    Pretty frustrating... after the hours spent on their application process you'd hope for a little more feedback! I'm applying as a graduate too so not sure how I have 'not met entry requirements' :-(

    Good luck with the rest of your options!
    I’m applying as a graduate too! I was really frustrated when I found out too... feels like all the time applying was a waste 😣

    Definitely... so much time and effort spent getting to this point just to be rejected with no specifics :-( Fingers crossed they get back to us with some more info. At the open day Surrey said they took 35% graduates too so I was feeling quietly hopeful about my chances.

    It’s really disheartening isn’t it 😞
    Yes, I bet that made you feel more hopeful.
    Let’s just hope they’ll get back to us soon and explain why exactly we haven’t been successful. You’d think they’d take more graduates as we’ve had more experience (both in university and work placements) 😣
    Where else have you applied to?

    I'm struggling to feel very optimistic now. I've applied to Nottingham and both the standard and grad entry at RVC. What about you?

    I know, I always thought unis would favor graduates that have had so much more experience and are clearly dedicated to the profession if choosing to spend another 4/5yrs in education. I've taken a year out since graduating to work 3 jobs in order to finance the tuition fees and clock up more work experience. Having to wait another year to re-apply and do this all over again is not a nice thought right now

    Oh tell me about it! It’s such a struggle to stay positive sometimes 😞

    Oh okay, similar to me then as I’ve applied to Nottingham, RVC and Liverpool.

    Exactly! 100% more dedicated! It doesn’t make sense at all 😞

    Let’s just try and stay positive. We have 3 more chances and all we need is one to accept us.

    Let me know if you have any feedback or any more responses ☺️ x

    I'm a grad too, but they're still considering me. Did you guys upload your work experience references and your transcripts to the portal? I've been told that they're not really looking at A-level grades so they either didn't like your degrees or you didn't have the right work experience.

    I have a first class Bioveterinary Science degree, completed all my work experience references and have 15weeks+ work experience. So I'm feeling really disappointed and frustrated that I have no more info on why I have been rejected

    Congrats on still being in the running for a place!

    Yeah that makes no sense at all
    I’m in my third year of animal management so they’re more likely to dislike my degree as there’s not as much science involved. As for my work experience, I’ve done everything they asked for... horses, farm, dogs, cats, veterinary practice etc... about 500+ hours

    It seems really bizarre... I didn’t upload my work experience references as I was waiting for my last one so was going to upload them today, but I got told I was unsuccessful yesterday late afternoon...

    I'm doing Biochemistry and I only have like 12 weeks of work experience...
    It doesn't make any sense. Let us know when they get back to you guys.
    Maybe it was a mistake. Fingers crossed

    Edit: Check the portal too, maybe it will say why they rejected you

    Notts? The deadline for the questionnaires was on the 24th, so I would contact them if I were you

    Do you definitely mean Nottingham? If so I recommend that you phone admissions as the deadline to have completed their forms was a week ago. The links for them were in the initial confirmation email that the vet school sent out I believe.

    mmm...might be an issue as I never received a confirmation email...?! Also I thought that you had 1 week from when you received it to complete it, and then a further 1 week if you still didn't manage that, so there wasn't a specific date?

    I would recommend you definitely contact them then. Worth checking your spam/junk folder as well.
