Very helpful, aided me in gaining confidence
I'm nowhere near finishing the course but this resource is amazing! It's honestly so helpful and insightful and it's nice to see Doctors making a free resource available as not everyone can 'afford' to get into medical school. I would 100% recommend and I feel that it has just the roght amount of guidance needed to succeed in an interview
really useful, gave really good tips for the interviews and focused on each of us individually giving feedback to every answer, so we could learn from each other and not only ourselves. learnt the fundamentals and was a really good intro to how to deliver in an interview
I was really confident for my interview after this course.Thank You so much!
I like how the course tells you exactly how to structure your answers and it gives lots of helpful examples in which you can then create your own personal ones!
Amazing resource. Covers a lot of stuff. Short videos means you can watch it at your own pace, practice, make notes. Also mentions common mistakes students make so you don't make them. I have an interview soon, this course and YouTube have been my only source of help, I feel quite prepared so hopefully it goes well.
The course was very informative and I found the videos on how to structure answers particularly useful!
Very good, was very helpful
The resources that were available were really useful! However, with only the free package, you only had access to basics and somethings were 'coming soon'. But overall a really good start to interview prep!
Very good, concise videos which hopefully will help me secure places at medical school.
I really loved the interview course and I have recommended to all my friends
This has been incredibly helpful for a clueless international student prepare for the interview. Well-researched, well-arranged and well-explained although more example questions would have been even more appreciated.
