How I found the Online Assessment aspect of my Application to the Maths Scholarship
The online assessment at first seemed a little overwhelming at first thought, as it was something new. However, the experience was completely the contrary of what was expected. The assessors were absolutely lovely and made the assessment as comfortable as possible. In particular, during COVID, I definitely felt more at ease being home, as opposed to travelling.
The only part that was difficult, was looking at the camera! You tend to easily forget to do so during an assessment, as you’re looking down at the screen to see the Assessors. This may not appear professional, since making eye contact with them means you must look at the camera directly instead.
Overall, a big thumbs up for the Online Assessment!
