    Hi everyone,
    Just wondering if anyone has applied for Bristols veterinary gateway?
    I applied for the Bristol Gateway, but unfortunately I got rejected without an interview and I am not too sure why. What were your predicted grades? Mine were ABB.
    I have also applied for the Nottingham Gateway, but have not heard back yet either.

    Good luck with Nottingham!

    Thanks I wish you luck with Bristol.
    What diploma are you doing, if you don't mind me asking. And I never knew you could get in with a city and guilds diploma.

    I got interviewed on the 7th December. And am really upset about the decision as I did over 18 weeks of work experience and gave up all my holidays to do it. So I do not understand why 2 gateway courses would not want me

    My interview was at Nottingham on the 7th aswell! How uncanny! I had the same feeling with RVC, but don't worry about it I'm sure it was interview skills as opposed to experience personality etc. You reapplying next year?

    Yeah but would have to get AAA as not reapplying for a gateway as there are too few a places. Or if not, I will just resit my A levels. So unfortunately I will be taking a gap year this year which is not what I wanted.
    Also, how much work experience did you do?

    I haven't counted any weeks but I worked at a vet practice for a year and did seasonal lambing for 3/4 years I've also owned horses since I was like 5 and done pony club and camp etc. I also did the odd day at places like dairy farms and equine hospitals and went to talks with vets doing research in laminitis and dentistry and things. Then I did some voulunteering within the pony club when I stopped attending myself. I also did a week at WMSP So I don't actually know in weeks how much I did but it was a lot!!

    Good luck with Bristol and Nottingham!
    Do you think I might be on a waiting list for Nottingham gateway? As if some offer holders end up going somewhere else, they would have to give the place to another applicant. But they did not say whether I was on a waiting list or not...

    I think with waiting lists it's a bit weird where sometimes they offer you if you want to be on one or you can ask. If you're unsure I would definitely contact them and ask if you want to be on it.
