Hey,

So this idea was suggested by @animalmagic and I thought it was a really good idea so I made a thread!!

This whole process is very stressful for those waiting for news on interview invites/offers and a thread that applicants use to keep their application journey up to date could ease that stress a little bit. Hopefully it will give people a rough idea of when to hear decisions or that they're not the only ones in the dark. It should also give future vet med applicants a vague idea of what grades/work experience are required, and show a wide range of profiles from different types of circumstances - it's alot more than grades and w/e sometimes.

You would post once only, then edit your post when you have news to add e.g. an offer or rejection.

Here's a template to copy and paste, but please feel free to add/remove/change details:

Year of entry:
Type of Applicant (rUK/Scottish/EU/International):
GCSEs (or equivalent qualification):
AS grades (orequivalentqualification):

Actual A Level Grades (or equivalent qualifications):
Previous Degree:
Work Experience:

Universities applied to and Decisions:

Work experience form/SJT/any other screening?:

Decision:

Let me know if you think I've missed anything, or have any opinions on improvements or anything.

(there's a stalking page here but I personally find it confusing to read.)

If anyone wasn't aware, University Connect was set up for this purpose. I appreciate it's poorly advertised and poorly formatted in that it lumps vet medicine with nursing and other animal-related courses (and also floods you with notifications...) but there's some older profiles on there if you're interested.



I'll put my info here one day EDIT: that day is today...
