BM6: Medicine Interview – How I prepared.

Step 1: Read your personal statement.

Step 2: Read up about the university – what are they proud of? What do they strive to do? What features of the course make you perfect for it and it perfect for you?

Step 3: Write a list of everything you want them to know about you by the end of the interview.

Step 4: Find a list of typical medical school questions (try here, here, here and here.)

Step 5: Answer each question working in one of the points on your list from step 3. Then answer it again using a different point. This may seem stupid at first, but it will get you used to answering random questions and also fitting questions to the answers you want to give, working in the details that you want to get across.

This is all I did! It seemed to work for me haha. Remember they’re not there to trick you, or to confuse you. If you don’t understand a question, ask what they meant (I did!). They’d prefer you to ask for clarification and answer the right question then make no sense at all.

Relax. It will be over so quickly you won’t believe and I don’t even remember most of mine!

Good luck.
