    Which one are you thinking of? My friends at school went on a couple, if its the same one I can tell you what they advised me
    Thanks
    I've heard of the isc course? I have an MMI interview so ideally the interview course has to be suited to MMI

    I was told its a waste of money and just a money making business. The ISC course covers everything that is already in the book which costs only £25 from waterstones/amazon. The updated 2nd edition has a dedicated section for the MMI interview. If you go into waterstones you can browse the section and see if it suits you but tbh the book is fantastic I think you'll be wasting your money on the course.

    The ace medicine course is not worth the money, it doesn't cover anything you can't find out for yourself from a good book. I had 3 interview books and the ISC book is by far the best, it covers absolutely everything apart from the recent news which you can get from the BBC website.

    hope this helps

    I was told that the ISC course people do not do mock interviews on the day at all. You'd be better off asking your friend or teacher to practice some mock questions and buy yourself a nice handbag or interview clothes with the money instead.

    tried to rep you too but have exceeded my limit for today

    I've been told the opposite, hand gestures are good as long as you don't overdo it....personally if I keep my hands under the table, I feel too compact and more conscious/nervous

    Yeah I've been lucky to have mock interviews with teachers but it's traditional

    Thanks

    I haven't applied for Barts but, if I were you, I would prepare by:

    ~ Carrying out background research on the article. For example, if the article is about a certain disease, I'd make sure that I know everything about that disease including symptoms, treatment, statistics, funding for treatment, etc.

    ~ Reading other articles on the same/similar topic.

    ~ Imagining I'm the interviewer and create a list of every possible question that could be asked about the article - prepare answers for those questions.

    Okay question: Should people who have self-inflicted diseases like liver disease from alcoholism or lung cancer from smoking, who have been told to change their behaviour to improve their health on 3 separate occasions, but have made no efforts to do so, pay for their own treatment and not on the NHS.

    Maybe theres a reason they can't improve their health... Maybe they need support from a team who will help the patient psychologically.. You can't just refuse to treat patients because they aren't improving..

    If they have been given as much support that can be given and they have still made no effort to improve their own health and their quality of life.

    If we only have one organ and the two people have been waiting just as long for it and are in equally bad conditions, however one is 20 and one is 70. Would it be wrong to give it to the 20 year old?
