, but they only gave me till the 23rd to accept . Which is just too close to the LBS and Insead decisions for comfort..

Hi Subirroy,
Same position as you. I guess we have 3 weeks to think about it and then a day to decide based on actual outcome...
