    Does anyone know whether QUB's MMIs will have anything based on personal statement? Thanks

    Guys if your MMI is 10 stations long and you really mess up one of them, is there still a chance of an offer? I had my Dundee interview today, and it was going swimmingly well until my last station, then I panicked on the very last question of my interview and sounded very "non-empathetic", and I would probably say a little unethical... I'm so worried this goes against me 😔 I didn't mean it...

    Congrats on getting an interview! My interview in Dundee was on the 7th December and I think it went well although it's quite hard to tell! Don't worry about it because in the briefing, we were told that there are some current medical students who scored highly in other stations but REALLY messed up in one or two stations, and obviously still got in! So just try to put it out of your head!

    Hey, did anyone attended any course here? ISC or Ace or any other course? If yes, how did you find it?

    No, Ekno has got the wrong idea. It's more advanced calculus and integration using trigonometric operations, you know the easy stuff 😝

    I've heard they give you simple sums like 12 X 12 and then ask you how you did it, and how you could do it another way...

    Has anybody got any predictions as to what the Bristol medical school MMI interview stations will be based around?

    It's so confusing to practice for something we know very little about.

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    From past threads i'm guessing that they'll ask us stuff about our work experience and maybe PS in some stations? There will probs be acting ones as well

    What are some major issues that have occurred at the NHS previously that we should know about?
    Such as the Francis report?

    Francis report is a good one. Health and social care act 2012, shape of training review, junior dr contracts, 7 day nhs, postcode lottery etc etc.

    Hello! See this thread here for advice on Leicester interviews! We answered someone else who had the same question .

    On the Birmingham Medicine website, if you scroll down to the section named 'The Interview' you'll find a link to this page (it's actually a PDF which you can download or view in your browser). It really goes in-depth, and into great detail about the different kinds of stations, and what you'll be assessed on - so definitely have a thorough read of the whole document, and try and prepare for all the types of stations mentioned by doing lots of practice!

    Why not use our free interview question bank here, which has worked questions and answers.

    We hope this helps,

    The Medic Portal

    Hello,

    Bristol has 10, 5 minutes per station and 1 minute to read the question/scenario. There'll be 40 applicants, 2 groups of 20, 2 rotations of the 10 MMIs occurring at one time.

    Bristol focuses a lot on your extra curricular and there will almost certainly be one specifically on work experience due to the fact you have to fill in the form for the MMIs. Just make sure you have an answer to Why Bristol/why this course. Knowledge of current developments in Medicine and understand how to approach an unknown question on ethics. Keep up to date on what's in the news. Obviously, that's just general prep really but it works for Bristol.

    Also your overall impression is important, so don't panic and stay confident. The interviewer has zero knowledge of your personal statement. If you have an interview you have what they want, now you have to show the interviewer. Yah, that's my advice. Good luck!

    EDIT: Reflection! Reflection is key, Bristol love it. It's all well and good that you've done it but what have you learnt/what skills have you developed/why is it important etc etc
