Applicants Significantly Improve Their MMI & CASPer Practice Scores with BeMo®
Arguably, the most challenging parts of the admissions process for many applicants are the dreaded situational judgement tests CASPer and the Multiple Mini Interview (MMI).
Applicants are generally not provided with detailed instructions on how to prepare in advance by official admissions and test administrators. In fact, a handful of official sources claim that it is not possible to prepare in advance for such tests and going as far as claiming that such tests are "immune to test preparation" and encouraging applicants to "be yourself".
We have already highlighted the myths about such claims in a previous report and we have advised future applicants to aspire to be their "best self" instead as part of their life-long journey of becoming future practicing professionals. We have also argued in this report that situational judgement tests are coachable just like any other tests.
In a new study highlighted here, we provide formal proof that both CASPer and MMI are highly coachable and applicants can significantly improve their practice scores with appropriate preparation.
- MMI and CASPer practice scores increased 23-27% on average with BeMo preparation programs, respectively.
- Applicants’ CASPer practice scores improved significantly by 10 percentage points going from a baseline average of 53% before preparation to 63% after just 3 preparatory sessions.
- On the other hand, applicants’ MMI practice scores improved significantly by 15 percentage points from a baseline of 66% to 81%.
- While CASPer practice test performance required only 3 coaching sessions to show improvements, MMI practice performance normally required at least 6 preparatory sessions to show improvement. Read more…
