    I just received a letter in the post regarding Nottingham saying they will consider my application for other degrees such as biochemistry, natural sciences etc. At the moment I have 3 rejections - veterinary medicine and veterinary nursing.

    I'm really happy about this however I still wish to continue with veterinary medicine, but I will at least give it a go.

    Is anyone else in this position, can you give any advice on what degree to choose?
    I got this letter today too - for me I'm just taking a gap year if I'm unsuccessful so I'm not going to go for it. However I'm pretty sure that any of these courses lead to graduate entry on to vet med so just whichever you personally find most interesting!!

    Yeah I think I will do the same. I think 8 years in university is too much for me and it is very expensive. I will still apply though, just incase I suddenly change my mind. Thats what I used veterinary nursing for but I didn't get in for some reason...

    That's great news have you only applied for 4 choices so do you still have a spare 5th choice? What degrees have they offered you?

    Thanks, I applied for 4 veterinary medicine and one veterinary nursing (as back up).

    Im waiting on Bristol and Surrey.

    They offer a wide range but the 4 overall topics are school of biosciences, school of chemistry, school of life sciences, natural sciences.

    Me too! Oh I loved the uni when I went to the open day! I don't feel prepared at all - I've read some news stuff and done some practice ones but I still feel like I'm going in blind! Have you done anything to prepare??

    Congrats!! I applied for biosciences too and I've heard nothing about it :P I had my interview last Wednesday and they told me then that we will hear around the end of February/start of March regarding the outcome of it! I'm sure it's decided by different admissions officers and even just because you got an offer for biosciences does not mean at all that you are not getting one for veterinary medicine! Congrats again

    Congratulations to you too!

    Thanks for putting my mind at ease, just thought the two admissions people might discuss applicants as I would imagine alot who applied to vet would have applied to biosciences. I had also been told that Glasgow make their decisions quite quickly so thought they were just letting me down gently! 😜

    Thanks again

    Good luck with your applications 😃

    It looks lovely! Well this is my 2nd MMI (I had RVC in December) so I think I'll be okay in the sense that I quite like this interview style, but by the sounds of it some of the stations are a bit different and I'm really struggling to find any scientific research that's relevant! Other than that I've revised a couple of case studies from work exp and some vaccs and drugs, and prepared answers for questions that are likely to be asked. It's so difficult with the vague info we've been given to know what to prepare for, but we're all in the same boat so I wouldn't stress too much.

    Mines at 12, which is ok but i'll still spend all morning crazy with nerves! I keep going over disease stuff/cases but don't know what to expect so not really sure what to prepare for!! Wish I knew more detail about the MMI as they don't really put much in the email.. Good luck with yours

    Thank you!! 😁

    I had originally thought that too but the processes take place at different times so it wouldn't make much sense and people have got offers for both before! They are interviewing in America into next month so they've still got a lot of people to review yet! Hopefully we will hear some good news at some point 😊

    No problem! Best of luck with yours too 😉
