Here we tackle the common interview questions on "Why Medicine?" - this is a favourite for MMI Universities and often they'll have an interviewer who grills you on that single question for 5 minutes!

Lesson 3

Wider Reading

Commonly you will be asked about some wider reading you have done outside of medicine and why you chose the A-Levels you did. You may be probed on what you have gained from your experience in sixth form so far and how you want to carry this on further into medical school.

Lesson 4

Why not Medicine or Nursing?

Medicine and Dentistry are so similar so what makes you pick Dentistry? Is it because it's so hands-on? It’s important that you don’t disrespect other career choices but also show your drive for dentistry here.

Lesson 12

Work Experience 🏥 (Introduction)

It is quite likely you will get an MMI station which focuses on work experience and you need to be able to draw on what you have done and go beyond what you have already written on your personal statement. This is why we particularly focus on what you have written on your personal statement and ensure we’ve covered all possible questions you will get asked.

Lesson 13

Using STARR

Here we explore how to use the STARR framework when responding to questions on work experience. It’s important to be able to structure your questions well and using this structure helps us formulate answers which will impress the interviewers. In particular, we’ll look at good and bad answers before going through 10+ questions in the interview handbook.

Lesson 14

Work Experience in Dental Practice

If you’ve carried out work experience in a dental practice, we’ll explore the things you could get asked. Interviewers have a particular set of questions they ask for this so it will be invaluable to gain insight into this. If you haven’t done work experience in a dental practice then don’t worry, we’ll leave this tutorial!

Work Experience in Hospital

It's quite rare for dental applicants to have this so great if you do but don't worry if not! This is really useful into giving insight into the secondary care approach of dentistry and hospitals really showcase the latest treatments and methods which you can discuss
