    Hey guys, I'm hoping to apply to veterinary medicine too! I am really worried though for a number of reasons.
    1. Is anybody doing an EPQ/Is it worth doing an EPQ
    2. I will only have about 8 weeks worth of work experience when I go to apply, due to the fact I only confirmed I wanted to be a vet after the year 11 summer
    3. At the moment I am only getting B/C grades in my a-levels!!!!

    Would love to hear from all the other potential vet med applicants!!

    1. only if there's something particular you want to do it on, it won't really give you an advantage or a lowered offer or anything but it can be a good experience
    2. that's fine, you'll meet every unis requirements and it's more about how well you can talk about it than how much you've done
    3. you'll improve!! keep working hard

    Starting to really worry about Surrey... I was really hoping for them.

    My surname begins in "C" but I am a mature student... are there any other mature students for Surrey? If so, have you heard anything? Everything is still saying "pending check" on my application.

    Also applied to Liverpool (but doing the wrong access course so not surprised I haven't heard), Bristol and RVC. I am getting so anxious about it all now!
    Hey, I'm a mature student/grad student too and haven't heard anything yet, still says pending check too. That means they haven't scored your questionnaire yet so as long as its not a rejection thats not bad news! Im currently in my final year at Surrey and friends of mine who applied (and got in) last year all heard at different times, it's just how they break everyone up into different interview dates I believe

    1. I'm doing one! Simply because I thought it would be good experience and something to talk about at interview
    2. So long as you have a good variety and have met the minimum entry requirements, you should be fine
    3. Keep working hard and believe in yourself (cheesy I know but true!) and you'll get those grades

    1.idk what that is but check the uni website and see if they say anything about it.

    2. I live in an urban health and safety conscious area and thus only have 5 and half weeks of experience and have an interview at Surrey, still waiting on the rest. You will need 2 weeks in a vet practice and 2 weeks elsewhere for most unis, for nottingham you need 6 weeks and I think there's one uni you need 10 weeks for.

    3. Work really hard and don't leave things to the last minute. And revise really hard for you mocks as this is where predictions come from, they usually predict one grade higher than you got. You will need 3 A's or AAB for most but A*AA for Cambridge.

    Good luck 😘😘😘

    1.) EPQ does not give you any advantage with regards lowered grade offers, etc, but might be a good idea if you have something really specific that you’d like to research. I didn’t do the EPQ because I want to focus on nailing my three A Levels, but we are all different, so do what’s best for you and your learning style.
    2.) 8 weeks is sufficient for most vet schools - of course, the more the better, but that would be absolutely fine! As long as you have a variety of QUALITY placements, you’ll be fine.
    3.) Are you in Year 1 or 2? If in Year 1 (or Year 2!) don’t panic too much at this stage; you’re at a very early stage of college - it’s a jump from GCSE! If in Year 2, you’ve still got time!! Keep going with your studying, little and often.
    Hope this helps and good luck with your application😊
