A candidate’s overall score is divided up equally between the two parts of each of the  two interview sections. The scoring domains that are assessed are listed in the table below:

Management section Presentation
  • Content
  • Presentation skills

Management Scenario
  • Probity & Professional integrity and awareness of safety & ethics
  • Judgement under pressure & prioritisation
  • Communication
Clinical section Clinical Scenario 1
  • Clinical skills & knowledge
  • Judgement under pressure & prioritisation
  • Communication
Clinical Scenario 2
  • Clinical skills & knowledge
  • Judgement under pressure & prioritisation
  • Communication

Each of the scoring domains in the far right column is scored from 0-6 according to the following:

  • 0 – No Evidence
  • 1 – Very Poor
  • 2 – Weak
  • 3 – Satisfactory
  • 4 – Good
  • 5 – Excellent
  • 6 – Outstanding

Remember the interviewers are there to help you get maximum marks so if they are moving you on from one topic to another that means you have got all the marks in that domain, or that there are more important domains to focus on .
