    Hey everyone!
    I unfortunately got rejected from Nottingham Vet School, and was offered the chance to transfer my application to Animal Science (and other similar subjects). I e-mailed to ask whether I'd be able to phone up on results day should I meet or exceed grade requirements, and was told that I could phone up the other vet schools but not Nottingham.
    Does anyone know why this might be? Has anyone had any experience doing the same thing?
    Thank you very much in advance

    I'm not sure but maybe it's because you haven't been interviewed?
    I've heard that Nottingham also have a waiting list and some people are rejected post interview, some are given an offer and some are put on their waiting list and are given a place should one become available. So it could also be because they know they will have a list of people that will be put on hold till results day. Don't quote me on that because I am not entirely sure.

    It's because you weren't interviewed I believe

    Yep. They won't take anyone who didn't get to post interview stage. Makes sense really.

    Ahhh it does make sense, it's still totally gutting though! I had a bursary for Nottingham of £1000 per year I study there for attending Sutton Trust Summer School. Here's hoping for good news from my other universities!
