Be prepared that anything you mention on your personal statement is fair game for an interviewer to ask about, and then potentially expand upon.
But knowledge of the realities of the profession and some basic facts such as what you are vaccinating for in dogs and cats etc won't go amis.

Read the interview preparation thread.

The following are fair game:
  • Questions about anything at all that you wrote on your personal statement, work experience forms, or any other documents that the university has received.
  • The cliché, 'why do you want to be a vet'.
  • Simple questions about work experience; things that you should have picked up during your time in practice, for example vaccinations and worming protocols.
  • An explanation of a case study you saw while seeing practice.
  • Questions about your personal traits, e.g. "Describe a situation when you used X skill"
  • Questions about animal welfare and ethics. Your opinions on controversial issues surrounding veterinary medicine/farming/animal research etc
  • An ethical dilemma/scenario, where you're asked what you should do in a certain situation.
  • Questions about your understanding/exploration of the veterinary profession. Have you looked into all the avenues that veterinary graduates can go down? Do you have realistic expectations of the career?
  • Calculation (MMIs) - some simple vet-related maths. May be done with or without a calculator. Usually several questions done step-by-step.
  • Practical task (MMIs)

If a grizzly bear had a fight with a silverback gorilla, who would win and why?

If you had to choose one or the other, would you rather sleep in a cage of a thousand black widow spiders or eat a thousand cockroaches (over 2 days)
