Yes! Interviews are a crucial aspect of the selection process for entry into health science courses. Most people focus on secondary school, study for the UCAT but do not prepare for the interview.

However, knowledge of the types of questions asked, coaching on interview technique and enhanced communication skills can dramatically improve your performance. You should not go into an interview unprepared or not having an understanding of what you will be asked. If you do, you will be at a competitive disadvantage compared to those who are prepared for the interview.

The MedEntry Team has extensive interview expertise and knowledge of the types of questions likely to arise at each university, which we use to provide you with focussed training.

Our interview guide comes with all of our packages, or can be purchased separately. It is packed with information on interview technique, common themes in health science interviews and how to tackle specific questions that will be asked.

MedEntry also offers Virtual Interview Training. This service offers personalised interview coaching from an experienced tutor and mentor. It includes five one hour sessions to help hone your interview skills.

95% of students who have undergone our full training program have been successful in obtaining a place in one or more medical schools.

Psychometric and personality tests (such as the UCAT and interviews) rely on the fact that the candidates do not prepare, so testers/interviewers actively discourage the candidates from preparing. They do this by propagating various myths such as: preparation does not help; it will be a waste of resources; preparation may hinder your performance; interviewers are trained to pick up those who are coached; that there are some questions in the test/interview which are designed to detect if you try to second guess; it will work against you; it will disadvantage you; we can tell if you prepare etc. Accredited testers know that such organisations go to great lengths to place fear in the candidates to ensure they do not prepare, precisely because preparation works!

There are advantages to purchasing your Medical Interview Training even if you have not yet received an offer. Like HPAT, interview skills need to be developed over a period of time. As soon as you purchase, you will receive access to interview guides and resources which will help you begin your preparation. Purchasing now will also allow you to secure your preferred dates for training (you can always change these at a later stage).

In addition, MedEntry's interview training is very popular and places are limited. Sessions do book out so purchasing early will help you secure your place.

In the event that you do not obtain an interview offer, a partial refund can be arranged.

This is a myth promoted by universities to prevent you from preparing, because if you do prepare, their job becomes harder.

If you believe this myth, try watching a stand-up comedy show by the same comedian two days in a row. You will see that the seemingly 'random' thoughts which pop into their heads, which makes their lines so funny, are exactly the same. They have been rehearsed and practised hundreds and perhaps thousands of times. No one would say that stand-up comedians come across as rehearsed! Jerry Seinfeld, for example, takes one line of delivery and works on it for days, polishing the intonation, delivery, pitch etc. Yet when he comes on stage, it seems natural.

MedEntry's Medical Interview Training Sessions are designed to help you prepare effectively for your interview and come across in a natural, genuine manner.
