A blog designed to help budding vet students get into university.
I would like to thank you for your continued following of my blog. I still can’t believe there’s so many of you here and it keeps me going through busy days! I am particularly these days as I’m on rotations. It also appear E is lambing if you hadn’t guessed.
But keep asking us questions and we’ll try our best to answer :) and keep trying to find interesting things to whet your appetite for veterinary medicine.
W :)P.S: sorry for the lambing picture spam! Let us know if you have accepted any offers for vet school! E xxx
You hve to do pretty damned well in the other areas of the application to get an offer of AAB, like insanely good interview and work experience. it is possible, however it’s incredibly difficult.I had two offers for AAA and was accepted with AAB, B in chemistry. It is possible, but rare. Also it’s worth taking a gap year to work on the B :) E xx
Our exams are after holidays, I didn’t do any PCEMS at Christmas but also didn’t do any revision cos I’m shit. Exams in May are three weeks after Easter holidays this year and I’m doing two weeks lambing and should hopefully be ok!
Woo! RVC!! Luckily we have a RVC and Liverpool admin to battle it out. You’ve witnessed the RVC and the first stage of the course and the facilities in your first year here so no need to go on about those. the major pros for me is that the gateway course puts you at a major advantage for the RVC as it’s more tailored to our course. Also you know the place, have friends here and know your way around. The not as much AHEMS definitely seemed to cheer up my gateway friends too.
There’s a slim chance I may know you!! you will probably have heard my ULU speech at interviews last year. Anyway enough droning from me. E will hopefully be along to provide Liverpool creds.
Yooooo So Liverpool has 5 exams twice a year but January’s don’t count for anything in years 1-3. 12 weeks EMS isn’t a lot when you think about the amount of holiday you have! We are a really practical course, the campus is lovely, the staff are great. If you have any specific questions send another message and I can answer in greater detail in the morning when I’m more awake :))) E xxx
Hi there! The workload for veterinary medicine is intense and yes a lot of people are overwhelmed.
They key to getting on top of it is finding a work method that works for you. trawling through lectures writing wonderfully neat notes is not always the way to go and it doesn’t necessarily help. I hate doing this and it takes any interest away. I prefer a whiteboard and just mind vomiting onto it in a method that suits my head. maybe applying some cases to it to make it more interesting.
People have doubts about the course all the time, and at first the massive mountain ahead of you is daunting. But if you’re at a good university there are people who can help you find a way to improve your learning, make it interesting for you and help you get through vet school to the best job in the world.
I’ve not got much motivation for work, and I’m still chugging along, it gets better. Which university are you at? Just out of interest, we may be able to direct help.
