8 Tips for Medical School Interviews

Click Here to Get Great Medical School Interview Resources

Got an interview at a UK Medical School coming up? DON'T PANIC! You're going to be fine – seriously, you're going to nail it.

The trick with interviews is to go in there, be enthusiastic, be confident and don't be put off if it doesn't go as fabulously as you'd hoped. It's normal to be nervous, and as long as you've done your homework (read Tomorrow's Doctors, looked up the course you're applying for and done a decent little bit of work experience), you'll walk it.

How I got into medical school as a graduate!

This is my story about how I got into medical school through a rather indirect route. I hope you find it interesting and motivational if you are in the same position as I was when I was trying to apply for medical school!

0:24 GCSEs
0:59 A Levels
2:02 Degree
3:52 Entrance Exam
4:33 Work Experience
7:02 Interview

I've had a few requests from people asking how exactly I got into medical school, i.e. what were my grades, work experience, interview and entrance exams so here it all is! This is all me.

In terms of my grades I am probably not the most outstanding candidate as you will see, BUT medical schools are looking for a lot more than just grades now. They want an all rounded individual and that is certainly what I am!

If you feel like giving up applying for medical school, I hope my story is inspiration for you to keep carrying on with it all. By no means was it easy. I worked my arse off, and I worked harder in the four years between graduating and starting medical school than I ever had in my entire life to make sure I got in! Keep going, if I can do it then so can you.

Good Luck!
