    Without disclosing any information about the content of the interviews I would practice
    - Breaking bad news
    -Understanding the justice side of the four pillars- and the implications. IE not being able to give a patient a certain treatment.
    -Understanding system of the journey to becoming a doctor, ie how f1 f2 works etc.
    That is very specific already. I will let this go, but remember that the more information you give a candidate who has not yet had their interviews, the better they prepare and after all, they are your competition!

    I've never actually had a medicine interview I've heard hear say of general medicine interviews across many schools... and these are what have been most common/most struggled with
    Plus i'm not in the business of worrying about my competition, for me the forum is a place to help, share, and advise. i've spent atleast 100 hours so far preparing, and have no qualms with sharing my ideas. The forum thrives on that and in that respect it also helps myself improve by other people sharing their thoughts.

    You do realise that it is the rules not to share information, see https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=5056252. You have given the impression that you have had an interview which is why I said what I did.

    Of course I realise that the forum is a place to help, share and advise but you cannot go round sharing everything. Look at what I have typed in other parts of the forum to see how I have helped others too.

    Remember while you may not be worried, there are hundreds (if not thousands) of other candidates who have applied to and got interviews. How would they like it if you went out and shared information to those who haven't had the interview yet? (And I know you haven't had an interview - but as I said you make it sound like you have had).

    I am well aware, it is against the rules to share 'any details of questions, tests, or any other details' which is why I have refrained from doing so. That was not specific at all, its three topics I think are relevant and hot to come up. ie breaking bad news will very often be on a roleplaying station, justice is a pillar many people miss out and with an ageing population and increased demand on the NHS and recent news headlines it is even more important. I understand you think it was specific in light of assuming I had an interview.
    Whether I made it sound like I had or whether you assumed is probably moot- the point is. I haven't. I'm helping in a way that doesn't break the rules, I'm sure other candidates will sleep easy tonight.

    OK. I also always mention the 4 pillars because that is something that I personally specifically ask the candidates during interview. Plus of course things like "why medicine" and "why this place" is well known.
