How to do well in a Medicine Interview

Role-play

When in role-play situations, you need to make sure that you cover all angles that the interviewers are assessing. This means being:

  • Confident
  • Assertive
  • Professional

And most importantly, empathetic. Empathy is when you understand and can share the feelings of other people .This is the hardest skill/attribute to display in spontaneous situations.

Final Word

I would strongly advise a rehearsal of your interview to be done repeatedly until all weaknesses are strengthened - and you're simply focusing on the finer details to impress your interviewer.

If you're studying A-Levels, use our A-Level resources to make sure you ace your grades!

I got an interview in Manchester on Tuesday - this came at a really good time. Thanks soooooo much!!

Can I ask just one question, what do you mean by good head movement?

Basically smiling and nodding a lot!

You have to show that you're in the conversation and you're taking in what they're saying by nodding whilst the interviewer is speaking.

Thanks for telling me about this!

I read this advice just as part of my interview prep, and the advice here is really helpful, particularly the one to make sure that you smile a lot. Not only does it help you feel more confident, but makes you seem more friendly too, from the point of first impressions.

I have forwarded the links to these articles in my school group chats as well.
