If you have another interview coming up, or if you’re still waiting for any other interview invites, then you need to use your time wisely. But now that you’ve already had an interview, you can use this to your advantage and make the most of the experience.
Many people feel like their first interview is the one most affected by nerves, so hopefully you now feel a little calmer about your next one because you have a better understanding of what to expect.
My advice would be to write down everything that happened in your first interview. Make a note of every question that came up, everything you remember saying in your answers, and then analyse it all. Were you pleased with your performance? Is there anything you would want to change? Are there any areas that you need to do more reading about, such as medical ethics or NHS hot topics? Learn from your mistakes, and use them to enhance your next performance.
Remember that you still need to keep studying! Your mind might be preoccupied with your interviews, but it’s vital that you stay on top of all your revision as well.

So try to balance your time appropriately and organise your notes early.
I believe this is the most important piece of advice. The application process can be a very stressful experience – perhaps even more stressful than Medical School itself, some would argue!
However, there are (at least) 3 reasons why you should focus on keeping calm:
