Overview

The medical school interview: it’s where you can make a lasting impression and also the deciding factor as to whether or not you begin your med school career. So make sure you’re ready to ace the interview with our medical school interview preparation course. 
Our full day interview courses are facilitated by both experienced doctors and senior medical students, who have the benefit of recent medical school interview experience. With a maximum of 10 students per 2-3 facilitators, the small class size and interactive nature means our students undergo continuous practice and receive individual feedback.

We’ll break down the answers medical schools are looking for, and how you can make YOUR answers stand out. From practice questions to mock interviews, we’ll make sure you are fully prepared for your interview when the time comes.

98% of our students received an offer after their med school interview last year. Follow in their footsteps and get into the medical school you want.

FAQ:

Q | Can I change which university I want to focus on between signing up and the course date?

Of course! We understand that things change and you may not have all of your interview offers at the time of signing up. As long as you give us at least a couple of days notice, we can make sure that we have practice materials prepared for your chosen university. You’ll be provided with the contact details of the course lead after registration, just send them an email.

Q |Can I get practice questions from more than one university during my mock MMI circuit?

Most of the mock MMI will be stations which are relevant to all medical schools, allowing you to practice for multiple universities. With regard to university specific questions, on the course day, we only have time to ask questions from ONE university choice.

If you’d like to try more personalised questions from your chosen, or different universities, consider signing up for one of our MMI circuit half days. Here you can choose to have a MMI round all tailored to one university or you could have a question each from 10 different universities!

Q | Why do I need to send you my personal statement before the course?

Sending us your personal statement before the course is really important: it allows us to tailor your medical school interview practice specifically to you. Your course facilitators will read your personal statement before the day to get to know a little about you before you even arrive. If you get stuck, they may be able to remind you of things that you have done that you can use as an example of teamwork, communication skills or empathy, for example. We also use your personal statement to create individualised questions in your MMI round. Anything you have included on your personal statement you need to be prepared to talk about on interview day, so make sure you re-read them! If you need help with your personal statement, take a look at our Personal Statement Tutoring and Review services.

Q | I can’t get to your course venue. Can I attend via video call?

Due to the nature of the course, you are not able to video-in. One of the best things about our course is that the whole day is interactive, involving moving around and group work.

We’re hoping to expand the locations in which we provide courses, and will shortly be launching an online interview course. In the meantime, a good alternative is our one-to-one interview tutoring which we do offer via Skype. We are also able to teach through the same sessions as provided in the medical school interview preparation course.

Fantastic experience

I would highly recommend this course to anyone who needs that boost to get over that hurdle in the MMI stations. The supplied information was very useful and informative with the current NHS topics as well as the medical ethics scenarios. The video caption of my interview has taught me a lot about my body language and what I had to work on from the feedback from the Doctors who have helped with the at most dedication and advice to take onboard to work on. The whole course was interactive as a group or on an individual basis; I was very confident that I have picked the right team to help me bridge the gap. Thank you theMSAG team and keep up the good work. I am definitely recommending my colleagues to attend this course.

Top, top service

I wasn't quite sure about how the day would go and I was also sceptical about how helpful the course would actually be, but almost straight away, and afterwards, I realised what a great choice I had made attending the course. It fully equipped me for the interview, and although I had to do some practice on my own, as everyone should, the course really helped me expect what was going to come up, the type of questions I was asked, and also where I could personally improve

Great course to help you prepare for the interview!

This course was really great in helping me structure my answers to questions ranging from what are problems in the NHS to questions about myself. They really cover a wide range of possible interview questions to help you feel prepared for interview day! They have a crash course of hot topics/issues in the NHS in the morning as well typical interview questions for MMI and traditional. All of my course leaders were former interviewers themselves so they knew exactly what they were talking about, common interviewee mistakes, and excellent tips on how to respond to questions. There was then a great MMI practice round in the afternoon that they provided response sheets on to discuss your answers so you really got a lot of practice in before the interview! This was also recorded so you can take it home and analyse your performance as well as refresh yourself on what the feedback was. This course absolutely helped me get into medical school, and gave me the practice and confidence during interview to help me get the offer!!

Definitely worth the money

I took this course just before my medical school interviews and I feel without going on this course, I don't think I would be studying medicine today. The team are friendly, knowledgeable and make the day very worthwhile, Thanks again.

Excellent experience

During the lesson, I have learnt a lot of things that I would never think about before, such as the structure of the healthcare system in England. I found the way and the structure to answer interview questions especially the ethical senarios are extremely helpful. The small class size is another part that I really like. The doctors are helpful and patient, they listen to you when you are talking and give you personal feedback. The day was intense but it really pushed my level up to another standard. You do get small criticisms because the doctors want you to do the best, they are really pushing me to make mistakes because it's the time to discover them and fix them. There are always some really valuable suggestions to improve your answers. Also, the written feedback and mark schemes helped me to practice and improve even after the lesson. I think it's very worth to have such lessons!
