Plymouth is holding all interviews online via Zoom, using an MMI structure. Each applicant will be assessed across 4 stations, with a single assessor at each one.
Interview assessors are from different backgrounds and include a range of academics, medical students, clinicians, and other Allied Health professionals. The entire interview is expected to last approximately 50 minutes.
Interviews are scored using both a numerical scale and ‘global judgement.’ Each applicant’s numerical score is based on how good their response to each question was.
Global judgement scores are given through a yes, no or maybe response, and this is based on whether each interviewer would be happy for the candidate to be their Doctor in the future.
Both scores are used for deciding the interview outcome. Successful candidates will receive a conditional offer via email.
