How to prepare for medical school interview
As a high school student you’re probably not very experienced with getting interviewed by top medical universities.Hence, no matter how confident you feel you are, you should practice plenty with older people.

The more uncomfortable they make you the better, because nowadays the interviewees at medical schools are very direct. The admission steam interview hundreds of students per cycle so it is hard to stand out but you must try your best to do so.

How can you do this? By preparing well, coming off as confident and smiling!

Medical School Interview

There are manly two main types of interview, the traditional interview of a panel questioning you or Multiple Mini Interviews (MMIs). Ask as many students who have been through the process for their advice.

The traditional style

You will be put in front of a committee of 3 or 4 to interview you. They will ask questions about your personal statement; quiz you on your enthusiasm for medicine and why you chose the university. Expect them to also throw some ethical dilemmas in,as well as hypothetical scenarios to see how you’d respond.

Usually you’ll get a panel playing good cop, bad cop with you. Someone will be very direct and will not be friendly. This is a trick that is done purposely to check how a student copes under pressure and unexpected stress.

Make sure you’re polite at all times and carry on speaking to the entire panel. Do not ignore the person being rude but be assertive. Most students panic in this situation and get confused. However, now that you know this information it will allow you to control and sway the situation in you favour.

The panel will also assess whether they think you are enthusiastic and determined enough to last. Medicine is not for the weak and many people drop out. You must remember that the university wants someone who will contribute to the medical school and succeed during the 5 or 6 years of studies.

The Multiple Mini Interviews

The MMIs are a set of stations distributed among a big room. You’ll usually get 2-3 minutes per station where you must perform a task or answer a questions. The aim of such interview style is to maintain an objective score for each student.

You’ll be scored on your performance and then the scores are added together, and compared with the other medical applicants. The stations will include verbal reasoning tests, scientific interpretation, manual dexterity, moral dilemmas and other scenarios to check your approach and methodology in tackling tough questions.

The school will usually interview 10 people per seat so the chances of being accepted are low.Many students who are not accepted onto their dream course in the UK decide to study medicine in English in Europe.

There are many universities abroad that offer fantastic medical and dental courses that are far superior to the ones in the UK. There is a huge British community abroad as the shortage of place in the UK has caused a crisis causing the shortage of doctors.

Doctors trained abroad have no trouble returning to work in the UK.

Factors To Consider Before Choosing A School To Apply To

Factors To Consider Before Choosing A School To Apply To
Going into college is the last and perhaps the biggest step before you become a full "adult." The real world and the responsibilities it carries starts to loom over the horizon, and choosing the school you want to apply is perhaps an integral part of setting your course towards the career you'll pursue for a large part of your life.

So what factors should you consider before choosing a school to apply?

Last Updated on: 28.03.2018

Statistics from the World Bank indicate that there are around 200-million students enrolled in higher education institutions around the world every year.

However, despite the growing number of higher education graduates, a lot of them still don't get the opportunity to be integrated into the labor market properly.

As such, choosing a school isn't always exactly a matter of "what you want to take" and "what's in," but rather inclusive of other factors you should consider as well:
  1. Consider the kind of career projection you want to have after you graduate. If you have a projected career path for yourself, try to assess not only if the schools of your choice are offering your preferred degree program, but if their curriculum is something you can benefit from. The more opportunities a school can offer for your intended career, the better an option that school can become.
  2. Consider the availability of degree programs of the schools of your choice. If for instance you don't have a particular career in mind yet, consider checking out the kinds of programs your shortlisted schools have and check out the ones that interest you. How interesting are these programs for you, and which of these have livelihood options that you're interested in?
  3. Consider how popular the school is when it comes to employers. Try to assess if the particular school of your choice isn't just "famous" in general, but if industry leaders or companies within your niche of interest choose to hire from that school. This at least gives you an idea whether or not that school is known to excel in a particular industry or not.
  4. Consider the kind of accommodations the school has should you have to move to a dormitory within or near the school. How safe is the area, should you have to live outside? How far away is it from your home? If you can ride or commute on the way to school, what transportation options do you have? If you plan on taking a college loan, consider getting a loan and applying for a school that can provide the most accommodations you need for the lowest price. This can at least allow you to focus your budget to something else.
  5. Consider how classes work. Different schools and degree programs have different sets of schedules and classes to take. Is the school you're applying to settled with a fixed class load, or do you prefer having the ability to choose what classes you want to take? Having an irregular schedule can help, especially if you can only study for a few units at a time. If you're looking into working immediately, however, you are also free to choose a fixed or a full load of units.
  6. Consider other activities you want to do outside the school premises, and if these are available to you. This doesn't necessarily just apply to hobbies and interests, but consider how close the school is for opportunities for you to get a part-time job, or to get to a public library, or to access emergency services such as a hospital and a police station. Knowing you're in a safe and comfortable environment can provide an adequate learning experience for you.

Choosing a school to apply to is almost as important as choosing where you plan on working. If the factors to consider before choosing are observed, choosing your school is like choosing a second home, which means it has to be an environment where you'll learn what you need in order to achieve the dreams you've set for yourself.

If you want to take preparing for your career to another step, you may want to communicate with firms such as Dolman Law Group to learn more about employment law.
