    @anitasingh hi and welcome to scope, I think the answer would be that almost everybody finds the experience different.
    Some advice, if you kept a copy of your application have a good read through it, make notes of any points you feel you must get across, and try and avoid yes and no answers to the questions, you can have somebody with you but they in most cases won't be able to get involved.
    And make sure if its your mobile that its fully charged.
    Good luck and let us know how it goes.

    2024 Election won
