    Looking back at your previous education, which class did you find most challenging, and why?

      How to Answer

      Interviewers ask this question to gain a better understanding of your education and the challenges you faced during your time at school. When answering this question, think back to your school days and focus on a subject that you found tested your abilities the most, and was difficult for you to grasp. Interviewers want to know why you found it challenging and how you have improved in this area.

      "When I was at school the one subject I really struggled with was Geography. I have always found it difficult to grasp this subject and my knowledge of the topic was limited and hard for me to understand. This was the one class I struggled with, and therefore I took additional studies outside of school to further my knowledge and prepare me for my exams."

      "The subject I find most challenging in my A levels is biology due to the expansive amount of content. However, I find it fascinating and therefore, I am determined to work my way through it and tackle it. In order to do so, I find it helpful to rely on peer supporters, where we work together to test each other on knowledge and brainstorm topics together to really enhance our learning. I also find it helpful to be as practical as possible, since I'm a kinesthetic learner. A good example of this is when I'm learning the anatomy of the heart I draw out a diagram, and color code and label it; this helps me engage a lot better. I am aware veterinary medicine also has an expansive amount of content that is hard to conquer, but I am confident that knowing what learning styles suit me will help alleviate the course's intensity."

      The way you approach this question with a positive mindset is great! You found the Biology A-level classes challenging; however, fascinating at the same time. Relying on peer supports and other resources shows that you are an avid learner ready to tap into various resources to achieve your goals. Excellent decision to include a sample of your learning style. The interviewer will get to know you from a new perspective through this answer.

      "The class that I found most challenging was Calculus. The first time I took the course, I did not pass, I kept trying to improve by trying to practice different problems and going to tutoring. I still did not understand the information. The second time I took the class I was able to understand why and how to do the problems not just try to memorize the steps. I also spent time talking with the professor and tutors to ensure that I improved. I ended up receiving a B in the class. Although I did not get an A I was very proud of myself for improving as much as I did."

      "I struggled with parts of the theory included in physics. I didn’t understand it as quickly as I followed the other sciences, so I had to spend more time learning it. However, I persevered and was very successful in this area due to my hard work. I used a variety of different books/online sources to create my notes, which suited me. I then made flashcards of the essential points and regularly revised both of these."

      "One subject that I had challenges with was organic chemistry. I had to take this class as a two-semester requirement. I struggled in the first semester to grasp the concepts of the small changes to molecules through chemical reactions. In the second semester, I had a new teacher and was also lucky to have a tutoring program called SI (supplemental Instruction)that worked exclusively with this class. I committed to attending all of the tutoring sessions, which helped me better grasp the material in fun ways. It helped me get a whole grade higher than in my previous semester."

      Rachelle's Answer

      Good for you, committing to all of the tutoring sessions. You are certainly determined and unafraid of hard work!

      "I found general chemistry very difficult. When I took this class, I did not know how to study yet, and this was the first time I ever had trouble in school. So, I had to change my study habits. This class humbled me. When I got into organic chemistry, I had a much easier time."

      Rachelle's Answer

      The interviewer should be happy to hear that you corrected and improved your study habits. Can you speak further about what you did to improve?
