    I didn't get any medical ethics questions, but I did write my IB extended essay on medical ethics, which I'd briefly explained in my personal statement. They asked me to summarise how I made my argument.
    Oooh ok so was it just on ps and bmat essay ??

    I had mine a few days ago, try not to panic! You'll be sat in a room with the other applicants for a while before you interview, so my advice would be to TALK! Of course you're going to be nervous when you get to the uni so this is a really good way to calm down before going into the interview.
    You'll be given your BMAT essay so read through that in the time you have before the interview. Think about what you'd like to change or add if you didn't get time to finish your essay.
    I had a really lovely panel and they weren't intimidating at all! I had 3 interviewers, but one was an observer who just listened and took notes. I know some people came back and said that their observer was yawning and looking around bored, but I think that was just meant to test whether they would be distracted, so try not to be put off if a similar thing happens in your interview - it does not mean you're doing badly!
    In terms of advice for prepping for any medical school interview: look at the news, think about your work experience, consider what skills you have and what skills doctors should have and of course, why that uni and why medicine.
    Lastly, good luck! And good luck to anyone else reading this as well. I hope this has helped you a bit, try to stay as calm as much as possible so you'll be able to think logically through the questions they ask you! Oh and if you're still panicking, about 70% of those interviewed get offers, so if you've got this far you've got a pretty good chance of getting in!

    because I messed up on one paper and at the beginning of the year and throughout summer I had to do mocks for A2 units to get the prediction and the department had a discussion 😁
