MMI Practice Circuits – Overview
Multiple Mini Interviews – or MMIs – are becoming increasingly popular in medical schools across the country. As a relatively new style of ability-testing, it’s hard to know what to expect. And that’s where we come in.
Our circuit consists of a full-length practice circuit. The content is written and hosted by qualified medics and medical education experts. They know how MMIs work and what they test for. Remember, The Medic Portal is officially partnered with the Royal Society of Medicine.
Each circuit lasts for half a day. It will cover all different types of Multiple Mini Interview scenario, leaving you with a clear idea of what to expect and how to succeed in your interviews.

MMI Practice Circuits – What Do They Cover?
The circuit aims to cover all commonly occurring stations. Our expert examiners are doctors and medical students. Plus, we use professional actors (from TV shows and London theatres) for absolutely authentic role plays – just like many medical schools do! The circuit covers the following:
- Problem solving.
- Work experience.
- Motivation for studying Medicine.
- Data interpretation.
- NHS hot topics.
- Breaking bad news.
MMI Practice Circuits – 20 Stations
Emulating the MMI layout isn’t easy. It can’t be practised at home, or even at school. That’s why we provide a realistic half-day simulation, which replicates an actual MMI environment. So, what will actually happen on the day?
When you arrive, you will be given a briefing on what to expect and a few top tips. You’ll then be paired up with a fellow medical school applicant. You will tackle 10 scenarios yourself, just like a real interview day. Then you will double up your learning by observing while your partner faces 10 completely different scenarios. So, you will experience 20 stations in total.
By covering so many questions, you’ll be much more prepared for the real thing!
MMI Practice Circuits – Feedback
As part of our multiple mini interview circuit, you’ll receive comprehensive written and verbal feedback from our expert assessors.
The feedback forms are full of advice, set within the framework of a detailed mark scheme. It’s a great revision tool for the run up to your real multiple mini interviews.
MMI Courses – Reviews
We know our practice circuits and courses are delivered to the highest standards. It’s nice to see that others think so too…
“I found them particularly useful for the preparation of the infamously difficult acting stations and this certainly boosted my confidence going in […] In the end, I was incredibly fortunate to receive all four offers for medicine. I cannot thank the tutors at The Medic Portal enough for their support and commitment!”
