    I have my application form here and trying to make myself look great and filling in all relevant information.

    I am applying as a mature student with very little experience so anything i can put down will stand to me (i hope).

    I am applying to do an animal care course and from there i have the option to go on and do veterinary nursing which is what i want.

    I do voluntary work at a shelter so that will look good but there's a couple more things i did which i am very proud of myself and would like to include it in the application.

    It asks for my school and college grades which is fine but they're not relevant. Since they're asking, il include them.

    Now here's my problem. I competed a distance learning course in animal care and i completed a canine first aid course (like a human first aid course but for dogs). Both of these courses didn't have grades. What do i write for the grade section of these courses?

    just write that you completed a qualification in it?.. or if it's not a 'qualification' just say 'completed a course in..' or 'qualified in..'

    Ya, that might work if i write it in the personal statement section maybe? Really don't know where to include the info. They have an education section with a row for school/colleges attended, qualification gained and the grade. I can fill in the first two rows but then im just leaving the grade section blank. Don't know where to include it really.
