    Why do offers range from AAA to ABB?

    It varies mainly due to interview performance. If you interview really well, they will really want you to go to RVC and so will offer AAB (and in some cases ABB) to encourage you to go there.

    oh right, just curious. Do other vet schools do that? I think for Med only UCL give out BBB/CCC offers.

    Not that I know off, I think all the others stick to their standard offers. Except Edinburgh which if you do 4 a-levels give offers of ABBB

    It is the equivalent to UCAS in the Republic of Ireland, only alot simpler as there is no personal statement
    In most cases selection is soley based on results and for example for VetMed where more people with AAA apply than they have places it goes down to random numbers.

    If you are a UK student would you have to pay full fees to go to UCD? - presuming you were accepted in the first place

    No, your counted as an EU student and only pay a registration fee which isn't even near as much as it is to study in the UK.
    Thats why i'm keeping an open mind about UCD. I could go there and have very little debt, if any, when I qualify and it is equally recognised by the RCVS.
