1. The student should plan the basics of their presentation well in advance and practice it many times over. They need to know if they are going to give a PowerPoint presentation or if they are going to use chart paper and make pictorial diagrams to aid their explanations.
2. They should find a good stationary store and purchase plenty of smart cards, chart paper, markers of different colours, sticky papers and pencils so that they can prepare their material.
3. They should start work on these presentation materials and make sure that they leave themselves with enough time to practice their presentation with the use of the charts and smart cards that they have prepared.
4. Make a list of all the questions that you think are going to be asked and that you know have been asked in the previous years, and prepare answers on the smart cards for them so that when the interviewer starts shooting the questions, you will be ready with the responses.
5. If you are making a PPT presentation all the charts and graphs are labelled and there is constancy in the fonts, colours and text. The slides should also switch at reasonable intervals so that the student is left with enough time for the explanation of the slides.
