    What are the requirements for dublin in terms of Alevels?
    How would you apply as it's not through UCAS?
    Not sure what the requirements are for A level as I'm not applying with them (just check out thier webisit there's even a point calculator! -https://myucd.ucd.ie/program.do?programID=52)
    you apply through a website called CAO which is the UCAS equivalent

    It's not the grades I'm worried about, my GCSEs are quite good. Really my question was, could I put Nottingham as my firm choice and Edinburgh as my insurance even though the entry requirements are higher?
    You could do, but I wouldn't personally. If you're unlucky not to quite achieve the required grades, you're more likely to get the one you almost made the grades for.

    Can I ask, any re-applicants from the last 2014 cycle?

    If so, what are you planning with your gap year?

    I watched it! I go lambing for the first time in a couple weeks so it's getting me quite excited for that.

    Yes, saw it last night, and looking forward to it tonight! They've got a piece on the ultrasound of the ewes tonight, which I am particularly interested in

    Missed it tonight as I was at Explorers (although to be fair we had a contest to find the best pizza + chips in our area so I am feeling very fat although very happy rn ). I have an entire day of coursework tomorrow (phys and chem... boo!) so will catch up tomorrow evening

    Okay guys so I'm thinking that I may not be applying for veterinary anymore! Well it's still kind of an option but I've made two different plans instead, it's mainly because I'm scared my grades aren't going to be good enough but I'm still looking at an animal based route!

    I'm struggling to find out entry requirement conversions of English A levels (I think) to Scottish Highers for the English unis. Wondering if anyone knew them?

    I wouldn't let grades be a reason if it's what you truly want! If you're realllllyyy struggling, getting lower than B's, then fair enough Maybe you haven't found the best way of revising yet! And doing an animal based route would just make you think 'what if...' I think
    I'm no longer going to reapply because I don't think I'm 'compatible' with the course; the application process made me unbelievably stressed and depressed and I know how much the actual course has in store so :rolleyes:

    Hey,
    As someone who's probably not applying for vet med any more (and for the same reasons). I can empathise. Changing your mind can be daunting, but it's better to decide exactly want to do before you apply for courses, so in a way it's good that you've come to this conclusion now. Best of luck with whatever you choose to do and well done for making alternative plans; I decided against vet med months ago and I'm still clueless :lol: ! As you say there are other animal-related careers out there and the most important thing is to do what makes you happy Promise you'll stick around on the thread, though ? We'd miss you otherwise!

    No I'm not completely giving up about the grades it's just I case I don't get the grades in the summer I want a back up option! So if I do get A's I'll still apply but if I end up coming out with some lower, especially in my sciences, I'll go with my alternative route!

    Does anyone know anything about accommodation at open-days? I seem to remember reading somewhere that some universities provide discounted accommodation for people that are planning on visiting?

    I always get really nostalgic when reading back over this thread :moon: . Some of the older posts are over a year old now, and although that isn't very old in the grand scheme of things, it seems so long ago. Some of the things I wrote about just make me miss people. A lot of the people that used to work on the farm have gone their separate ways now (there's only four people that have been there longer than I have!), and while I'm really happy that they got better jobs and furthered their careers, I do miss all the fun times we used to have . Like impromptu snowball fights, trying to salvage a charity event when the air ambulance couldn't land, and rating the firemen out of ten when they came to rescue a cow that was down. Good times :') We worked really hard and always got the work done, but we knew how to have some fun as well. I wish I still had the determination that I had back then...
