Typical stations within an MMI
All MMIs are different and it is unlikely you will be told exactly what you will face on your interview day. However, the diagram below demonstrates the types of assessments typically used in MMI stations and provides an overview of how you could prepare for each one.
Behavioural interviews ask you to describe and reflect on events in your past. Situational interviews present you with a situation and ask what you would do in that situation.
Prior to assessment, think through examples of where you have demonstrated behaviours, attributes and value in line with those previously identified: you should include any work experience. However, be prepared to respond to the specific questions the interviewer asks. During the interview, be specific. Explain what you did, the steps you took and what the outcome was.
You are asked to act out a scenario with a role player. You may be required to take on a different persona. This gives interviewers insight into your interpersonal skills, and how you may respond in real-life interactions with others.
Try to pretend that his is a real-life situation and respond to the role player as you would do in normal life.
Listen to what the role player has to say, engage with them and respond accordingly.
You may be asked to present information back to the interviewers on a certain topic. You may or may not be informed of the topic in advance of the MMI.
Read the information carefully.
Take the time to plan key points effectively
Present back you information clearly and concisely.
If you have time, think about what questions the interviewer may ask you in advance.
