Our secure interviews can complete 2 parts of the application in 1 exam. However, our graduate level interview has the ability for further customization, especially if sponsored by the institution. Here’s a breakdown of what happens during the Vericant Interview and Writing Sample:

The Graduate Vericant Interview

This 16-18 minute session uses behavioral questions similar to those in K-12 and undergraduate interviews. For institution-sponsored interviews, we can tailor and create program-specific sessions to better match applicants to programs.

The Graduate Vericant Writing Sample

A 30-minute typed essay assesses an applicant’s English writing skills, offering a choice between an analytical or practical prompt. For in-person tests, desktop computers are available at select locations.

Partner institutions are able to confidently require a secure interview solution that is specific to their program needs. Optionally, the Vericant Writing Sample can be included to better understand applicant motivations, character, and writing abilities.
