    Now that offers are being sent out, do you guys think it's okay to wait until you hear back from all of your choices before making a decision?

    I'm a bit nervous that by the time I hear from all four choices, i'll email to accept an offer and all of the spots will be filled. Is that something that could happen?
    No, fortunately this doesn’t happen. You don’t have to make a decision until you have heard back from all your uni’s

    Thank goodness! I can't tell you the anxiety having later interview dates has given me for this very reason.

    Don’t worry about it! Having later interview dates or accepting an offer right before the deadline has no consequences.

    Nope! They've stated we should be updated by December the 8th - so we have until Friday to wait!

    Hey, do any of you know how many applicants get interviewed, for example, in Surrey? And how many offers do they send out?

    Would doing a Level 3 BTEC Diploma in horse management alongside my a-levels look good on a veterinary application as I don’t have much horse related experience but am really interested in getting some? Also would it count towards work experience?

    I’m not sure, I was told that was the process and some people will get offers within the coming few weeks and the rest will be later. I’m sorry if that’s wrong but that’s what I was told!

    How do you know Liverpool give offers straight after interview? Have some people already received one?
    Liverpool gave out all offers in one go last year. You will hear before Christmas. (current student here and was told by admissions officer)

    Are you working with horses I.e physically caring for them? Or just learning the theory? Work experience only counts if you are working with live animals. It would still look good on your application even if it doesn’t count as work experience. I think it shows you have a greater interest which uni’s like.

    What Natasha_Faye said, but also consider how much time it would take away from studying your a levels - I have my own horses plus I work at a stables at the weekend and unfortunately (as much as I love it!) it is very time consuming and it's something I've had to be really careful with. Perhaps see if you definitely can't get pure and simple work experience with horses if you decide it's too time consuming as it is one of the things most unis would expect to see. Is the diploma a BHS stage? As you can complete those over a number of weeks I know. If not, might be worth looking at.

    I'm pretty sure the level 3 diploma in horse management is a full-time course itself and it is a 2 year course.

    Does anyone know where I could find Edinburgh Numeracy interview question examples? I know they are considered general arithmetic but it would be nice to get a little practice of similarly styled questions before the actual interview. 😛

    It isn't something I would consider necessary, in my year we all have very different work experience levels and types before applying. Some people had very little or even no equine experience, myself included in that, you can work on this during EMS.
    Best to focus on getting what you need to apply and get those grades than sign yourself up to something that would take too much of your time and take focus from your Alevels.
    If you really want to gain some horse experience before starting university I would aim to find a stables, or livery yard, even an equine charity, just to gain a bit of handling. You won't be expected to be a pro at all animals from day one.

    Is there any reason they sent you this? I had an interview at Liverpool last Wednesday and haven’t received this email?

    From what I know, this is a full time 2 year course and would really take away from your A Levels. I’d try to get some work experience at a yard. I started that way and now I’m a part time member of staff. Most yards are happy to get any help they can, and will teach as you go. I don’t live in the countryside at all and it was still super easy - just keep your eyes peeled and go in to places directly to ask - I’ve found emails really not worth the time as they so rarely get replied to.
    If you wanted to show extra commitment, you could go for a YELA (google it) via an RDA or Pony Club.

    I had my interview on Monday so my guess is that they’re sending it out in order of the interview dates.
