Ive also applied to Liverpool, Nott and Surrey and i got interview from Liverpool and Surrey last week. I dont think Nott has sent out anything to anyone yet. For Surrey, make sure to check their portal and the events section because they dont send interviews through email!

Im trying to find as many questions that they might ask as I can. Just through google and things. Everything I read tells me not to memorise answers, be prepared but rehearsed answers will be easier to mess up.
One of the practices where I’ve done my work Experience, one of the vets there helped me with my personal statement and things. He’s going to do like a mock interview and I’m going to do one in work as well. (I don’t work in a veterinary related area, but interview practice is good)

I dont really know how to prep for it being an MMI format. I think it will be easier than a traditional panel interview, because if you mess up one station, it wont ruin the whole interview.

Kind of panicking I don’t have a Surry interview now. I thought I did quite well in their questionnaire and situational question. They say interviews run from Nov to Feb so I know there is still time but still.

Yeah it's easier said than done but don't worry about Surrey too much, they've only JUST started sending interviews out. I'm worried because I don't think I'll have enough practice before the interviews Do you know when Nottingham will start sending interviews out?

How many weeks do you have? Ive got the minimum for Liverpool, which worries me slightly. But five weeks is more than they ask for at the other universities so hopefully it will be ok. I hear about people with 10+ weeks and it freaks me out. Nottinghams are later as far as I know. They don’t actually give you time frame like the others do. Latest they could start interviewing would be Jan/ Feb id expect.

I've got 6 weeks but i could only put 5 for Liverpool as they don't allow you to put more than 1 week for each placement. I agree, when people have so many weeks of experience because they have such and such connection, it makes me doubt my self. I try to tell myself that the unis only care that you have met the minimum. Which uni is your first choice?

Defo Liverpool. I live in N. Ireland so its the easiest one for coming home. I would love to get into any tho. 😂 Im a mature student and I took a few years put since the last time I applied so everything changes every year so its really hard to keep on top of everything.

I know the feeling. You should get at least a few interviews. Your work Experience sounds more than enough.

The requirements for work experience were way lower bavk then. I never actually made it to interview, I did really badly in my alevels. But I’ve repeated them since then and have the grades now.
