Interview Details and Weightings

Interviews for entry into graduate medicine come in two forms: semi-structured (SS) and multiple mini interview (MMI). Ratio refers to the number of interviewees per available place. The percentage weightings refer to how much emphasis each university places on each of the individual criteria. For example, a 50% GPA weighting means that 50% of your interview score (to determine whether or not you are offered an interview) is based on your GPA.
