More about King's College London
The structure is thoroughly explained to you on the day of your interview prior to starting. My interview was in Guy's hospital on one of the undergraduate treatment clinics. The interview is made up of 4 stations all in the same room and each station has a different interviewer. The interviewer at a station will ask you a few questions for 5 mins and on hearing a bell you are to get up and walk over to the next station (note while you are in one station there will also be 3 other students in the room being interviewed at the other stations) where you will be questioned for 5 mins more by a different interviewer. The questions will be as you would expect eg: Why dentistry?, Why King's? etc...
The interview lasts for 25 mins in total, this is because after having completed the 4th station you then have to walk back to the station you started at. Here your first interviewer tends to ask you questions regarding an ethical scenario (this scenario is given to you on the day of the interview and you are allowed to make notes on it prior to starting the process).The MMI system is nothing to worry about and I think I actually preferred it to a conventional interview. This is because if one of the stations doesn't go too well you have 4 more chances to impress. Also you can potentially repeat things between stations if appropriate. In my interview I found the interviewers to be very nice as they prompted me and gave me clues as to what I should say if I got stuck or if I started answering the wrong question ☺️.
With regards to preparing for it just write out answers for potential questions you could be asked and practice saying them out loud from memory, sometimes recording yourself and playing it back can help. Get friends, family or teachers to give you mock interviews. Don't try to speak too fast and which can make you breathless and thus harder to understand. Speak slowly and clearly and be confident because they obviously liked your application hence why you've been offered an interview. Also read up about recent advances in Dentistry and also maybe a bit about King's Dental Institute and King's College London in general. It may help if you've been to an open day.
I hope that helps and if you have anymore questions please don't hesitate to ask. Best of luck with your future applications.
Best of luck!
