How will medical and dental schools use interviews? Here’s a summary

So, you’ve completed your UCAT and now you’re working hard to achieve high grades. But what about your medical interview? Medical interviews are perhaps the most under-recognised part of the medical entry admissions process. Highly able students who have excelled in their UCAT and ATAR have unfortunately missed out on a place in medicine due to failure to understand and prepare for interviews. Each university uses medical interviews differently, and it can be confusing. Here is a summary: Course How are students selected for interview? Type of interview Interview themes How are students selected for a place? Adelaide University (Medicine &...

I am expecting a high ATAR and I scored highly in UCAT. Do I still need interview training?

This is a common question asked by MedEntry students. Such students, having used MedEntry’s program, have scored highly in UCAT. In addition, many expect to receive a very high ATAR. These students may feel that a place in medical school is guaranteed, so they wonder: ‘Why bother with interview training?’ Here is a question we received just this week from a student: ‘I expect an ATAR of 99.8+ and I achieved a UCAT percentile of 99. So do I still need interview training?’ The answer is: Congratulations, but definitely, yes! There are several reasons for this, including: Interviews are very different...

Bond Psychometric test

Bond University, in order to distinguish themselves from other universities’ entry criteria, has chosen to use a Psychometric test. ‘Psychometric test’ is a very broad term and can include a test of both cognitive and non-cognitive attributes. What Bond University uses for their medical program is the non-cognitive type: that is, it assesses personality. Specifically Bond University uses the MSCEIT and 16PF tests. The Bond Psychometric test, which is undertaken by candidates at no cost to the university, reduces the expense to the university by reducing the number of students that they need to interview. The Bond Psychometric test is like...

Want to be a doctor? Here’s 5 things you should know

1. There are A LOT of students in the same position as you It really is remarkable how many people want to study medicine. This is both good and bad news for you. The bad part is how small most medical cohorts are, which makes medical entry extremely competitive. Don’t let this weigh on your mind too much though, because you simply need to accept that there will be people with a better chance of getting in than you and people with a worse chance of getting in than you. The only aspect of this process under your control is how...

Why are medical interviews so important?

Medical interviews are perhaps the most underestimated part of the medical entry admissions process. Many students do not prepare for them, either because they do not recognise the importance of medical interviews, or do not understand how difficult they are.

For example: At Adelaide University and Curtin University,  medical interviews are worth 40% of the admissions criteriaAt Monash University, UWA and UNSW, medical interview is worth 33% of the admissions criteriaThe Newcastle University medical interview is the only criterion...
