Check all the entry requirements but I would probably say no, as many of them will reject you straightaway if you don't have the predicted A in biology

Hi everyone!

I got my questionnaires through from Nottingham today. I'm so excited!!

Anyway, I've been completing some WEX forms and I was wondering if Whipsnade Zoo's Zoo Academy course would count as work experience, as well as volunteering at a local animal based charity? Thank you!

Did you actually go to Whipsnade Zoo for this course?

Hey, I'm applying to Surrey as my only vet med option (I did worse in my exams than expected, currently on my gap year) I have 34 points overall but I'm one grade down in chemistry, how strict do you think they'll be?
If your other subjects meet the requirements, they probably won't reject you straightaway but you might be at a disadvantage.
Liverpool doesn't require Chemistry, I'd say put that down as well.

Depends on if you paid to go on it or not. As a general rule, if you have to pay to actually do WEX it won't be counted

Angry cucumber I did actually go to Whipsnade for the course, it was amazing. Unfortunately I did have to pay but a friend of mine that was on the course with me also applied to Surrey and got offered a place, and she put WZZA on her WEX form. I got a reference from it as well.

A few days ago, I sent off my UCAS application and filled in RVC and Liverpool's online work experience questionnaires. I used the UCAS Personal ID that I was given this year when filling in the form. However, since my school have attached their reference and sent it off today, my Personal ID has changed (back to the same one I had last year). I've emailed the unis to ask and will ring tomorrow if there is no reply but has anyone else had this issue (and if you did, what did they say to do)? Should I resubmit the forms with the other Personal ID number?

Sent in all my questionnaires that have been asked for, along with my Surrey references...now it's the awkward waiting game :s
How's everyone else feeling?

And is anyone going to the Surrey open day this weekend, or the Liverpool open day in a fortnight?

I'm having a mare with all the different deadline dates for these questionnaires! Have finished all the papers I can do now until 17th October. It's a shame we have to repeat so much info to each uni rather than having a universal questionnaire!

Anyway, best of luck to everyone! The waiting game has begun

I know, I was just thinking that! Wish we could just submit one through UCAS for every uni, would put my mind at ease from worrying I've missed something aha

I was wondering where i should apply with AAB prediction. Tried my best but I cant get it any higher. I've got Surrey, RVC and Nottingham down right now. But I don't know what to put as my last option. I was gonna put Nottingham gateway down as I think I might qualify, but my school said I shouldn't put a gateway and a normal course down if it's from the same university because I'd just get rejected from both. What do u think I should do?

I don't think the latter is necessarily true but just make sure you definitely qualify for the Gateway I'm a bit out of date with my grade requirements but the best place to check it the uni websites. I know Liverpool & Bristol both used to give out AAB offers but you would have to check

Might be worth seeing if you're eligible for a contextual offer? I know Bristol's is definitely AAC so have a look

You are all probably not as stupid as me but remember to check each uni's work experience requirements! Didn't check liverpool's correctly and realised I needed two placements at different vet clinics within three years of applying, I have two weeks at one practice but just missed to three year mark with my other placement not sure what to do now. Any advice?

Hey, just wondering if anyone could help me, please. My school sent my UCAS application today but I completed the RVC and Liverpool WES forms a week ago. Does it matter that I completed the forms before actually submitting my application? Of course I entered my UCAS ID and everything and got confirmation emails that I'd submitted the forms, but I don't want to miss the chance this year because of a mistake with the WES forms! Thanks
