    What are the chances?! There's a book written by ISC interview questions and answers second edition, having had my interview I can't disclose questions. However, that will really help and has all the bases covered

    is that what you mainly used to prepare if you don't mind me asking? hope your interview went well? Also, you know they ask you to upload your GCSE certificates, do they want any other certificates uploaded like confirming the qualifications you put into ucas like d of e?

    I know that UG and GEM interviews are a bit different but from what I've seen on here about UG interviews and from what my GEM interview invite letter says there seems to be some similarities and was wondering if anyone with some KCL experience could give me a bit of info?

    Just general things really ....

    If you've had an interview with KCL with an ethical dilemma/issue, what kind of things was it about? (I'm trying to gauge whether it would be current affairs or general ethical issues like euthanasia etc.)

    If anyone has experienced their MMI format - I know unlike some MMI unis it isn't really stations with tasks but more like mini interviews and was wondering if any of you seasoned interviewees (!! - I've only had one interview my entire life haha!!) had any tips?

    Thanks in advance for any help and good luck to all UG and GEM applicants to KCL and other places

    Hi,
    The KCL GPEP interview is MMI...
    We're not actually allowed to say too much about it as your made to sign a piece of paper but sessentially it's 8 stations of 5 minutes long in duration.
    There are 2 ethics stations - Nothing particularily hard it's more like how you think. You get time to prepare before hand. One more ethics and more current events
    The other 6 stations are the obvious stuff really you'd expect in any interview (why medicine etc)... Unlike St Georges the MMI here the interviewers do speak back to you after you've answered the question so be prepared to be quick with some answers
    I really enjoyed it and was completely myself - And now I'm here. I screwed up on one station royally, but just laughed it off.
    Just show them you have a personality and you're not a robot. Everyone is from such different backgrounds.
    Hope that is of some help

    I did use that book a lot! Erm the way I uploaded was scanning the documents and attaching them to a message to the college via the portal? (I didn't do DofE) I think it went well I hope they thought so too good luck for yours!

    This is really helpful, thank you I don't know if you're allowed to answer much more about the interview but just wonder/checking whether that means they're less likely to have stations where you have to break news to an actor/pack a suitcase etc?

    Do you find out about interviews on the portal or by post/email?

    Also... when you got your portal login, did you have to fill in any forms or anything like that?

    Kings called my school and told them my application is incomplete and I'm really worried

    On the portal, check it regularly as I didn't get an email update. I don't think you do, I can't remember any. Best of luck!!

    Guys I got an interview (yay!) but when I accept it and press submit, and then go back to the page, it doesn't say I've accepted it, just refreshes so I don't know if they know I've accepted it or not. Should I ring or has this happened to others too?

    the whole process of doing the tasks before + the interview takes 45mn, and you can leave straight after
