Edinburgh Vet Med reserve list 2024

I was just wondering if anyone else had been put on the edinburgh reserve list? Or if anyone knew anything about it like how many others are put on it?

I was put on it as well, (RUK) I emailed them to ask them about the reserve list and they said:
“In regards to your question about the reserve list only a select number of candidates are placed on the reserve list following interview. The reserve list is for candidates who performed well at interview but who unfortunately, due to very high competition for our Veterinary Medicine programme, were slightly less competitive than other applicants. For information, it’s also important to highlight that the reserve list isn't ranked and does change considerably over the next few months. Many applicants become ineligible to remain on the list if they accept a place at another vet school. Additionally, factors such as the acceptance rate of candidates we've offered places to, as well as exam results in August and candidates meeting offer conditions, heavily impact the availability of places. Rest assured, we'll keep you informed as soon as possible regarding any updates.”
Sorry it’s a bit long winded but that pretty much sums it up - I personally am waiting on Liverpool to tell me if my offer is deferred so I’ll wait until just before 6th June to accept my offers just in case one comes through from Edinburgh,
Sorry - hope that helps

Haha yeah, I kinda have mixed feelings about taking a gap year but I think it does give you more confidence going to uni. I think if you don’t firm any others on ucas you’ll have a bigger chance of getting an offer from Edinburgh at least cos a lot have people will have pulled out or firmed others hopefully x

I know my friend who went into dentistry said last year there was a reserve list for a uni in england and I think he said 32 of the people on it got given offers after results came out. Just wish there were more spaces for us lol
