    Got an offer today after an endless week of waiting So happy!

    A tip for the interview... Show all your reasoning for BMAT and ethical scenario on the spot (and be honest, I said that after the BMAT I thought the point I made was not so good) and be confident while speaking, don't mumble and look the interviewers in their eyes. And smile a bit And don't worry if there's something more you could say, I definitely didn't say all I could! Best of luck!

    I had 2 questions you could consider ethical scenarios, one was definitely prepared in advance by the interviewers but wasn't ethical per se, rather refering to administrational side of issues, the other was a question they must have come up with on the spot while I was talking about my hospice volunteering. ISC book is quite a good preparation for the ethical scenarios, but rather than learning the answers (which makes no sense) try to see the pattern in which they questions are analyzed. But you also shouldn't treat it like a Bible for medicine applicants, I only got my copy one day before the actual interview and read just a little bit of Q&A part (I wanted to learn more about NHS etc. since I'm international applicant) and perhaps I would have answered the questions exactly the same without it. And BE CONFIDENT, 60-70% of people get offers so you absolutely shouldn't freak out about showing your best etc. because you most probably won't. When you can't think of an answer, admit it. Perhaps you could say why you can't think of one. Hope I helped a bit, and even if your interview is already over, someone else will benefit Good luck!

    EDIT: Also, for ethical questions they ask, try to think of advantages of disadvantages of any given approach, whether it would always work out the same or depending on other factors, where applicable think of short-run vs long-run consequences of your decisions.

    I'll just add my contribution... my interview had 2 questions on the bmat, 4 from my PS and about 2 set questions (the kind of questions you find in the ISC medical book). Then they asked if I had any questions, then the interview finished

    Also Brenda cross said in the talk beforehand that some of us may get ethical scenarios that are current at the time.

    I would say it was mostly PS + BMAT, just a couple of other questions, I was not asked about NHS structure or current issues (although I mentioned I knew the surgeons' mortality rate was an actual issue, not just made up for BMAT) but perhaps that's because I'm an international applicant and they just assumed I didn't really have to know much about it.
