    Hi everyone,
    I have just finished year 12 and am pretty much decided on taking a gap year, however will still apply this October for deferred entry rather than waiting until 2018 (also gives me a second chance if needed!)

    I have spoken to lots of vet students who did gap years, however ALL of them have been due to low AS results preventing them applying or so they can resit A level exams, however for me it currently looks like I'll get the needed grades.

    So my questions is - what cool things have other people done!? I am more interested in working than travelling, and have heard of a few people working as 'veterinary assistants' (basically one below a vet nurse), but I have no idea how you would find such a placement?
    Thanks!

    I'm not sure about others but the vet schools I applied to would not accept deffered entry because veterinary medicine courses are so competitive and have a high number of applicants each year.

    As for gap year, I'm personally planning on working as a shop assistant but still carrying on different work experience.
