If you have no history of anything manual dexterity related. Is it possible to take up something manual dexterity related and go at it everyday to perfect it and bring it to dental school interview if you have it within a few months? I have heard of people doing RC plane models made form 140 pieces and bring it to interview.

Very possible. I started knitting a very simple scarf, took it with me in its half-completed state and then promptly abandoned it after the interview.

My friend brought some paintings to his interview. I'm pretty sure he did them exclusively for the interview as he is not an artistic person in the slightest!

- If you have an in person interview, I highly recommend planning to arrive 1 hours in advance as you never know what might happen!

- Remain calm - which I know is easier said than done, but take deep breaths, try relaxation methods and pause before answering if you think you need time to collect yourself (the interviewers don’t mind)

- If you need a question to be repeated, ask them! They don’t mind if you need to hear something again.

- Be presentable and wear smart clothing (but don’t overdo it, a shirt and smart trousers is find, no need for a tux or ball gown!)

- Smile and appear open and friendly

- Nod and if given the opportunity to ask a question at the end, do so as it shows interest in their course/university

- Take a bottle of water with you as you make get a dry mouth from anxiety

- Practice common dentistry interview questions which can be found online and do some research on each of the universities you are being interviewed at, including the campus, university in general, facilities and the course.

- Practice answering ethical scenario questions

The university I took my scarf to was Barts as they do panel interviews - it’s not really appropriate to take something to an MMI interview as you aren’t allowed to take anything in with you.

I also love history, it’s by far my favourite subject :five:
I absolutely adore ancient history and actually spent my summer doing two history courses on Coursera (yes, this is what I enjoy doing in my free time ). I’m so jealous, I need to get myself an Akkadian dictionary :eek:
