    Anyone else on this date?

    Its my second POC, passed last year with a decent score but narrowly failed AIB. Any training questions; I'm all ears!


    Cheers

    Hi, how's it going?
    I've got my POC on the 11th-13th too and I'm fairly nervous about the essay writing.
    can you remember any examples of questions?

    cheers

    The one I answered was "Do video games help raise a generation of isolationists?" or words to that affect.

    There should be at least one you can relate to. Just make sure you get a good structure. e.g. Intro, point for, point against, point for point against, conclusion. That seemed to be mainly what they were looking for.

    I answered "Do celebrities deserve their privacy?"

    Also seem to remember "Should the UK renew its Trident missiles?"

    Relax. If you look around you can find plenty of questions people had on their POC. I was nervous about this too but it isn't a big deal as long as you're literate and vaguely intelligent.
