You are in the Medicine Forum and might do better in the vet med one

For vet med Cambridge is the only uni that requires an entry test and this is what it says in their requirements "All applicants for Veterinary Medicine for 2025 entry are required to take the Engineering and Science Admissions Test (ESAT)"

all vetmed unis have their own entry test -some more lengthy/demanding than others. Check each individual uni’s website for more info on their particular entrance tests.

Generally you’ll have an SJT (a situational judgment test which tests your empathy and other decision making skills)
an interview (either panel or MMI)
and maybe also a few written essay questions e.g why do you want to become a vet (500 words)

(Vet applicants don’t do UCAT as they do the unis own entrance tests)

hope that helps :P
