    Hello,

    We noticed no one has replied to you! Most unis make candidates sign disclaimers requesting them to not tell others what the interviews entailed. That's probably why you haven't got any answers yet!

    As we're sure you know, St. Andrews interviews for Medicine are MMI format. We've got free example MMI interview questions here you can check out to help you practice.

    Also, check out this page of the St. Andrews website and find the section on the interview. It says that there will be 6 mini interviews/stations where you will be expected to demonstrate:

    - understanding of medicine as a career
    - that you appreciate the realities of working in a caring profession
    - communication skills
    - interpersonal skills
    - an ability to discuss ethical issues.

    Also, at least one station will entail a role play with an actor. Make sure you do plenty of practice and research the above points to fully prepare yourself.

    Also, have a look at this thread on The Student Room. It's all about MMIs in general and should help!

    Lastly, we really hope your interview goes well for you! If it doesn't however, don't worry - you can always reapply. We've got a great free blog here to calm your nerves if you ever find yourself stressing about the future.

    We hope this helps,

    The Medic Portal
