1. Zoology
2. Bristol, maybe SGS, would have loved to go to Chester but I have commitments closer to home now
3. Predicted a DDD in my Animal Management L3, if there's anything higher I want it though
4. I got a B in English and C in Maths but I left school early and did these at college level which honestly is very rubbish and I was expected A*s in school so I definitely would've gotten them if the teachers were able to support higher level students better. Been at college since 15 though, with a pass in my Work Based Level 2 Animal Care, DD in my Btec L2 and a DD in my first year of Level 3.
5. Extra curriculars? Volunteering at an animal wildlife park, independent research, I'm course rep pretty much every year at my college but the course rep system is really rubbish here. Also I've been in contact with various people in the zoo industry to learn more about that kind of work.

Hi, I’m also applying for vet med this year I went to the Bristol open day before summer and I loved it! It was my favourite uni after cambridge. The city was really nice and I liked that you get to live there for the first 3 years before moving out to the Langford campus (where the facilities looked great too) . Good luck with your application!
