This question came up in the set venn diagram test. Out of 120 students, those with ID's that are even numbers are doing Physics, and all with ID's divisible by 5 are doing Chemistry, and all with ID's divisible by 7 are doing Maths. How many are doing Physics AND Maths? How many are doing Maths and Chemistry? How many are doing neither subject? etc..

It is sooo off putting to have to stare at yourself at a camera while you talk to it live so you cannot even change if you froze and got nervous. It is completely horrific because with an interview at least you are talking to them but that was literally the worst interview of my life. Video interviews are not for me. I think if I couldn't see the camera it would have been better or if I was talking to a real person. I just actually cannot believe that after 4 years at university and getting a first I can confidently say I am probably never get a graduate job. fabulous. Less

What have you done in a new situation where you have to produce something but do not have a lot of ideas on a specific matter and how would you deal with the situation (not the exact question but something in a similar line).
