    I have to resit some maths modules since I panicked in the exam hall. Too may non related exam things can go wrong in a an exam.

    What are your actual grades, of you don't mind me asking?

    Hi, just trying to find lambing Work Experience for next year, I've been looking on the NSA lambing list and been rejected a few times and struggling to find more that would take me... does anyone who has already done their lambing have anyone I could contact? Anywhere would be fine but I live in the midlands so any nearby would be great! Kind of worried I won't get any lambing experience before I apply next year!
    Have you tried just general yellow pages/googling sheep farms locally? Or going to agricultural shows? As this was how I found mine. Just email/ring as many people as you can and someone should take you on.
    The lady I went to had never had work experience students before but she was wonderful, she had rare breed sheep so did AI and embryo transfer too, ended up being one of my best placements.
    Unfortunately I'm not very near to you as I'm south-east. Hope this helps

    No actually I haven't- I'll start looking now!! I guess I didn't even think about that as everyone I've known doing vet med found theirs on the lambing list haha. That sounds so good! Hopefully I can find someone!! Thanks a lot

    There was a 3000 character limit I think. Basically just 3 solid paragraphs. How much did you write then?

    Providing you were within the limit and not hugely below, then I wouldn’t have seen an issue. For assignments most universities go by + or - 10%

    Have they fed back to you that it was due to this?

    - edit, sorry pressed reply to the wrong person.

    Nope I phoned them today and they said they aim to let us know by xmas and will be holding interviews between January and March.

    English students are not being interviewed until Feb/March apparently. The dates are now on the website. They are aiming to give 3 weeks notice for interviews but didn't say today that we'd find out before Christmas.
