The MMI consists of four sequential interview stations. At each station, you’ll be interviewed for eight minutes, followed by a two-minute changeover (i.e. 10 minutes per station), with a circuit that takes 40 minutes to complete. If you haven’t been invited to
participate, you cannot request for an interview.
