Interview Preparations

A chance to appear for an admission interview in this university should be considered seriously. You should be thoroughly prepared to make sure that you are one of the select few to be a part of this esteemed university. A medical practitioner needs to demonstrate certain attributes besides hard work. They need to make sure that they are absolutely empathetic towards issues faced by patients and are duly serious about maintaining patient confidentiality. So make sure that you’re duly honing these skills besides preparing the basic interview questions.

Preparing the Basic Interview Questions

No matter, in which kind of university you are appearing for, make sure that you’re well prepared when it comes to the generic questions asked to you. The purpose behind putting these questions forward is to see how "relevant" you can be with your answers. Some of the general interview questions include:

  • Introduce yourself.
  • Why do you want to join us?
  • What do you know about us?
  • Why should we select you?
  • Why are you interested to pursue medicine?

Now, just a casual glance of these questions might lead you to think that they are easy to answer and that there is little need for “preparing” them. Wrong. You need to ensure that you are not coming up with randomly generic answers. For instance, you might as well jolly well think that you can go on speaking elaborately about your personal interests, likes and dislikes when you’re asked to introduce yourself. But, the interviewer would be actually looking at your interest in medicine as a subject, your willingness to excel in it. So make sure just after introducing yourself formally, you’re straightaway coming “to the point”. Explain why you think medicine is your forte, how did you realize your passion for it, etc. Follow similar pattern for other questions mentioned above as well. Framing your questions way before the interview would help.
