Tough Interview Questions

Job review company Glassdoor have compiled a list of the toughest interview questions by country. Here are the toughest from the UK for 20...

You know you're at university when ( 21 - 40 )

21. You sleep more in lecture halls than in your room

22. Your idea of a square meal is a box of Pop-Tarts.

23. You travel with bags of dirty clothes.

24. You go home to do your laundry because you're too poor to pay at the laundrette.

25. You pay money for a book you never read once.

26. More than 20% of your household furniture is made from palettes.

27. You recognize the meat in the soup as yesterday's roast, and thus decide to eat a nice bowl of cereal - a safe bet for any meal.

28. You use words like "thus".

29. You throw out bowls and plates because you don't feel like washing them.

30. It takes preparation... and 3 people... to take out your rubbish.

31. Going to the library is a social event.

32. You wear flip flops in the shower.

33. You start joining clubs because of the free food.

34. Visits home depend on how much money you have for petrol.

35. You skip one class to write a paper for another.

36. You have no idea where your tuition money is going.

37. Bicycles don't seem as lame as they used to.

38. You stay up late to finish homework then sleep through the class in which it was due.

39. Your rucksack is giving you scoliosis.

40. You've written a cheque for 45 pence.


  1. actually, #39 was more true for me in high school. lol

  2. Yes, I think it's a growing problem. And it's going to get worse, especially now that children are expected to lug laptops around with them too.

    (I hope you don't have a bad back.)

  3. Nah, i don't (thankfully), but i carried all of the day's books with me (3 or four generally) most of the day until my Senior year, because the locker was too inconvenient to visit. I kind of miss it though, it kept me in shape. I started gaining weight at college, because i'm WAY more sedentary. All my classes are a 5 min walk away (my campus is smaller than my high school campus)and i spend most of my free time on the computer u_u. Been exercising lately though.

  4. Glad to hear it. I got a dog. ;-)
