I'm a curious and ambitious medical student and teacher!

Talk to students who have already done it! A few of the questions will be general (why medicine, skills such as teamwork,..), for the ethics questions remember the 4 pillars. Also, prepare by practicing your answers in the time limit (7 minutes in Kings, if I remember right) Congrats, and good luck!!

Hi Kafi, congratulations on your interview offer. As with any interview, you need to know the answers to some default questions, like what experience you have, why you want to study the subject, what extra-curricular activities you do etc. You should also know your personal statement well and be able to answer questions on topics you've mentioned within it. If you're applying for medicine, it's important you also know the main principles in medical ethics. You may find the ISC Medical book for medical interviews useful. And finally, dress sharp, smile and be confident! Good luck!
