Hi first post so hope it goes well,

I got invited for an interview at Kings (I’m studying medicine) which is obviously great news the only issue being that they gave me 10 days between the invite and the interview date. I’ve done no prep and my school is hosting a med mock interview session a few days afterwards so I’m wondering whether I should reschedule my interview to get some more preparation in or will it look bad on me?

Thanks for any feedback
It's not really a great reason for wanting to reschedule an interview tbh. Ten days is enough time to prepare

Maybe ask whoever's running the mock interviews at your school if you could do one earlier than everyone else?

I have applied for Medicine for the 2019 entry and so far I have been given one interview at BSMS. Their interviews are in the MMI format and I was reallyyyyy hoping you guys can help me with any advice.
Literally, ANYTHING that you think helped you or you will be using, please, please do share.

THANK YOU!!!

If one station goes badly, it's not the end of the world as you have the remaining few to make up for it. So don't feel disheartened if one went badly.
Additionally if it does go badly, don't dwell on it as this could effect subsquent stations, just clear your mind and move on.
It's also a really short period of time you are talking to them so, I don't know how the setup is for BSMS, but don't keep on talking forever. I know at my interview we had three questions so we didn't need to continously talk

I've been offered an interview in Cardiff for medicine 2019 entry and have a range of dates to choose from, ideally I would personally choose the later date as this will give me longer to prepare but was wondering if this would disadvantage my application at all?

No disadvantage to your application.
Just you may personally choose to delay preparing for the interview because it is further away- realistically will you do more prep.
It's up to you when you do the interview, most uni's complete all interviews before determining places

Just slightly concerned, I've been given two interviews on the exact same date and had already committed to one. Would really like to go to both med schools and am trying to change the date but I'm worried i'll get rejected from the one I'm trying to change if they can't find another date! Is this a possibility?

Phone both Unis and ask if you can change dates.

Usually they can help with this problem, but you need to do it quickly defore all dates are filled.

Junior doctor contract

Burden on social care services

You'll just be asked generically about whether you've been reading about any topical issues and be asked for your opinion on them

Hey,

So some universities give you a list of questions they could ask for their MMI. Usually MMIs are made of several stations each focusing on a different aspect. For example, one might focus on your ability to interact with patients/people. Another one might ask you questions as to why you chose that particular uni. There will also most certainly be a station on moral and ethics where they might as you about abortion, whether the NHS should pay for all treatment really and etc

To get the best possible idea it’s always good to check out the websites of the specific universities you are applying to or search your online.

Hope this helps

I wouldn't worry at all. I had 3 interviews and recieived two of them super late compared to all my friends. Doesn't mean you are a worse applicant or less likely to get an offer.

This.

Unis never give out all their interview dates at once. Have patience.

A timely warning folks ......
We are now in Interview season.

Please do not, under any circumstances, reveal interview questions or role-play scenarios to other TSR users, either on any TSR board or via PM.

* Firstly TSR will ban you immediately.

* Secondly, if you think about it, you would be giving an advantage to another candidate - how might then get an offer instead of you.
Its therefore in your interest not to say anything.

* General 'I think it went okay', or 'I panicked a bit with one of the role-plays' type comments are fine. Anything more detailed is totally and absolutely forbidden on TSR!
