The only resource you need for Core Surgical Training ST1 interviews.

You spend more time finding a practice partner and figuring out what to learn than actually learning. Stinterview simplifies your revision process, we provide a question bank and multiple peer mock interviews so you can focus on your interview prep. 

Over 200 interview questions

High yield questions written by top scoring candidates. Helpful and thorough mark schemes

Unbeatable Value

Questionbank access comes with free mock-interview network access. Practice stations you've not seen, with people you've not met before.

Optimised for practice

We've created checklists, timers and other features to help you revise alone or with a peer.

Join the first and only network for mock interview practice

The best way to hone your skills and familiarity with the interview process is through practice. We will host virtual mocks for our subscribers to simulate the interview with each other using our interview resource.

Discounts for practice pairs and groups

Whilst many of our resources are adapted also for solo practice, we recognise the importance of practicing in groups. For those already practicing - we offer discount codes for revision pairs, triplets, quadruplets! Email us at for a coupon.

Mock Interview schedule

"Consistency is the best teacher."
We're planning 5 punchy, 1-hour mock interview workshops. Usually we release 2 new stations for practice at each of these. You get paired up with someone new, and time each other in exam scenarios. Keep a look out for the blog posts announcing these.

The mock interview workshops are free for all paying subscribers of the question bank. There’s no additional fee for joining, and we encourage you to come to as many as you can.

Our first provisional date for the mock interview is the 23rd of October. Keep an eye out for a blog post update. 

These sessions usually last around 90 minutes, we send around some videos beforehand to help candidates who have had less experience with acting, doing mocks, etc. These tend to take place on a Saturday or Sunday morning, and we make sure a current CST is present to field questions.

The workshops are practice sessions for you, and thus won’t be recorded – even if you don’t attend, your question bank will have the new stations released on the workshop dates so you can practice with a friend in your own time.

For the 2020 entry, the competition ratio was 605 posts to 2322 applicants – the ratio was 3.84. However, don’t let this put you off! It’s a structured process and practice makes perfect.

Yes! These have been developed closely base on the experience of people who have done the 2022 interviews virtually. Currently, the question bank is ready for practice but we are rolling out updates in early October. 

Six months from purchase

HEE has indicated that the formats will remain the same this year. Like you, we await confirmation from the college – stay tuned for our blog posts summarising the 2022 interview format from the official posts and the Royal College of Surgeons.
