    You should probably post this in the Medicine forum - there's a UCL thread there too where applicants chat.

    Hi there!
    The Interview at UCL is a panel based interview. The interview is around 15-20 minutes, with 3 interviewers, being a clinician, academic and a layperson respectively.
    It focuses on 4 main areas:

    Personal Statement:
    You need to verify all the claims made in your personal statement, and draw on your examples therein and expand on them i.e. expanding on the qualities gained from a work experience placement

    BMAT Essay:
    You'll be given a copy of your BMAT Essay 15 minutes - 1 hour beforehand. So, annotate and be prepared to discuss it!

    NHS in the News/Ethical Dilemmas:
    You need to know the ins and outs of the NHS, with the Health and Social Care Act, as well as current 'hot topics.'

    Communication Skills:
    You'll need to communicate ideas well, formulate arguments and counterarguments in an ethically justifiable manner. Express ideas clearly and coherently. Follow a reasoned argument - it's better to give spontaneous yet well thought out answers, rather than rehearsed and 'coached' responses.

    Good luck with all your interviews!
