Congratulations on receiving an invitation to a Liverpool medicine interview! The School of Medicine is one of the largest in the country and is set in a world-leading Russell Group University.
You will need to be available during the Liverpool medicine interview period, so knowing when the interviews take place is imperative! Avoid making any plans around the following weeks:
Interview slots are unable to be changed once booked and you can’t be interviewed outside of the dates provided! You should also know that the med school at Liverpool medicine interviews use Multiple Mini Interviews (MMIs) for selection.
In order to prepare for this, I’d recommend reading “Statement on the core values and attributes needed to study medicine”, which has been published by The Medical Schools Council.
This document should help by giving you an outline of what you might be tested on, so being familiar with knowing what the core values, skills and attributes that are needed to become a doctor will be advantageous. For example, these are some of the skills listed:
Unless issues of concern have been raised, the overall interview scores are ranked and the top-scoring applicants are made an offer. If however, you feel disheartened by the way your Liverpool medicine interview went, don’t lose hope.
In borderline decisions, Liverpool may make offers based on the combination of both academic achievement/potential and the interview score of the applicant. Therefore, if you already have a strong academic background in your application, this may work to your advantage.
Not everybody will be made an offer, unfortunately, and so the most productive thing to do is to make the best of any bad situation if that’s the case.
The med school provides feedback to unsuccessful applicants via UCAS Track at the time of notification of the result of your application.
In order to improve your performance at next year’s interviews (for example, if you decide to reapply), you can request to receive further written feedback. This way, you’ll be able to acknowledge your mistakes and know not to make them next time!
If you have been called to interview, you will have achieved a competitive score in the admissions test, and you will have been considered to meet/exceed Liverpool’s minimum academic criteria.
Knowing this, you should remember that you are academically able to become a doctor, and so in your interview, remain calm and remember that everybody wants you to do well!
Having confidence in your own ability shouldn’t lead you to become complacent, however. Prepare well for your interview, but always bear in mind that you have the potential to be successful.
Good luck with your upcoming interview at Liverpool. It’s important to prepare well for your interview, but don’t let preparation take over your A-Level studies. Finding a balance between interview preparation and revision for exams is key- you need to do well at both to get into Med School!
