That's not really true. Any interviewer worth his salt would be able to tell in 5 minutes whether you had actually done what you said you had.
Some medical schools rely on that approach. SGUL prefer documentation. I went to a medical careers conference at the start of September and several of the speakers (admissions tutors from various places) said that they were moving towards formal verification rather than relying on interviewers picking up issues. Perhaps they don't consider that they are worth their salt as interviewers

I guess it enables them to chuck a few out pre-interview (albeit at the expense of more paperwork), and a few will get through every year by lying.

But I dislike the idea of being forced to prove you've done something. The experiences you've gained from it are the important thing, so ultimately they should be what is focused on, unless the people suspect someone of lying in individual cases, rather than blanket assuming everyone is lying and making them prove it.

It's the same with the applications for Foundation training - 10% of all applications are randomly audited and applicants are asked for proof of the experiences they've used in the responses to the questions (scenario / competency type questions). The markers can also request verification from any additional applicants as they see fit. There's not a whole lot of trust in the process.
