    I have a interview tomorrow at (I know, really last minute) and I have been preparing for a very long time, but I don't know about the maths station!

    What is the best way to go about preparing for the maths station?
    What kind of maths do MMI's normally ask? Is it A level or GCSE, is it very hard? I am not looking for specific medical schools maths for confidentiality reasons, but in general...

    Thanks!

    GCSE not A level

    It will probably be something like conversions?
    Make sure you know your mg to g etc.

    Maths in medicine is a lot of understanding about;

    - Mili to micro to nano i.e. 1ml is 1000ul is 1 000 000nl
    - Doses over time, how much to give over a period of time
    - Half lives

    It's not complex, GCSE level maths...just stay focused and you'll have time to chill at the end of the station. You'll be fine.
