    What happened??
    Got rejected from all four unis and asked my college for advice. They were talking about taking degrees I do not want to do and course transfers, which is impossible for vet med. Its annoying as no one I listening to.me, I can't do anything and my teachers are trying to support me but they let me down in the first place.

    From what I have observed in such cases, applicants either switch to other, related courses (which you said you don't want to do), take a gap year or study outside the UK. Have you considered these? When there's passion there's will. An obstacle, as heart-breaking and immobilizing as this is, won't stop your way towards VetMed just because you love it so much. So now you have the reality, and you need to come up with a plan. I know you're heartbroken but in 10 years you will be looking back at this experience and smile as it will guide you on a path that's meant to be for you. In my language we have a phrase that goes a little like every obstacle can only be good. I'm here to help with anything you need. Good luck, I believe in you.

    Hoping I can pull myself together with my a levels and smash the AAA requirements. Then I can laugh in my colleges face that I didn't predict me AAA.

    I know you must be desperately disappointed but the best thing you can do now is just try to put this behind you for now and concentrate on getting your grades in the summer and reapply. Best of luck 😊

    Being rejected from all four unis is a nightmare.
    If you smash your A Levels, you could apply to some Australia unis with your actual grade for their Feb 2019 intake- theres tons of them that have AVMA accreditation, it's definitely an option!

    It's what I'm going to do if none of my interviews work out D:

    Stay positive in the meantime. You should buckle down and ace your A levels, I'm sure with your willpower and determination you'll knock them out of the park. There's always options out there, please don't let rejections stop you from your path. Your sheer persistence is probably one of the greatest indicators that you would make an amazing vet

    Just got an email from surrey inviting me to take part in a christmas quiz... For a second I thought it was an interview invite haha so sad

    Same, I've been rejected from the accelerated course and I'm on track for a 1st, which doesn't make any sense. Got an interview for the 5 year course but I don't really understand the way they're assessing the applications...
    You've got to realise that say 600 apply for accelerated and they only send 300 interviews, even if all 600 applicants tick all the boxes - they will still have to turn eligible people away. It's a shame but they have to narrow it down somehow and it could be the slightest thing in someone's PS that makes them choose them. And then they only have 90 places, so unfortunately they do have to reject even the most suitable applicants

    Well said!
    The problem with vet med is that it is so competitive.
    Even if you have the right grades, work experience and personal statement, you are not guaranteed a spot...
    It's all very frustrating...
    All we can do is hope for the best....
    All we need is an offer from one uni...
    Sit tight guys, and good luck to everyone

    I know it's extremely frustrating for everyone that is still waiting but I feel I must repeat what the admissions officer said at my RVC interview ...

    They are facing extreme work loads, trying to get through everyone's applications in a timely manner while still spending enough time on each one. The more of us that phone and email to chase their application status, the less time the admissions staff have to spend on your applications and as a consequence, the longer you will have to wait for a response.

    It's a horrible wait... but everyone is in the same boat. Stay strong and try your best to be patient!!

    Best of luck to everyone and I hope you aren't kept in too much suspense over Christmas

    Hmmmm... I put it under 'exam results'
    I thought an academic certificate would be a HSDP diploma or something
