There are clearly peaks and troughs but far more busy periods than not!

5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?

As said, if you didn't do a job, it wouldn't get done and the company would genuinely struggle without you!

6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

Not many things within your degree are that applicable to working life. However, the skills you gain from working life can be taken into final year at University!
