    Yeah it's quite expensive for 4 hours I booked it but now I'm kinda regretting it 😁😭

    Because other courses are roughly the same price but last a whole day and teach you about the NHS and ethics.

    But I assumed this course would be better because it's purely MMI practice so I thought it would be really good prep.

    Just hope it's worth all that money 😭

    It's literally 4 hours of MMI practice and feedback

    So you do 10 stations on your own and then another 10 paired up with someone else and then you get feedback on each station.

    What do letters of recommendation need to include? Is it a character reference or is it just proof of having undertaken work experience?

    My advice is to relax. You'll do best if you stay calm. From my experience, it did not help that I had read the book "Medical School Interviews: A Practical Guide to Help You Get Into Medical School". The questions require you think out of the box, maybe use some basic science knowledge- but there was nothing that I could have prepared for. Maybe have a read through your personal statement, though I wasn't asked anything about it. What is your background?

    Thanks, much appreciated! I've just finished my degree in Biomed this year, so are they likely to ask me questions at this level?

    Whats everyones thoughts on the Swansea applicant day? Its such short notice and I have a final interview on Thursday for which I want to be in 'give me a job' mode rather than 'I want to be a friggin doctor already' mode! Anyone who's applying again and has been last year - Is it much use? they have a rundown of the course structure (what I'm most interested in) on their website. Thanks in advance

    Having a little bit of a worry right now with this work experience for Warwick.

    I had a Ghana Medical Brigade which I was going to talk heavily about but that was in September 2014, so that's out.

    I did 10 weeks full time in a lung function clinic in 3rd year (So that's 50 hours-max cut off), shadowing doctors/consultants and talking to patients about their experience.
    i've recently started a job as a HCA (16 hours), but i've only gone through training during those 16 hours so no direct patient contact as of yet.
    I've volunteered in an elderly care home doing various tasks (22 hours)
    Also volunteered for a day with homeless asylum seekers in Cardiff to find out the goings on there and how they can feedback to the NHS etc. (8 hours)

    Is this work experience form purely a box ticking of 'yes, he's met 70 hours in more than 1 category' or is there more to it than that guys?
