Candidates applying for the 2022 Core Surgical Training interviews have to complete a set of self-assessment questions during their application. Candidates who are shortlisted will then have the opportunity to upload evidence to support their answers and these will be validated by members of the interview panel prior to your interview date. Your scores for these make up a significant proportion of your overall interview score. You have to provide evidence to support your answers for each question and can get referred to a probity panel if you are suspected of trying to mislead the interviewers. Once validated, the highest scoring 1,100 candidates are invited to a virtual interview.

The 2022 Self-Assessment Questions and their weighting are available via the links below as well as the 2022 Applicant Handbook. The Self-Assessment Questions change slightly every year so don’t rely on them being the same in future years.
