Nottingham Observational task for vet interview

Just wondering if anyone knows anything about the observational task that's meant to be sent out 2 days before interview as, having looked around I can't find much at all. Also, if it is commenting on videos how are we meant to prepare beforehand? Any advice would be greatly appreciated :smile:
They probably ask people not to discuss it to give everyone an equal chance

Thank you, I appreciate this. I just want to know whether I need to set time aside within these 2 days...

I've got my Surrey interview in Jan but I'm worried about the new software, do you have to talk for the full 4 mins or can you skip if you've finished your answer? Also completely agree with the poker faces lol

Honestly im sure it went better than expected. I am a current 4th year april vet at nottingham. In my interview in the obersvaetional bit (it was in person so slightly different) i did horrific and i came out and was sobbing on the floor but i still got an offer!
