It all depends on what you would like to do. I could've gone to university but job opportunities are very slim because there isnt many jobs out there with a good future

Be yourself and answer the questions honestly, make sure you pay attention in the interviews/group tasks and ask questions you want to know the answers too. They want people to be keen
