Brampton’s Medical and Dentistry applicants know practice makes perfect

Posted: 7th December 2016

Several of our Medical and Dentistry applicants were put to the test with MMI practice sessions. 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. So at Brampton College, we decided to give our students a practice run.

The MMIs are essentially a circuit of stations, each with their own task,
including problem solving, motivation for studying Medicine or Dentistry, NHS hot topics and a mock interview. Students were put on the spot with questions such as ‘Who do you think is responsible for the growing obesity issue in this country?’ and ‘What should healthcare providers consider when making decisions about a patient’s treatment?’

Saif-Abbas Chatoo, who’s applying for Medicine, found the session very useful, “I feel a lot more prepared now, especially for any ethical questions. Brampton has really helped me with my application and been incredibly encouraging and supportive.”

Michael Gabai, who transferred to Brampton to complete his A levels, is also applying for Medicine. “Today was very helpful for understanding the process of MMIs, the pressure and for just giving you the real life experience. Brampton College is very special – it prepares you much more than any other school.”

Our Medical and Dentistry applicants are considering courses at a range of universities,
including Kings, UCL, Imperial, St George’s, Cardiff, East Anglia, Exeter, Manchester and Southampton. We wish them the very best of luck.
