    Have you had confirmation from UCAS and from the other universities you applied to?
    I have from Cambridge and I've got the VIP thing from Bristol but again no questionnaire, haven't heard anything from Nottingham or Glasgow

    Then your email address must be correct. I'd definitely phone Nottingham vet school admissions asap. Good luck, hope you get it sorted.

    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?
    No, there was a week from when you received the email to complete one of their forms (work experience etc) and then the SJT and questionnaire were sent out on the 17th and you had one week to complete those, so they were due on the 24th unless you had contacted them about extenuating circumstances which meant you couldn't complete them.

    Would definitely contact admissions like the others have said - hope you figure out what's happened soon!

    My email from Notts gave me from 17th - 24th to do the questionnaires.

    Hope they've messed up somewhere along the line and that they can get it sorted for you :-)

    Aaaggghhh!! Ok, so I havent received the SJT either, I definitely need to find out whats going on because I was certain I had fulfilled the academic criteria and therefore would be sent the questionnaire...also doesn't help that when I told my teacher at school he just brushed it off and said don't worry they've got lots of applicants they'll get to you eventually...

    Thank you for all your help and lets hope I can get this fixed!

    Anyone else rejected from Surrey? I was under the impression that applicants were only sent the questionnaire if they first met entry requirements... yet my letter states reason for rejection as 'entry requirements not met'. Hoping for some more detailed feedback.

    :-(
    Hi domiash,

    As far as I know, you're more than welcome to email the Admissions team ([email protected]) to ask in which way you failed to meet the entry requirements. I would advise doing this to get an understanding on how you may be able to improve your application next time if you decide to reapply

    All the best,

    Any Cambridge applicants nervous for the NSAA next thursday!? 🙈

    Also, just wondering if everyone has had their Bristol questionnaire yet? 😃
    So stressed out by it. 2nd year workload at college is so high I've barely been able to revise GCSE/AS for it so I'm just hoping it's all sunk into my brain enough...

    Hi Ashley, thanks for your reply. The first thing I did after receiving the email was to ask for some more detailed feedback. I hope someone is able to get back to me shortly as I'm quite confused how I could not have met entry requirements! :-(

    Thanks

    I applied to Fitzwilliam directly! Really loved the college and everyone was so friendly!

    I heard most open applications go to Newnham if you are a gal. I wonder where mine would have gone since im a guy 😂

    I think I'll probably do the 2 chemistry questions for the NSAA. One of the 12 mark question on last year's paper really confused me and I'm generally better at calculating stuff (with a calculator thank goodness!) than formulating nice answers under time pressure. It just really depends on the questions. The maths for paper 1 is really worrying me as I am not that great at mental maths and that section definitely took me the longest when I did it under timed conditions.

    No problem at all domiash. Now that I think about it, it might actually be better to call as the Adviser will be able to access your application, see why it was rejected and explain that to you rather than having to send emails back and forth. Plus, you would have the added bonus of being able to clarify anything they may have missed straight away if there's an issue The number is +44(0)1483682222 and you should ask for Alice Domican who is the Vet Med Admissions Adviser.

    Hope this helps!

    All the best,

    Anyone know when we will hear about interviews? I hope we have enough time between the invitation and the actual interview... I don't want the flights to be too expensive!

    I'm wondering the same thing...I have to get back from northern Norway Based on the threads from last year/year before, it seems people heard from RVC between the middle and end of November, that's the only one I know about.

    I saw on the University of Glasgow forum that they have started to give out interviews for vet med already.
