    I have received most of my rejections for VetMed now and intend to reapply but I've heard things about people getting places through clearing and wondered if this had any truth to it?

    Yes, in 2017 and 2016 a very small number of veterinary medicine places went into clearing. I believe it was Nottingham and Surrey that opened for applicants this way.

    Don't rely on this as prior to 2016 it was completely unheard of for vet places to enter clearing (med places have started appearing here too). It seems that with increased cohort sizes more spaces are up for grabs, however remember that universities will pick from their waiting lists before opening for clearing.

    It used to be unheard of for vet courses to enter clearing and while rare has happened for the past two years with Surrey one year and a Scottish uni (I think Edinburgh?) entering clearing over this period.
    If this does not work out then definitely ask your unis for feedback it may be a simple fix!
    And don't be disheartened may people don't get in on their first attempt

    I've asked for feedback so far and everything has been very non-specific to my application, which is sightly useless. I only had 1 interview as well so it must've been my application... It's a bit disheartening because I honestly tried my best with it and got 8 weeks experience in the end and it was as varied as I could at the time...
