Do you have any interview tips?

The one on one interview was all questions about my experience with - can you name a time you worked in a team, solved a problem, had to settle a disagreement etc.
A presentation on a year in industry was requested, if a year in industry had not been completed then it was on final year projects, and a group task was done where a discussion about a problem had to be completed, tips for this is to allow everyone to have there say, listen when people are talking, have an input and try to work together and not against each other.
