    Congratulations - is this the Gateway or the D100?

    I only know what is published on the RVC Vet Med Selection Process...

    "Interviews follow a multi-mini interview (MMI) format. The interviews are designed to test different attributes and characteristics at each station and are intended to test applicant’s nonacademic attributes and suitability for the course. Applicants will also undertake an observed group task for which they are scored and this is added to their total score. Further details will be provided to successful applicants in their interview invitation."

    As it says, you should be provided further info in your email - I believe this may include the MMI station topics

    Tips - Know your personal statement and work experience inside out. Refer to Interview Preparation thread at the top of the forum.

    Good Luck

    I applied for the accelerated course (so D102), as I'm applying as a graduate
    The email doesn't go into too much detail, it just says that they want to assess your knowledge of the veterinary career, curiosity, understanding.... but it doesn't say anything else apart from that and mentioning that there's 15 stations with one group interview.
    Thank you for your tips anyway I'll definitely have a look at the forum.

    Hi there I'm in my 3rd year studying Vet Med at the RVC and I'm intercalating at the moment. My interview was awhile ago and we aren't allowed to say the specifics about the interview process to prospective students as it could give an unfair advantage. However, the information you are given in the interview invitation is invaluable. One thing I would say is don't worry too much, many of the interviewers are lecturers and they really want you to do well so they will help you as much as they can . Just take a deep breath, try to relax and let your enthusiasm come through . We are all rooting for you and for me it was one of the nicest interviews I had so don't panic its not as bad as it sounds I promise . Hope that helps and any questions feel free to message me

    Out of interest, did applications for your chosen pathway close on the 15th of October like most of the courses?
    I've applied for the gateway course which doesn't close until January so was unsure if interviews would take place before closing.
