Besides the ATAR and UMAT, the interview is the last remaining assessment medical schools use to select the best candidates each year. However, it’s despite its overwhelming importance (most interviews are 20 mins to 90 mins long but worth as much or more than the UMAT), many med school candidates tend to overlook the complexity of the interview and arrive on the day blatantly unprepared. Since interviews are held as early as around the early 20th of Nov (yes, anywhere between a few days to 10 days after your final exams), the term 3 holidays become a critical time to start preparing.
