    Hey everyone!
    I am applying to medicine this year and I am about to start preparing for my interviews (that's me hoping that I will get at least one interview!). I couldn't find any Medicine Interview Prep thread for 2014 so I thought I will start one.
    As the application deadline approaching, more people will start sending off their applications. I'm starting this thread for those who want to start interview preparation as early as possible. Can I just emphasize that this thread is for interview preparation, not post-interview discussion. Please refrain from doing so as it is against TSR policy.

    ISC Medical School Interview Book:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Medical-Scho...8829215&sr=8-2
    I would highly recommend buying this book as I have been told it provides a lot of help with interviews. This seems like the most popular interview prep book among medicine applicants. (I just ordered mine )

    If you know of any other useful interview prep material, please share it as it will be useful for other people too.

    Sharing is caring

    Lets all hope that all our hard work pays off !! Good luck future Doctors!

    Hi I started thinking about interviews yesterday as well. The isc website is quite good as well, they have about 200 possible questions. Some are quite hard, glad I didn't decide to rely on my charm and charisma for interviews!

    I don't need to prep for interviews because I just have an all-round amazing personality. However, my main (probably only) weakness is that I'm a bit too humble, so I'm definitely going to work on my lack self-belief before the interview season starts!

    *EDIT* I'm glad one person found it funny...

    Subbed! I don't think I come across well in interviews. It's either I'm repeating myself or not doing any hand gestures. Definitely need to improve on that..

    Subscribing to this. Best way to prepare for interviews, Ive learnt is basically be fully aware what a career in medicine entails.

    Most of the questions they will ask you will probably be already answered on your personal statement, so having a thorough knowledge on what you have written on your personal statement will be very useful.
