    Im guessing academic difficulties as it suggests looking at the modules, and if it was personal it would've probably said what is the most challenging part of studying a degree.

    Im gonna do the surrey questionnaire tomorrow after the uni of surrey replies to this thread, as i have no idea how to fill out the work experience part of the questionnaire. Should i mention the same placement in each of the species boxes or just once? And i don't know what detail it requires either.

    Can you put numerous placements in the clinical practice box or is it only asking for one?

    I'd definitely repeat work experiences for all applicable boxes and if there's room maybe add a bullet point list of basic duties regarding that specific animal

    Hey guys!
    I know you’re all probably really stressed as it’s the worst time! I’m currently in first year at Liverpool and went through the application process last year! If you have any questions or anything especially about Liverpool, Nottingham, Glasgow and Edinburgh feel free to send me a message!

    Just completed the situational judgment for Nottingham and all I can say is it was painful. How many universities use those styles of questions.

    I have applied to Bristol, Cambridge, Liverpool and Nottingham. I have now completed all addittional questionnaires and work experience info. All I have left to do until it is completely out of my hands is the Cambridge admissions assessment!! Have you had a questionnaire from Bristol?

    Does anyone know when we will possibly start hearing if we are invited for interviews? (I know the interview dates, just unsure when it is likely to start hearing back from the unis themselves).

    The wait is already seriously stressing me out!

    I'm baffled by this Surrey w/exp questionnaire. Has everyone just repeated the names of the practices in the boxes for the relevant animals? I don't feel like it makes any sense repeating yourself like that?

    I split up my placements into the relevant boxes, for example, if I did a week at a mixed sheep and pig farm I would put 3 days in the sheep section and 2 days in the pig section. I’d repeat the placement details in both but just show that it was split.
    Hope this makes sense!

    Thanks, that's really helpful. It just seems an odd layout in comparison to some of the others and I think my brain is frazzled and overthinking everything after completing so many!

    Thanks :-)

    Hey NeveWhelehan, slugsiss, luberry and Kittypollard,

    I tried ringing the Vet Med Admissions Adviser but there was no answer, and when I went to email her I got an out of office message saying that she's off until Monday 23rd Oct. Unfortunately, this means I won't be able to find out the answer to your question about the work experience section of the questionnaire until Monday But I have emailed her and I will ring her on Monday to follow up for you guys.

    I'll let you know when I have an answer from her! In the meantime, have a good weekend

    All the best,
    Ashley
    Hi again NeveWhelehan, slugsiss, luberry and Kittypollard,

    Just a quick update to say that I still haven't been able to get through to the Admissions Adviser for Vet Med. She's just returned from annual leave today so it's likely she's working her way through her emails, so hopefully she'll respond soon! I'll try calling her again this afternoon to see if I can get an answer for you guys. Sorry for the delay, just wanted to let you know that I haven't forgotten about you!! Will let you know when I get a response from her

    All the best,
    Ashley

    No I still haven't either, although it's reassuring others are in the same boat as me.

    Hey glad to hear from you! I was starting to feel old
    Notts sent me an email a while ago that said all applicants are cross-considered for all 3 courses, so there is only need to apply for one.
    Where else have you applied?

    I'm 23!

    I'm applying to notts standard one and i'm toying with the idea of the gateway there too if I'm eligible (which is very complicated and I don't know if I am or not) but not the prelim as I'm doing bio and chem A levels.

    Hey, I'm a bit confused at how to approach surrey 500 word question 1. Not sure about whether or not to include emotional challenges and how I supposed to know which specific modules I will find hard given that I can know the module title but not what exactly I will have to learn. Does anyone else know about this??

    Can you have a look at the surrey questionnaire and answer it later? Or do you have to stay on the window and answer it then?

    Hey @Lucia

    It is a bit of a hard question to answer, I agree as you could read it in a few different ways. Can't give advice as in the same boat but just wanted to let you know though that if you click the module title it gives you a lot more detail about the module including an overview, aims, outcomes, assessments, content, methods of teaching and a reading list.

    Good Luck.
