Applicants are not allowed to share questions as it might give some an unfair advantage. I love the Nottingham assessment day, just relax and be yourself and you'll be fine. It is as relaxed as it can be, very well organised and it contains some non assessed activities and breaks as well. You can't prepare for the group task or the practical task. For the traditional style interview my best advice would be to know your personal statement inside out and be able to talk around it. Also be aware of current hot topics in the veterinary world e.g. BSE as a case was diagnosed last year in Scotland. bTB is always a good one. Changes to the law with respect to dog breeding. Alabama Rot. Breeding of dogs (and cats) with conditions that cause suffering e.g. Scottish Fold cats, BOAS in brachycepahlic dogs. AMR and use of antibiotics. Brexit and the effects on the profession. The issue with mental health in the profession and how to help your own mental health. The corporatisation of the profession.

.....and remember, just relax and be yourself

I think of the interviews I did Nottingham was actually my favourite (and my first so it must have been good to still consider it my favourite) they were very friendly and relaxed, They have changed style compared to say 5 or so years ago so reading threads on interviews passed beware not all you read is still true.

Overall as Animalmagic said, just be yourself, know your personal statement and a little about topical events and it'll be a breeze
