I’m really happy because I just heard today that I’ve been invited for an interview at one of my other medical school choices. It’s at the end of this month, so not too far away. This one is more of a traditional interview with a panel of 2 interviewers and will last about 20 minutes, while the first one is MMI (multiple mini interviews) with 6 stations each lasting 6 minutes. I hope I hear from my other choices soon too.
Yesterday I had a mock interview at school, with three of my teachers. It was really good practice and I got some good feedback. They gave me some role play questions, some ethical dilemmas and some traditional questions. I was quite nervous and my mouth went dry really quickly, so I’ll make sure that I take a bottle of water with me for the real thing! I didn’t realise how long 6 minutes is until I had to pretend I’d hit the interviewer’s car and had to role play what I’d do. Some of the answers I gave were too long though, so I’ll have to try to time them better.
The Student room have posted information about what to expect at interviews at all the different medical schools. You can see what to expect here.
Here are some good interview questions that I found on the web. They have all been asked at medical school interviews recently.
