Our MMI preparation course is a half-day mock MMI circuit, tailored to each applicant’s needs. You’ll complete 10 full stations with questions from the schools you’re applying for, then observe another 10 full stations. That’s right: we’ve compiled a question bank of REAL questions used by every English-speaking university in the UK, to create a realistic MMI.

Along with your personal statement, the interview is an integral part of the admissions process. You will encounter multiple interview types for med school, but the MMI differs from the traditional interviews. It’s designed to demonstrate communication skills, a fundamental part of medicine. 

As a doctor, you will rely on your communication skills every day for patient care and working with your medical team. Don’t get caught flat-footed: get ready to ace your interview by taking the MSAG’s MMI crash course!


Common MMI interview stations

  • Personal stations: engineered to determine if medicine is the right profession for you.
  • Teamwork stations: stations asking about teamwork and how you have worked with a team in the past.
  • Medical ethics stations: how you would handle situations or challenges in the medical profession, such as ethical scenarios.
  • Roleplay stations: 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 stations: you are given information and you will need to calculate the data and provide solutions.
  • Hot topics stations: asks you questions based on recent health care related subjects such as the NHS.
  • Photo stations: you are asked to review a photo and then interpret what you think is happening.

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 station, the student will be given a real question or scenario and time to prepare and formulate their answer.

Next, you’ll sit and discuss your response with the interviewer. Our interview room will feature up to 20 sample MMI stations , with 10 MMI stations personalised for each applicant. To provide you with authentic MMI questions, our mock interview questions are based on real UK University questions.


This 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.

Finally, here’s an excerpt from one of our blogs about how to deal with interview stress:

Applying to medical school can be a stressful experience, and, for many, the interview can be the peak of this. For many of you, this may even be the first time you have had to go through an interview process. The key to success is keeping your stress under control. I’m here to give you a short guide on how to achieve this in the run-up to and during your medical school interview. 

Firstly, it’s important to realise that a certain level of anxiety is to be expected around this time. This is a normal response. Stress can be good and help focus your mind on the task at hand. Your goal is to manage your levels at this point so that you are effective and do not allow too much stress to weaken your performance.


The more prepared you are and the more you know your stuff, the more you will be able to recall when under pressure. There are a few things you can do so that you are not caught by surprise:

Know your personal statement like the back of your hand. You should be able to talk about anything in there and back up any claim you have made.

Know the university you are interviewing for and be ready for the question: Why this university? The MSAG provides comprehensive information on each medical school in the UK and the world.

Be ready for common questions, such as: Why do you want to be a doctor? Tell us about what you learned from your work experience, a school project or while shadowing.

Take advice from others who have gone through the process. 

Set up mock interviews with family, friends, teachers, anybody! Going through questions in your head is different than actually verbalising your thoughts out loud and in an unfamiliar setting.


This may sound silly, but it’s proven to make a difference. When one is experiencing ‘performance anxiety’ you tend to have negative thought patterns. Try and recognise this and change it into a positive thought process. For example, “what if they don’t like me?”… Remember, they are interviewing you for a reason and therefore must have liked you enough from your application to want to meet you in person!”
