Preparing for your Ophthalmology ST1 interview is daunting. All the hard work you put into improving your portfolio might be wasted if you don’t prepare properly for the rest of the interview.
Plenty of people will tell you that the interview is just on content you already know. Or that you’re already doing the job, so you don’t need to prepare.
Don’t listen to them!
The top candidates on the day will have spent months preparing answers to all the potential questions. If you want to match them, you need to treat your interview like an exam.
Your preparation should focus on two areas: Content and Delivery
The Ophthalmology ST1 interview is knowledge intensive. If you don’t have the right content in your answers it doesn’t matter how slick your delivery is, you won’t get the marks.
Similarly, your knowledge could be consultant level, but if you don’t deliver it well, all those hours in the library will be for nothing!
Our Ophthalmology ST1 mock interviews will give you a clear insight into the level that is required to get a top training job.
We have written 5 mock interviews using questions from the 2017 interview and each question has a comprehensive model answer. The entire interview is covered and our model answers will demonstrate the level required to score highly.
All of our content is written by authors who have scored highly at interview and have secured some of the most competitive Ophthalmology ST1 jobs.
Best of all, we’ve presented it in an easy to understand format, on a platform that you can access anywhere.

It’s easy to assume that because you do this every day at work, you don’t need to prepare for this station. This isn’t true and many people are disappointed with their score here. We’ll show you how to ace this station.
When we prepared for our interviews we spent months finding the right resources with knowledge at the required level.
This involved scouring the internet and talking to trainees who had recently been successful. For those of you that have tried to do something similar, you will know this can be painstaking! And the advice can be variable at best!
In the end however, it was worth it. We were able to comprehensively prepare for our interviews and achieve our dream jobs.
