    You'll see after your interview. For most stations I'd agree with them, but some of them you will know if you've done ****...and I know I got zero
    Ahh now as soon as i get to that station I will smile and feel the gloom Is it quiet early on? (just checking so my confidence isn't destroyed for the rest)

    You'll probably find it easy, I just screwed up There are other stations that may be more challenging, it was just something I personally found difficult, but others may excel

    And the way it works is everyone in your group of 8 is given a number (1-8), that is your starting position and then you move round from 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-1 I really wouldn't get concerned, I'm just venting a little because all was going well until that one! (but as I say, others found it decent, its really dependent on your skill set and what you are good at !) Good luck, and dont be too nervous! The day as a whole was really enjoyable, and the interview itself was quite fun at times!

    It is only me really It isn't that bad really, I'm just a bit dense We can't tell you what it is, but it's nothing you should be worried about I'm more frustrated because on that station I didn't perform to the best of my ability, but 1/8 isn't THAT bad...i hope
    any chance it was the one to do with data analysis? sounds like the one everyone hated most on here lol

    Thanks a lot

    You're sounding confident, I have a feeling you may have your offer within a week or two. Fingers crossed

    Just to clarify guys, as I don't want to accidentally worry people:

    There is nothing absurdly difficult in these MMI's! They are challenging, like most interviews, but are a lot more varied As there are 8 stations, most candidates are bound to find one or 2 particularly challenging, and 1 or 2 that are comparably pretty decent! We all have different skills and find different things easy/hard; there is no 'station of doom', I was just saying about how I personally found one station insanely hard! For some of the people in my group they really liked this station and they hated one I liked! It's not as simple as there being 'hard' and 'easy' stations, just ones that we as individuals find more challenging given our skill set!

    Good luck

    Cheers mate, I'd love an early offer but due to my cataclysmic failure on one of the tasks I can't see myself being one of the lucky few that gets an early christmas present

    I dont care when my offer comes, it could be the 31st march or even after results day! I just want one

    Good luck to you, the reason I maybe sound confident is that despite some sections of my interview being...less than perfect, I really enjoyed the day, met some nice people and had a good time

    I found that ok but I DESPISED number 5...I think I got 0 on it haha

    Station 5 was absolutely dreadful..... none of the others seemed too bad in comparison
    All of the people from my group also struggled with it so that gives me some reassurance

    Oh wow thank the lord, HAALALLLLLEUELFGWIF GIWGFGSG IFFWG FJAH!! I've been stressing out absolutely loads over that station as I completely flopped on it!! I think I did worse than almost everyone (i.e.. I got between 1 and 0...)BUT if that's the station everyone did badly on...maybe my epic failure wont be quite as epic?!?! Here's hoping My favourite station by a mile was number 6, really enjoyed that one!

    are there any stations where they ask about you as a person (e.g. work ex) or is it purely just on things that aren't specific to you?

    Hey there I enjoyed the interview overall today and some stations went pretty well but there was one where I think I got zero...do you think I've still got a chance if I completely failed 1 of the stations but all the rest were at least 'alright'?

    Just gutted that I crumbled for that one when all the rest I performed pretty much as well a I could have! (doesnt mean I performed that well )
    You've definitely got a chance! Every station is worth the same

    I probably got a 0 as well as I did not even finish in time.
    My favourite station was 3, at least I think that's what the number was...it was empathy-based

    Well hopefully one poor station doesn't negate the rest of it! Same here
