這是大學面試錦囊系列 (Tips on University Entrance Interviews)1輯—Eight Tips for Every University Entrance Interview (面試八項注意) 
1. Be on time. Beginning: Say “Good morning/Good afternoon/Hello” to your interviewers.  Ending: (1) Ask a meaningful question you prepare before the interview.  (2) Remember to thank the interviewers before leaving the room (Thank you very much.  It’s nice to meet you.).
2. Follow the dress code.  Be decent in dress. (穿得雅觀)
3. Smile occasionally.(偶爾笑笑)Aim for an alert(機警), pleasant(令人偷快,吾好死老竇咁樣), and open (開放的)appearance.
4. Keep it conversational (答問時要好似平日講野咁講,但要得體禮貌版).Do you sound rehearsed(答問時唔好唸書咁念).
5. Ask for an opportunity. (為自己爭取機會) State your desire to attend the university.  Be specific as to why you consider yourself a promising student.(你為何想入你申請的大學?你為何覺得自己適合?沒有找資料?沒有想清楚?請先行找資料及想清楚。)
6. Accentuate the positive.(避重就輕。不是不誠實,也不要講大話,但上帝沒有要求你連心胸有紅痣都要告訴你的admission officers,你博同情?對唔住,admission officers唔會欣賞。長大啦,對答成熟啦。EQ=圓熟和智慧)Put negative aspects in the best light.(如果admission officer要你說一項缺點,不要說我的缺點是記性不好(這等於參選香港小姐的女孩被人哄出自己的參選動機是名和利一樣愚蠢)。你可以將優點當作缺點的說(例:我對科學興趣濃厚,以致較少留意時事,我覺得應該改善。)或將缺點聯繫你的優點(例:我傾向分析事物和嘴嚼資料背後的涵義,學習時較少側重記憶,我覺得應該改善這一點。)
7a. Are you able to shift the conversation to those areas/subjects you have the most to talk about? (能夠將話題轉到你知得最多的課題嗎?)7b. Be specific in giving details.  (不要抽象地肯定自己,要提出具體事實肯定自己。)7c. Don’t try to cover too much.  Just the subjects/areas where you think you are strongest.(不要講得太多,講你覺得最強的幾個領域就足夠。)Your school subject grades(校內成績)?  Your extra-curricular activities(課外活動)?  Teachers’ recommendations(老師推薦)?
8.  Never give monologs.  (這個和第四點相似,你答問時如果在唸書,就會唸非所問地獨白,獨白就會答得太長。)Ideal answers are from 30 seconds to two minutes.  Your interviews should be a 75-25 conversation.(理想答案的長度是30秒至兩分鍾。面試時,你應佔大約六成說話時間。不要有你說無人說,這不是交流。)

修辭立其誠 (Always remain completely frank and honest)

不過,interview旨在讓admission officers了解 applicant,也讓applicant了解自己報讀的大學。所以,事前準備、表達的技巧和條理雖然重要,但真誠更重要。(Should you strive to tell the admission committee what you think they want to hear, or give the committee an idea of who you are and how you think?)
