    Be aware that applicants who have already had interviews in the past are not allowed to discuss interview questions with current applicants.

    There is a thread on interview preparation already available

    Only Bristol have given out interviews so far. They're not done handing them out, though. Not even close.

    I never get the point of that. I mean yes been ethical is important but, I don't think anyone is going to write that they think its okay to steal or murder etc.

    I mean unless they do some highly nuanced Supermarket job applicant type where you can only put two answers of multiple choice and whatever you do not select makes you look bad, and all apply anyway something like,

    Racism is never okay
    Sexual assault is never okay
    Stealing from clients is never okay
    Relieving yourself in reception is never okay

    then whichever 2 you select your a bad candidate because you now think the other two are perfectly fine. and no ones knows what sort of weird algorithm they are using. However some random dude manages to guess right,

    who then proceeds to yell racial abuse at a colleague whilst relieving himself over a client in reception to distract people whilst he steals from others.

    It's not a case of thinking the other two are fine, it's a case of picking the most appropriate ethical answer. Ethics is something that comes up a lot in the veterinary medicine world, and you have to use it to make decisions for treatment etc. Imagine if you were a lawyer and your client was a serial killer, ethically you have to defend your client no matter whether you think they're a bad person or not, because at the end of the day, it's your job, because they have the right to have someone defend them. Messed up I know but ethics is very important.

    i definitely agree, the questions arent as straightforward as "would you commit murder" it would be something more contradicting, however i do find it quite confusing as the questions arent open ended and im not sure if they are separate questions for the same case study or do they link together cause it makes a huge difference.

    I never applied to Glasgow so unfortunately I don't know what the questions are like myself, but I have been asked ethical questions in other situations. If you're confused over that though you can always ask them if they are for the same case study or link together
