    Just wondering has anyone else got an interview for Glasgow this Friday? ☺️
    From what I’ve heard from a few teachers and friends who have been interviewed there, Glasgow is pretty friendly and focusses more on you and your personality at the interviews than compared with the likes of Edinburgh. My Chem teacher describes it as ‘having a cup o tea with your gran’ haha

    Haha! I'm happy with the category! Do you know of anyone who has already received rejections from there prior to receiving the form?

    Good luck with your other choices, who knows Bristol might miss out on two good candidates if they make us wait much longer haha!
    I haven't heard of anyone being rejected from Bristol without having completed a questionnaire...though that doesn't mean it hasn't happened . Having said that their website states that they are judging the applications 20% GCSE grades, 30% A level predictions and 50% this form we haven't got, so for them to reject someone with only 50% of their application essentially would be pretty silly...!

    They also say that they are not taking personal statements into account this year so without getting more information from the questionnaire for all they know Ive got 6 A*s in all humanities subjects....which, impressive as it is...wouldn't make me a great vet student!

    Got an interview there but not for Friday...when I went to look round they seemed really friendly and the whole atmosphere was more like 'we want to see what you are like as a person' not 'we are trying to catch you out at every given opportunity' which is nice, and hopefully will make the interview itself easier!

    Sorry to disappoint but my acknowledgment is 10/10 - over 7 weeks and counting!
    It’s not from the day you receive the acknowledgement mail, the 4-6 week period began when applications closed; 15th October.

    Just to let you that you’re not allowed to share information from interviews since it gives some people an advantage. Most uni’s make you sign a form saying that you won’t share any information. If they find out you have been sharing examples of the questions then there may be consequences so I would probably delete this. Sorry to be so blunt but I wouldn’t want you to lose your chance at uni for trying to be nice 👍🏼
    Oh I had no idea! Thank you! I thought it'd be okay to say some stuff, but I deleted it just to be on the safe side!

    Still over 6 weeks, I'm only suggesting you don't get your hopes up on a reply by the end of the week. Another uni say 5 weeks on their website, but again that isn't happening either. All in all, it's a long haul either way.

    Yeah! The atmosphere there is so nice and chummy, makes me actually more excited than nervous to go see it again.

    Hey, I'm struggling to find any major recent vet news (like current affairs in the animal world etc) to learn about in case needed in interview.

    Can anyone possibly point me in the right direction?
