  • Common Interview Questions

    Medical school interviews are notoriously difficult but they don’t have to be – fortunately, a lot of interview questions are very common and almost always asked e.g. “Why medicine?” or “Why this university?“.  Thus, the students that don’t get in, tend to be the ones that didn’t prepare adequately and were hoping to just ‘wing it’ on the day.

    We will spend a significant part of the morning discussing and perfecting your answers to both these questions before moving onto other commonly asked questions like “Why not nursing?” or “Where do you see yourself in 10 years time?“. We will use these questions to introduce you to powerful strategies for approaching new interview questions that you haven’t encountered before. This will provide you a solid framework from which to logically answer unexpected questions.

  • Medical Ethics Workshop

    When it comes to medical ethics, most students usually fall into two categories: one who don’t bother preparing it and the other who read several medical ethics textbooks. Rather counter-intuitively, the second approach isn’t that much better than the first.

    At your stage, you just need a simple and basic understanding of the ethical principles and be able to apply them to a variety of scenarios. We will show you several examples of how to tackle ethical scenarios using a fool-proof system to ensure you don’t miss any points or fall into any obvious traps set by the interviewer.

  • Situational Questions Workshop

    Situational questions are extremely common and chances are that you will be asked one at your interview e.g. Give me a situation when you showed good communication skills. Like the other type of questions asked at medical interviews – there is also a reliable framework that you can use to answer 90% of these questions, that we will teach you. Although some of these questions may appear quite challenging e.g. “What would you do if you found your consultant was smelling of alcohol in the morning?” they are actually very easy once you develop a logical method of approaching them.

    You are likely to be given materials (texts, images, graphs, models) to examine and interpret in your interview. These aren’t designed to test knowledge but a test of your ability to think laterally and generate novel ideas. Thus, your tutor will expose you to a variety of unknown materials so that you have a solid framework on how to approach them.

  • The Key to Interview Success

    The key to interview success is to know why they are used in the first place; you have to stop treating them as an an annoying barrier that has to be crossed. Instead look at it as an oral exam that tests your communication skills and commitment to Medicine.

    Our senior medical tutor discuss what medical schools look for when interviewing applicants – and then teach strategies for demonstrating these qualities.

  • Individual Mock Interviews

    This is an invaluable opportunity to put everything that you’ve learned into practice. You get two individual mock interviews with different medical tutors. At the end of each mock interview, you are given detailed written and oral feedback along with suggestions for improvement.

  • Full MMI Circuit

    An increasing number of medical schools are now using Multiple Mini-Interviews (MMIs). These type of interviews are not anything to be frightened of and if anything – more predictable than the traditional panel interviews. For example, you can guarantee that there will be a station assessing your commitment to medicine and one assessing your awareness of medical ethics. This is your chance to get to experience a full MMI circuit – something no other company out there will do.

  • Comprehensive Resources

    You will get access to our exclusive Ultimate Medical School Interview Guide ebook – a 250 page textbook that contains everything you need to know for your medical school interviews. It contains model answers to 150 commonly asked questions and has detailed sections on MMIs, Oxbridge Interviews, Graduate interviews, Medical Ethics, the NHS and more. In addition, you also get unlimited ongoing tutor support so that you can contact your medical tutors after the course – right up until your interviews.

Common Questions

  • ``What materials and resources do you provide?``

    Everyone who attends our course gets an interview preparation guide that consists of strategies for tackling frequently asked questions, how to approach difficult questions, a guide to calculations or advancing arguments and a question bank consisting of previously asked interview questions.

  • ``The course I want to attend is fully booked- is there any way you can fit me in?``

    We get asked this a lot and regrettably we are unable to because of our commitment to keep group sizes manageable for our tutors. However, we can put you on the waiting list. To avoid disappointment, we recommend you book early or you can also look at our Individual Tuition.

  • ``The course isn't near me/I am not available on the course dates.``

    Don’t worry! We may be able to run a private course near you (at the same price!) if you can find 3 or more friends doing the same subject to join you. If that’s not possible then contact us and we will do our best to work something out.

  • ``Will this course help me prepare for Oxbridge medical interviews?``

    Whilst the skills you learn in this course can certainly be employed in Oxbridge medical interviews,  sitting through the round of MMI will be irrelevant as Oxford and Cambridge do not use these. If you’d like more focused preparation for Oxbridge medical interviews we would recommend you book onto our Oxbridge Interviews course.

  • ``What makes your course different to others?``

    Apart from our excellent tutors and materials, we are the only company who will guarantee small groups (always less than 12 students). As far as we know, no one else offers such intensive tuition in small groups at this price- most other courses will have 20+ students (sometimes up to 100!) which doesn’t really allow you to ask questions and direct the course to how you want it. Additionally, we offer 4 individual mock interviews and unique subject oriented tutorials throughout the day.

  • ``What is your cancellation policy if I haven't been invited for an interview?``

    We understand that booking a long time in advance for an interview course is a bit risky, especially if in the end you don’t get called in for interviews. That’s why we have a special cancellation policy for these courses. You will be entitled to a full refund provided you let us know at least 5 working days in advance. If you let us know less than 5 working days in advance then we unfortunately won’t be able to issue a refund.
