    Apparently, they're sending out the interviews staggered over this week, so there is still hope for all of us who haven't got an interviews yet!

    I'd say there is hope for a lot of you out there, as I somehow managed to get an interview with a GAMSAT score of 55!!

    There are 28 places, 42 offers and 170 interview places. That's a 1 in 4 chance of an offer. GOOD LUCK!

    Do you know what the interviews are like?

    The MMI consists of 7 stations. Most stations will be discussion stations but it is expected that there will be as least one written station (there may be more).

    The precise details of the stations will be provided on the day but no specific preparation needs to be done in advance of the interview and appropriate equipment will be provided as necessary. Possible MMI stations might assess communication/values and attitudes, team working, ethics, healthcare awareness and insight, learning from caring contribution or work experience and numeracy in practice.
    Immediately before the ethics discussion station there will be an ethics preparation station where the candidates will have information to read and may, if they wish, make some notes to take with them into the discussion.

    • It is expected that each MMI station will last 6 minutes with a reminder after 5 minutes that 1 minute is remaining. After the station is complete there will be a 1 minute interval before starting the next station.

    Although there are 7 stations in the MMI only 6 students will be assigned to each MMI circuit. This is because no studentcan start at the ethics discussion station as the preparation station needs to be done first.

    Same score as me! It was the cut off last year. Did everyone get asked to fill a work experience form out?

    It says on the form that they are checking claims made on your personal statement. So I guess anything you covered in the PS needs to go on there.

    The lowest GAMSAT posted so far is 55, which is the same as last years cut off. Likely that it is the same this year.

    No information was given in the email, just a link to book your date and some forms to fill in and bring with.

    Good luck, here's hoping more go out tomorrow morning!
