Recent Students’ Interview Plans
Applying to read Medicine at Clare College, Cambridge
Callum applied to read Medicine at Clare College, Cambridge in 2016. He started preparing with UniAdmissions in early November (as soon as he finished studying for the BMAT). This gave him enough time to work through the online resources and then arrange his 4 mock interviews a few days, ensuring optimal preparation.Callum went on to get offers from Cambridge, UCL, Imperial and Cardiff and is now a medical student at Cambridge.
Callum is interviewed by Jonas who is a Doctor that recently graduated from Cambridge. Jonas presents Callum with scientific questions, stretching his current A-level knowledge and applying his understanding to novel situations in order to answer a tricky question (Why does radiotherapy work?). Jonas helps Callum through the problem, giving tips on thinking logically through unfamiliar scientific problems and situations for the future.
Interview 1 - Scientific
Callum’s second interview is with Millie who is a final year medical student at Cambridge. She tests Callum on a variety of situational questions and probes into his reasons for studying medicine. Callum has to think on his feet to answer challenging questions like “Why aren’t you applying for sciences if you like science so much?” After the interview, Millie goes through how to avoid falling into common traps and the basic principles to apply in a variety of situations.
Interview 2 - Situational Questions & Motivation
Callum’s third mock interview is with Zenab who is a Cambridge graduate now a practicing doctor. Since Callum already had a good theoretical knowledge of medical ethics, she probes him on more uncomfortable territory (“When is okay to kill a patient?”) to illustrate the wide range of ethical questions that can arise. After the interview, Zenab helps Callum formulate a fool-proof framework for answering ethics questions and common dilemmas.
Interview 3 - Ethics Questions
With MMIs now increasingly popular, Heather helps Callum with Cardiff MMI interview. Heather splits the 60 minute session into several smaller segments and conducts short 5-8 minute mock interviews focussing on multiple varied topics that test Callum in lots of different situations (e.g. Tell Mr Smith he has 3 months to live). After the mock interviews, Callum gets to consolidate knowledge that he’s worked on over the last month to ensure he’s ready for his set of real interviews.
Interview 4 - MMI Style
Applying to read Medicine at Birmingham
Gemma applied to read Medicine at Birmingham University in 2015. She wanted a more intense preparation period and so started preparations with UniAdmissions 2 weeks before her interview day. She got 3 offers from Birmingham, King’s College and Imperial and is now a 2nd year at Birmingham.
As Gemma was closer to her interviews and started preparations already, the first session was a conventional interview designed to highlight strengths and weaknesses. Naomi who is an Oxford medical graduate undertook the first interview session. Following the mock interview, Naomi was then able to give specific feedback and allow us to tailor the subsequent interviews on topics that would give Gemma the most benefit.
Interview 1- Conventional
Branavan- who is one of our medical tutors now practicing medicine- presented Gemma with content from the first year of medical school to see how she applied her A-level knowledge to tackle information just beyond her curriculum. She was given tips and tricks for the best way to approach these questions and how best to work with the interviewer to reach her conclusions.
Interview 2- Novel Scientific Material
In this session Gemma was interviewed on the NHS, the profession and some difficult situational and ethical questions relating to the these by Madhi who is a 3rd year medical student at Cambridge. Madhi pushed Gemma’s limits of reasoning and argument and was able to give some advice regarding further reading and other situations to consider the answers to.
Interview 3- NHS & the Profession
MMIs are a great way to cover several topics in one session, as well as give Gemma some time pressure to help refine her answers further. Sarina, currently a 4th year medical student, worked through several topics that covered things that Gemma was comfortable with and not, giving her an opportunity to apply the skills she’d been working on over the last fortnight.
