Yes.

Learn you r statement of competency on your application as this is what they want to know. Or if like me your mind goes to mush listen to the questions and make it up as you go along :slgo: Ideally have some backup's just in case :slgo:

Good luck

I thought they wanted to hear something different to the competency statements, is this correct?

They can do one of three things.

1 Ask you only about the answers you have already given

2 Ask you about 1 or some of the answers you have given but also ask for other examples on some.

3 Just ask for other examples.

2 and 3 are the most likely however, so what BP states is valid. Make sure you can remember the answers you gave but have other examples ready.

When I had my interview, they got me to expand on the answers i'd already given and give other examples of what i'd done.
