This interview format provides a high level of interaction between you and the interviewer. It gives you a chance to demonstrate more than just a taught knowledge of your chosen field of science.
MMIs are a better predictor of academic performance and professional behaviour than traditional panel interviews. This format also allows us to assess more candidates in a shorter period of time, which means you will get the results of sooner.
Medical students at Oxford University and Cambridge University may apply for direct entry to the third year of our Medicine MBBS course through the Metropolitan Oxbridge Common Admissions Group (MOCAG) admissions scheme. Information and application forms can be obtained from individual tutors at Cambridge colleges or from the Oxford Medical School at John Radcliffe Hospital.
With the exception of the MOCAG Admissions Scheme, we are unable to consider transfers from other courses or from other institutions.
We define extenuating circumstances as unforeseen and outside of an applicant’s control. The circumstances must demonstrate that there has been a substantial, serious impact on your academic studies and results.
For example, such circumstances would include: health and personal problems, disability or difficulties with schooling. Whilst St George’s is keen to widen participation for particular groups, we are required to ensure that you as an applicant can cope with the rigours of, and are suited to, the programme you apply for.
Please note that we cannot consider extenuating circumstances in regards to degree classification for application to the Medicine (Graduate Entry) programme.
Who can complete the form
You will need to ask a representative or teacher at your school, college or university to complete the Extenuating Circumstances Form for Applicants (please note that this form is only for use by applicants and not current St George's students).
If your school or college is unaware of your circumstances, the form can be completed by another official such as a GP or social worker. Forms completed by family members unfortunately cannot be considered.
How and when the form needs to be submitted
The form needs to be completed and submitted by a representative or teacher at your school or college or university within 15 working days of you submitting your application form (UCAS or direct applications)

What else you need to include
It should include any information that is relevant to the application and the circumstances. Formal supporting documentation (e.g. from a GP) can also be attached. This will ensure that the Admissions Tutors are able to accurately assess the circumstances in context with the academic record.
