    RVC do a scoring system, they score your work exp (which they dont prejudice applicants over the minimum for), then your grades (so for me 3a* 7a wasnt enough, and 4as at AS) then ur PS and your Contextual Info is scored, and my PS was very good, still unsure as to why i was rejected
    That’s odd...I got 5As and 5Bs at GCSE, but that said I do attend a level 3 contextual school and I think I live in a low participation neighbourhood in addition to having a long term illness, which they must have taken into account

    I can definitely understand where you’re coming from - we all know just how much work is involved and it must suck for you for RVC to not to even recognise that

    Where else have you applied?

    For those who have been rejected by Nottingham I just wanted to say I’m very sorry. Rejection is very difficult to accept but try not to let it get you down too much (easier said than done, I know!) When my daughter was applying she had 6 A*s and 5 A’s at GCSE, 4 A’s at AS, and predicted AAA at A level (which she subsequently achieved) She also had around 15 weeks WEX but she was still rejected by Notts without an interview. Luckily she received interviews at Liverpool, Bristol and RVC and she’s now a second year at Liv.
    Lots of her friends at Uni were also rejected by Notts so maybe they are looking for something slightly different in their applicants, compared to the other Vet schools?
    Good luck with the rest of your applications/interviews and getting the grades in the summer. If the worst comes to the worst a gap year is a good thing as the course is very intense so having time to de-stress after A levels and using the time to earn some money and possibly travel can only be a benefit.
    Fingers crossed for you all! X

    I doubt anyone has, interviews probably won't start until Jan/Feb. Seems to only be rejections so far

    Has anyone noticed when attending interviews how there are many more girls than boys interviewing and yet on the tours after interview the ratio of boys to girls studying vet med are very equal.

    It would seem to me that if you are a boy the chances of an interview/offer are greater purely because there are fewer applying.

    This isn't the case as far as I know, I actually asked this at two open days and both said their admissions are respective of that of the ratio applied. It's generally 80:20, at LPool atleast.
