Use our FAQs to help you select from the available options for medical school interview preparation.
1. What’s the difference between an MMI course and an Interview Preparation course?
The Kaplan Interview Preparation course is comprehensive and provides strategies for approaching the topic areas that are covered in traditional panel interviews, with the opportunity for 1:1 practice and some MMI station practice.
The Kaplan MMI course offers realistic practice for the MMI with 2 full multiple mini-interview circuits made up of 20 stations.
2. I start year 12 in September: will I need to consider either the MMI course or Medical School Interview Preparation course?
If you’re just finishing your GCSEs, there’s still time before making decisions on medical school interview preparation. An initial step would be to gather more knowledge about the medical schools to which you can apply, in order to see which interview style they use.
3. I’m starting year 13 in September: which interview preparation course should I consider?
You should initially consider the Interview Preparation option as it covers all the key topic areas of interviews with an introduction to realistic MMI practice. The MMI course focuses on realistic practice for multiple mini-interviews.
4. How do I make a decision on the interview course I should take when I haven’t received interview offers yet?
You can get in touch with the medical schools where you have applied, and see which of them run panel interviews or MMI. This will help you understand the style(s) on which to focus your practice.
5. I’m quite nervous about the unusual dynamic of MMIs, but also need to brush up on interview topics like the NHS and medical ethics. Which option do I go for?
We advise that you opt for our Interview Preparation course if you’re looking for support on interview panel topic areas plus a taster of MMI stations.
6. Can I take both interview preparation courses?
You most definitely can! This is especially relevant if you have applied to a mixture of universities that use one or the other. You can save £30 on both courses if they are purchased together.
7. What's the difference between the Interview Preparation Course and the Live Online option?
One option is directly in person and the other is live online within a virtual classroom. The Live Online course runs for a day as well, however, the class is shorter by 1 hour as the one-to-one interviews take place on the day following the taught class. You cannot take both options as the teaching within them is identical, you just choose which suits you best.
