This training is designed for students who are applying for medical school 2019 Entry. We aim it for students in their second year of A-level but welcome any one who wishes to learn. Includes graduate entry and those applying for foundation year medical programmes.
It is designed for students at all levels, from those who have had previous experience in medical school interview and those who are learning for the first time.
What will I learn?
Here are some of the topics we can cover on our personal training for 2019 entry: -
Personal assessment stations including your motivation for medicine and choice of medical school. Critique of your work experience, personal statement and knowledge of the qualities of a doctor including resilience and leadership.
Critical analysis and team working stations, including group exercises, practical tasks and data interpretation.
Your research for medical school and ethics. This includes recent hot topics, ethical principles, capacity and consent, conflict of interest and duties of a doctor.

Your knowledge of the medical school curriculum including teaching methods used at medical schools including PBL.

Examples of the the 10% of stations that you cannot prepare for.
We will go over example marking schemes used by medical schools and highlight where candidates often make mistakes and how to put them right.
We will look at a candidate journey to show you how you can best prepare for your medical school interview.
We will demonstrate techniques that you can use when you are stuck to try and salvage marks.
If we have dental and veterinary medicine students on the course, we will add sessions specific to these applications.
Why should you go on this training?
We believe that over 90% of the content of most medical school interviews can be prepared for. This is from our feedback from students last year and our own personal experience. This means your chances of securing a place at your choice of medical school is much better if your do the correct preparation.
We have done all the hard work and research for you, so you can concentrate more on your A-level studies.
Why use Blue Peanut for your training?
We research and deliver all courses ourselves. That means your tutor will be Dr Mannan MBChB, MRGCP or Dr Khan MBChB, LLM, FRCGP. We are a fully qualified practicing doctors who also teach at medical students. We will never get medical students, administrators or random tutors to teach you.
We could sit on medical school interview panels – but this would be a conflict of interest. It is not fair for us to teach you and then interview you in your real interview!
We look after medical students in our own GP surgeries, as well as providing work experience placements for sixth form students. We also teach junior doctors who are training to be future general practitioners.
We do teach at top local sixth form schools in East Lancashire on a voluntary basis, such as Clitheroe Grammar School, Bacup & Rawtenstall Grammar School and Tauheedul.
We provide you with e-mail and, if needed, telephone follow up just in case the medical school provides new information before your interview that we did not cover.
What do your recommend in terms of sessions?
To cover most of the medical school curriculum we recommend you book two sessions. Each session is approximately two hours in duration with coursework in between. Some students also follow this up with a personal MMI simulation with us under exam conditions.
