The Interview Crash Course Workbook

Just like with our BMAT and UCAT courses, every student who attends the Interview Crash Course gets a free copy of our Course Workbook. You should treat this as your Bible during the interview season – it will greatly help you understand what’s going on in the medical world, and will therefore be beneficial to your life.

Written by our team of experienced medical students, the Interview Crash Course Handbook is the perfect reference manual for your interview preparation. The content is presented in an informal yet informative style, which makes it much easier to read than the majority of “proper” interview books on the market. We’ve included everything we think you should know before your interview, including easy-to-follow articles about the NHS and Current Affairs that they love to ask about.

Topics Covered

Table of Contents

The Table of Contents is often a good indication as to what’s in a book. Here’s what ours looks like.

Introductory Remarks

While we try our very best to minimise the amount of ‘waffle’ in our books, the ‘soft stuff’ is a necessary part of doing well at interviews. Have a read through these few pages and see if you agree.

Preparing for Interviews

This is quite a hefty section, constructed by asking a tonne of medical students at our various universities what they did to prepare for their interviews. We’ve amalgamated their advice into a few actionable points. Here are some excerpts.

Inner & Outer Game

This is a controversial section of our Interview Crash Course book. Some students think it’s a total waste of space, while others think it’s the most useful few pages of advice they’ve ever read. We’ve included practically the whole section, so feel free to have a read through it and decide for yourself.

Answering Common Questions

This is an absolutely massive section in our book. Here are a few pages. Enjoy!

Answering Weird Questions

Everyone gets really worried about ‘weird’ questions that might come at them during interviews (we all certainly were). This section of the book tries to show that weird questions aren’t necessarily a bad thing, and gives some example questions, answers and most importantly, thought-processes that you can read through and hopefully apply to your own practice/interviews.

Multiple Mini Interviews (MMI)

Given that the vast majority of universities now use MMI for their interview process, we’ve devoted a sizeable chunk of the book to deconstructing MMI. We’ve included over 20 MMI scenarios with full explanations and thought-processes, along with some good, general advice for how to get through them. If you feel like you need some more practice, you can always attend our MMI Crash Course, where we take you through 10 MMI stations over the course of a few hours.
