    Hi, I am aware of the fact that you cannot (or at least it is very unlikely) get onto vet science through clearing, but I was wondering if anyone knew whether or not I would be considered through adjustment?
    i originally applied for biology but after receiving AAA* at A2 yesterday i thought I would consider applying for vet - something I've always wanted to do.
    thanks in advance

    Well done on your amazing results! I don't think Vet Med is available through adjustment across the board so if you are genuinely interested in applying for Vet Med then your best bet would be to apply for 2017 entry. Moreover, you would need to have a lot of work experience at vet practices and other animal-related places before you stand a chance to be considered so if you haven't had any or you don't feel you've done enough, it's time to do some! Go Volunteer! Good luck and I wish you success in whatever career path you choose!

    Unfortunately not :no: . Everybody gets interviewed for entry onto a vet med course, and if there are any spaces going spare on results day then these will go to people who narrowly missed out on an offer after interview. Some vet schools also use the BMAT, and you wouldn't get into them without sitting that.

    As CourtlyCanter said, if you're genuinely interested in veterinary medicine then take a gap year or two and apply for 2017/18 entry. There is lots of information in the ved med forum as well as on the wikis etc.
