Thanks for the replies everyone! That’s interesting to hear.
Tudor_Queen it was a funded PhD which the university were interviewing 5-6 people for for 1 place unfortunately, so if I don’t get it i can’t look for extra funding or anything, that’ll be that- but thank you for the advice :)

I guess it all boils down to how the other candidates performed on the day and maybe a little on what their opinions were of everyone before the interviews- hate this waiting game to hear back it’s so nerve wracking! Hopefully this time in 5 days I’ll know!

Hi everyone,

I had an interview for a PhD position today, which I was told I would hear back about by the end of next week. I find it hard to tell how the interview went- a few questions I feel I didn't answer properly that I can't put out of my head but overall it was okay.

I was just wondering if anyone had any insight into how much your application/CV/experience/qualifications count for in comparison to the interview when the lecturers are making a decision on the best candidate? For example, let's say the university interview 5 people today, and hypothetically I had the best application but performed 3rd best in the interview- would they automatically give it to the person they thought answered their questions the best, or would everything be taken into account? Or does this really depend on the university?

Thanks in advance!!
