As interviews are coming up, I just wanted to start this thread to ask a few questions about what potential/successful applicants have/had done to prepare, and whether what they anticipated turned out to be realistic.
Specifically, are there any Jesus medics who can tell me a little bit about the interviews there? I anticipated the 2 interviews i.e. the general and the scientific one, but there's a third which is an "academic" one, which I've been told is all maths, done by a certain Dr. Hladky.
To prepare for that, would anyone advise anything apart from going over A level maths? I've already done the A level, so hopefully I'll be okay, but still a little worried.
Also, if anyone can provide any info to what extent BMAT scores are taken into account when assessing an application, that would be greatly welcomed.
I'm not sure to what extent discussion is allowed, but if it is allowed, can anyone give examples of questions they were asked? I understand it's not realistic to try and predict what you'll be asked; I'm not trying to do that. I just want to get a little bit of an idea of what other people were asked.
If anyone else is thinking the same thing, then visit this link for a mock medicine interview at Emmanuel college: http://www.emma.cam.ac.uk/admissions/videos/interviews/?showvideo=46
Any help would be greatly appreciated
