    Foundation year (6 year course)? Had a friend who had a couple of offers for vet med, but she just missed the grades by quite a bit but as she performed very well in interview and as an applicant they offered her the chance to go via the foundation course. It's still very competitive, but it takes the pressure off the grade side (so maybe BBB/BBC I guess? you would have to check).

    Hello,

    I am not sure if this is what you would want to do but have you consider doing something like Veterinary Nursing? I have seen some Foundation degrees that have lower entry requirements. I do not know if it is possible to top up these Foundation degrees to a Full degree.

    You could try to get in via the gateway programmes which are offered at Nottingham and RVC. It just means you're basically doing a "pre-vet" type year then continuing on with the normal vet med course! The entry is a bit easier grade wise!
