    They won't be testing your medical knowledge. That is what you are going to learn. Generally speaking they will want to know why you want to be a physio, and what you have done to come to this conclusion - work experience, reading, etc.

    Then depending on where you are applying you will either have a formal sit down interview, or what is called a mini OSCE or something similar. This is the more favoured option now I believe as it is harder to prepare for and gives them a better idea of you as a person.

    Where I studied, there were six stations in the interview, and they would be things such as explain to this lady that her father has just died (actor present), or tell us about yourself and what qualities you have to be a physio. Could be things such as make a house out of this lego. Anything really. The idea is that they put you under pressure and see how you respond.

    Rest of it is simple - dress formally, be polite, BE ON TIME, try to relax - easier said than done.
