Core Medicine Interview Overview
All stations will be staffed by two interviewers (consultants from the interviewing region), each of whom will award you a mark on each of the aspects on which you are being assessed.
Core medicine interviews are held in each respective deanery from 18th January to 9th March (Round 1) and 3rd May to 13th May (Round 2). Each region has slightly different interview dates throughout the interview period so please check here for the latest information.
The stations for 2017 Core Medical Training Interviews are:
For each aspect, you will receive two marks - one from each of the two interviewers assessing you on each aspect; thus giving 12 marks in total .
Each of these marks will be between 1 and 5; so with 12 marks awarded, the maximum score available here is 60 .
This score is referred to as your 'raw' interview score (RIS) - ie the score awarded to your interview as a whole, before any weighting is applied.
Details on how weighting is applied to scores can be found further down this page; for information on how each individual 1-5 score is established, please see the scoring framework directly below.
- none of your 12 interview scores can be 1/5
- no more than two of your 12 interview scores can be 2/5
- your Raw Interview Score (RIS /60) must be 36 or above .
After interview, a weighting is applied to the scores in each area, as well as the 'short-list' score awarded to your application form. These scores are then combined to give your overall assessment score.
