Multiple Mini Interview MMI Circuits Overview

The MMI is an integral part of the admissions process. Don’t get caught flat-footed and unprepared: get ready to ace your interview by taking the MSAG’s MMI course!

Our MMI preparation course is a half-day mock MMI circuit, tailored to each applicant’s needs. You’ll be able to complete a circuit of 10 full stations with sample questions from the schools you are applying for, and then observe another 10 full stations.

Unlike other MMI Courses, we make sure that you see completely different stations when you observe compared to when you participate. That means in total, you are exposed to 20 different stations. Our goal is to make sure you get an authentic, honest experience of your med school MMI. Prepare for the MMI with our team!

The Multiple Mini Interview (MMI) format

You will encounter multiple interview types for med school. The MMI is different than traditional interviews. This interview format is designed to show the interviewer how well the applicant's communication skills are. Communication is really a fundamental part of medicine. As a doctor, you will rely on your communication skills every day for your patient care and working alongside your medical team.

What is it like to participate in Multiple Mini Interviews (MMI)

Each medical school is different but the MMI traditionally consists of up to 10 stations, including rest station(s). Each station is a mini interview around 8-10 minutes long. Before each scenario, the applicant will be given a question or a real MMI scenario in which he or she will read and be given time to prepare and formulate their answer. Next, the student will sit and discuss their response with the interviewer. The student will continue this format throughout each station.

What to expect in the MMI Course?

Our interview room will feature up to 20 sample MMI stations and offers 10 MMI stations personalised for each applicant. Our MMI questions are based off interview questions previously used by universities in the UK, to provide you with an authentic MMI interview.

Our interview course has a 98% success rate for last year’s students that attended our MMI and interview courses, with some students being offered a place at some of the top medical schools in the UK such as Cambridge, Oxford, Imperial College London and more.

The half-day course is led by experienced doctors, senior medical students and medical education professionals that apply their knowledge and experience from getting into medical school themselves.

At the end of the circuit, you will receive a video copy of your performance as well as the feedback provided by our facilitators. In addition to this, you’ll receive a written copy of your performance marked against a mark scheme.

    Common MMI interview stations

    Below is a list of some common mmi stations you might encounter for your medical school interview. Each university is unique and will ask different questions, so as you prepare it is important to consider all of these question types.

    • Personal station: this station is engineered to learn more about you to determine if medicine is the right profession for you.
    • Teamwork station: there might be stations asking about teamwork and asking how you have worked with a team in the past.
    • Medical ethics stations: this station looks for how you would handle situations or challenges in the medical profession, such as ethical scenarios.
    • Role play stations: this station uses real actors and real-life scenarios that the applicant will need to talk through to show how he or she would handle the situation.
    • Calculation | Problem-solving station: here you are given information and you will need to calculate the data and provide solutions.
    • Hot topics station: this station might ask you questions based on recent health care related subjects such as the NHS.
    • Photo station: you might encounter a station where you are asked to review a photo and then interpret what you think is happening in the photo.

    Ask a Question
    • Should I go for the full-day Medical School Interview Course or the half-day MMI Circuit Course?

      The full-day interview course is usually the first step in the preparation. The course is a very small group (9 to 12 students and 3 to 4 facilitators) and it lasts a full day. In London, the interview courses are held every Saturday. In terms of what we do during the day is really coach you on how to approach all different types of questions and MMI stations. It’s not lecture based. It’s more like a full day practice where you are taught techniques, strategies, how to structure your answers etc. Therefore, it really gives you a real interview experience. In the interview course, you will be coached in how to really get better at each type of station. I highly recommend this first to improve your interviewing skills. You’ll get a smaller MMI circuit included in the full day. The full course also comes with pre-course material that you get access to, including all the info you need to know on NHS,  medical ethics etc. and multiple 10-minute videos teaching on the content. The course itself is more like a small group practice with a lot of feedback throughout. The MMI Circuit Course is probably best after you have done the course first if you need further practice or if you want to do more stations from a specific school.

    • Are role-play scenarios included in the circuit? Also will you be able to provide stations to more new medical schools e.g. Anglia Ruskin? Thank you

      Before coming onto your MMI circuit, we will ask you to complete a form. This form asks questions about what types of stations that you would like to include in your circuit and yes, role plays are definitely included. And yes, ee do have past questions and stations based on the newer medical schools e.g. Anglia Ruskin and Aston interviews which we include in relevant MMI circuits. Just let us know when you complete the form and we can take it from there. If you have any further questions about our courses you can email us at and we will be happy to help you further! 

    • Are the MMI Circuits for dental students also?

      Yes, our MMI Circuits are for both medical and dental students.

    • Where are the courses held?

      This year our courses will be held in both London and Birmingham. You can view the course addresses and amenities here. Be sure to check the location when you book your course date.

    • How long does the circuit last?

      The mmi courses are half-day courses. Our circuits run in both the morning and afternoon. Our morning circuit runs from 10:30 am to 1:30 pm and our afternoon circuit runs from 2:30 pm to 6 pm.

    • When will I receive my feedback?

      You’ll receive your video feedback immediately at the end of the circuit. This will contain the video recording of your performance during the various stations, as well as the feedback provided by the facilitators. You will also receive a copy of your typed up feedback via email by the end of the same day.  

    • Are the stations specific to each university?

      Yes, all the stations are based on previous questions asked at interviews from universities around the UK. We can tailor the number of stations to the specific university you want to focus on. Our goal is to provide you with the best MMI preparation available.

    • How many questions will be based on my Personal Statement?

      Each circuit is personalised to the applicant. This means you can have as many or as few personal statement questions as you would like. If you’re unsure about how many questions specific universities will ask, we can advise you, just let us know!
