    What are your grades then?
    My predicted grades are AAA in bio, chem and maths but at AS level I got ABD. I don't know what happened with my maths and how it ended up as a D, but I've stated the fact that I'm going to do resits of the Core 1 and Core 2 modules so I don't know if they even considered that. Surrey rejected me because of my questionnaire so I hope that my grades were more successful with them

    How did you get those predicted those grades with those results? My predicted grade are ABB. managed to get a C in AS maths, which I'm really annoyed about. Didn't sit as levels in bio and chem but are consistently getting Bs in chemistry key assessments and failing bio assessments. Unfortunately, my chem and bio are at a B and it's really messing up my application. Sorry for the rant.

    Hey everyone!

    This is probably a really stupid question, but those who have had interviews (specifically Liverpool) what were you/other people wearing??

    I don’t know whether I should wear a suit or jeans and a nice top or something in between for some reason it’s stressing me out more than the interview!!

    Any help is appreciated (I’m a girl btw)
    Thanks guys!!

    Hey! I've got my Liverpool interview on Monday so I'm just gonna wear smart black trousers, a black top, heels and a coloured blazer Maybe try to avoid jeans if you can but what you've suggested sounds fine to me It's whatever you feel most comfortable in is the most important thing. Hope that was helpful!

    been creeping on this thread for a while. thought I would finally make an account and say hi c:

    got interviews from the RVC, Glasgow, and Surrey! I'm really quite worried about all of them to be frank. Are interviewers generally very friendly? Does anyone know anything about the Glasgow interviews? (i.e. do they tend to focus on your personality, or do they focus more on your academic skills?)

    also good luck and congrats to anyone who's gotten interviews and/or offers <3 i think it's awesome that all us future vet wannabes have this place to congregate

    Do you mind me asking when you sent off your questionnaire form?
    I sent it off on November 4th and got a confirmation email on Nov 7th, so it's been 4 weeks

    just something smart, a full suit might be a little OTT! definitely avoid jeans. For me, trousers are always a safer bet than skirts/dresses because there's always a risk with the latter that they'll be a little short or it'll be windy and you'll end up flashing everyone.
    Comfy shoes are a must because most interviews have a lot of walking (from car parks, train stations, campus tours etc.). I wore heels for mine and I've seen plenty of people wear them but I would recommend taking some flats in your bag if you decide to wear heels and remember, while looking professional is good they're interested more in you as a person than the clothes you wear!

    Good luck for your interviews x

    To help Jo547 has anyone else from Scotland or EU not heard from Glasgow yet or does anyone know how long Glasgow are interviewing for? I know they interviewed throughout the last week.

    Honestly I don't know how I was predicted those grades. It might be because of how I do in class but I just think because I got 3 A*s in GCSE science and an A in GCSE Maths they have too much faith in me and that just adds pressure to me to do well

    I suppose different colleges work differently.

    Same, I still haven't heard back from RVC and not knowing if they can still send out interviews is stressful

    Hey! I've not sat my RVC interview yet, but I sat my Surrey interview last Saturday (25/11/17) and received an offer the following Monday (27/11/17).

    At Surrey they had a really nice welcoming presentation which helped me calm down a bit, but I was still literally shaking all the way through right up until we went in to the interview room. My interviewers weren't particularly mean, or particularly friendly - neutral is the best word, with the odd nod or smile every now and again. It was hard for me to guess whether they approved of what I was saying and that's probably their intention. Just be confident in your ability and answers and make sure you come across as such, but not arrogantly so.

    Liverpool was a massive contrast - the interviewers were all really friendly and engaged with me in conversations and debates.

    SURREY AND BRISTOL APPLICANTS

    Hey,

    Just thought I should share my sitution with anyone who hasnt heard from Bristol!

    Last week I was rejected from Bristol before even being sent the WEPAPA, as i thought this went against the admissions statement I sent an email asking why I would have been rejected so early despite meeting the criteria.

    It turns out that the WEPAPA must have gone to my junk email and as i never completed it, was automatically rejected! The admissions team have been great and re sent it but long story short, CHECK YOUR JUNK EMAILS REGULARLY!!

    Secondly, have any Surrey applicants that were interviewed on the 25th heard back?!

    I know I should be patient but Surrey is my dream and i'm worried about how the interview went!

    About Surrey: quite a few of us have now. A couple of people got an offer on Monday, then on Thursday (I think) more offers were given in addition to updates for being on the waiting list for interview (and I think for offers too).
