    Thank you 😋 the offer is a normal Bristol one AAA! My predicteds were A*A*A for Biology, Chemistry and Physics. I had a fair bit of work experience here and there but I probably went a bit overboard hope your application goes well!!!

    That's great!! You must be so relieved, can't imagine how thrilled you must be!
    My predicteds are A*A*A* in biol Chem and maths, but I'm just worried I'm lacking slightly in work experience. I have quite a range but am just finishing my 9th week, does this sound reasonable to you?

    Congratulations on your predicteds! Nope 9 weeks sounds absolutely plenty as long as they’re in a couple of different places

    It's so exciting!! I just really want to get Bristol under my belt so that I can chill through any interviews I get in other places 😂 Isn't it so strange that you might meet lots of people on here you've spoken to at uni. So pleased for you, and goodluck with your A levels etc, I'm sure you'll ace them!

    I sent my application on the 10th October. I more than meet the grade requirements. Slightly confused how people who applied at the same time as me have already had an offer whereas I haven't even had the work experience questionnaire!😪

    I know it's really frustrating but hang in there. There's probably absolutely nothing to be read into it at this stage.

    During my application cycle (2015, I'm very wrinkly), Bristol kept some people hanging even after all the interviews had taken place, only to reject them shortly before the deadline. I absolutely agree that it would be more fair to have everyone do a work experience questionnaire first, but at least hopefully changing their method of assessing applicants will mean that they don't keep people hanging on for as long!

    Bear in mind that in the past, Bristol only gave work experience questionnaires to people that they had already invited to interview; work experience (other than that written about in the PS) wasn't used as a factor for giving out invitations. It may be useful therefore to this year treat the questionnaire as an alternative 'interview invitation'.

    How long did people who have offers from Bristol have to wait after submitting their WEPAPA?

    Pretty sure offer-holders have already answered this over in the general 2018 VetMed Applicants thread - from memory, I think most of them said about 3-4 weeks? As they submitted the WEPAPA form at the start of October and received offers etc at the end of the month. Hope this helps
