Riccardo Mario Barnard

Interviewer

Academic interests...

Game theory, behavioural Economics and environmental economics.


What I wish I'd known before my Oxbridge interviews...

The importance of student presentation and discussions with the interviewer, rather than just saying a correct answer. In my opinion, it is very important to actively engage with the interviewer and demonstrate an ability to learn through the process


Extra-curricular interests...

Football, gym, tutoring and travelling.


Previous interviewing and tutoring experience

I have been tutoring as an Oxbridge Applications specialist and Economics tutor for a number of companies this year during my MPhil. In terms of interview preparations, I have covered both pure Economics and Economics & Management. The interviews are based off of past questions adapted to recent research or specific areas of Economics (climate change, network effects, game theory etc). I have a number of brainteasers and mathematical questions that I have designed to get incrementally harder, to simulate an interview.
