    The whole purpose of the multiple mini interviews is that you will not be able to practice your answers. The purpose of this interview style is to see how you react to questions/activities on the spot and for you to be assessed by several people.

    Generally you will have different 'stations' where you will be asked different questions or have a small task to complete. The particular questions and tasks set vary hugely by university and we do not allow specific discussion of these as it gives applicants an unfair advantage.

    Hi, I had MMI's at one of the university selection days I went to (I got an offer and I'm now studying adult nursing there), like Charlotte's Web said you can't really prepare for them or practice. However I practiced answering generic questions I made up/was given my college tutors, just to get more confident answering questions about myself and my work experience etc.

    A friend who worked in recruitment also recommended for the MMI's that at each station when I was asked a question or presented with a task, to take 10-15 seconds to think about how I wanted to answer/what I wanted to do instead of panicking and saying/doing any old thing. This was especially helpful as there is normally a time limit for each station and waffling on is not really an option.

    I hope this helps you, as it worked for me, good luck with your application.
