Prep Zone Academy | Medical School Admissions Consultant

Medical School Interview Preparation

For applicants to UK, Singapore, and Australia Medical schools, interviews form the most important part of the application. At the last stage of your admissions process, you will need to sit through One-on-one, Panel, and/or Multiple Mini Interviews (MMI) where candidates rotate around several stations with questions. 

In addition to your great scores and personal statements, schools want to know about your background, extracurricular activities and even understanding of healthcare issues and ethics. This is where Prep Zone Academy’s medical school admissions team can help.

We Are Here To Help

Prep Zone Academy’s admissions team has been working with students applying to medical universities for years, and every year we see near a 100% success rate. Our students have been admitted to virtually every medical school in the UK, Ireland, and Australia that is accepted by the SMC, and includes some top names such as Cambridge, Imperial, and UCL.

Apart from helping you improve your UCAT and BMAT scores necessary to gain admission to medical school, Prep Zone offers in-house medical school application consulting from helping students with…

  • school shortlisting based on profile and scores,
  • brainstorming and editing of the personal statement,
  • profile building,
  • securing medical attachment and volunteering opportunities,

to interview preparation sessions. During these sessions, students will be exposed to near-identical conditions that they would encounter in your medical interview. Our admissions team will help them work on their communication skills and answer strategies, as well as review the plethora of possible question scenarios that may come up.

Medical School Interviews

Each university conducts interviews differently. Some prefer panels of admissions officers and professors, while others like MMIs (multiple mini interviews), where students rotate around different stations, each with a different question and a time limit for your answer. The questions generally test your personal motivation to study medicine at their specific university. They also care about your personal qualities such as empathy, leadership, and communication skills.

Some universities ask factual, knowledge-based questions, and almost all want you to demonstrate your knowledge about current affairs in medicine and healthcare systems. Finally, interviews may test your ability to role play and analyse ethical scenarios that you may encounter as a doctor later on.

Topics Covered In Interviews

  • Personal character qualities and fit for medicine
  • Motivation to study medicine
  • Knowledge of the field
  • Knowledge of the NHS and public health
  • Medical ethics and situational judgement
  • Teamwork
  • Role play

St George's University of London, University of Manchester

Both Tiffany and Simonas were very helpful with my med applications by guiding me towards what Universities expect from my application but also what makes me stand out as a candidate. During an interview preparation, Tiffany helped me develop my answers in a strategic way that would allow an examiner to understand me better as a candidate and a person. I truly believe that I landed my St George's offer because I did a mock with Tiffany a few days prior to the interview. Taking classes with Prep-zone Academy boosted my confidence and gave me realistic insight into what to expect.Thank you very much for your help!

I heard about Prep Zone through a friend who was also at Prep Zone. I found Prep Zone’s advice for my Personal Statement and other additional questions very useful, my consultant was very reactive and sent emails to the universities to get information about the entry requirements. The different MMI preparations and the one-to-one interviews with different consultants were also very helpful, and it really helped me to be confident for the interviews themselves. I believe Prep Zone did help me efficiently throughout the application process, and my application would probably not have been as solid without Prep Zone’s experience and expertise.

I signed up for help for my overseas applications as I was not sure how to tailor them for the UCAS and I was not confident in my interview skills. The consultants helped me to craft my personal statements by providing tips on content, structure and flow while also helping me pick out relevant information. As for the interview preparation, the consultants simulated both MMI and panel interviews and gave expectations and points of improvement for both. They coached me in questions that broadly mirrored the style if not the exact content of the actual interview questions and made me realise how I should adapt my answers based on the question and how I should approach difficult questions in a methodical manner.

I signed up for this as I was applying to college in the UK, but being in high school in the US, I had no idea how to navigate the application process and how to choose what schools to apply to. I think one of the things my consultant, Nirali, was most helpful for in the beginning was shortlisting colleges. She helped me understand which universities I would have a better chance at and made sure my list had a good amount of safety schools, targets, and reaches. In addition to that, I think the interview preparation she provided made me feel a lot less nervous and more ready for the interviews.
