Haha I don't think so!! The PhD program is extremely competitive!

Has anyone else gone to a competitive PhD interview that's requested a similar presentation?

I'm currently an undergrad, have been invited to a PhD interview, but the interview also includes a 10 minute presentation on my previous research experience. I have zero idea how to approach this. Here is how they have described it:
"The panel will expect you to prepare a brief presentation (no more than 10 minutes) about your past research experience and any research projects in which you have been involved. This will enable us to determine your aptitude for research, as well as your motivation for taking on a PhD and your wider knowledge of the field."
I have only completed two pieces of real research previously, and only one of those is slightly relevant to the PhD project I'm applying for. What am I meant to say about the research? Am I meant to present it like I was at an academic conference (aims, methods, results etc) or am I meant to tell them the specific skills I gained from it that will make me a good PhD student? I've got literally no idea how to structure this, what points I should hit on etc... Can anyone help?! I'm terrified of going in, barking up the wrong tree, and completely embarrassing myself.
