The Multiple-Mini Interview format is now widely used by schools and institutions. The format allows applicants to be tested in a range of skills and situations while reducing the level of fatigue that can come from a single extended interview.
The MMI format may see you moving through a series of eight or ten interviews, often in adjoining rooms. Each room or station will often have the question taped on the wall outside the door. You have two or three minutes to consider your answer, and will then be ushered in to give your answer and address any follow-up questions, in a session that will generally run about seven or eight minutes.
