Do you know any vets ? Are they super human ? Nope they are just people like you, some are smart, some not so much. They all put alot of work into getting where they are, but anything one person can do, another can do. If they did it no reason you can't. Don't worry about the whole process, worry about this semester. You will have time to worry about next semester and next year when they get here.

Thankyou, that gives me a little more confidence, everybody around me is so set on saying its the hardest course out, only the extra smart people make it through, all the negative stuff.

It IS a very hard course, don't be mistaken - but it is hard in terms of workload and hours you have to put in to do well. You don't have to be ridiculously smart, although there will be people like that on the course, and you will hate them with every fibre of your being while you slog away and they breeze through (it's absolutely gutting!), but it is perfectly possible to make it through.

The high dropout rate is nothing to do with people not being smart enough - it's because a lot of people who get onto the course are used to breezing through school, and then realise they can't cope with the long hours of hard work. It IS completely possible to make it through, as long as you are prepared to work - and they help you when you're there! They don;t want to see you drop out, so if ever you need help speak to your tutors, they will do everything they can to help you.

Most of all enjoy it when you get there, don't stress too much. They wouldn't have let you in if they didn;t think you were capable, so relax and enjoy it!!

I do know it's a hard course, the tutors showed us a typical schedule for vet students and I think I kicked my jaw off the floor lol and it's taking care of lives, so I know it's not going to be easy, I'm just sick of constantly hearing only the negative side, it drives me crazy.

The 75/200 isn't the dropout rate here though, it's the amount of people they let through to the next semester, hence my moments.

I do hope I get help when I need it, my biggest problem is asking for help when I do need it, but I'm getting better with that now after realising that if I don't have the courage to ask for help, how am I going to get where I want to go? I even had the guts to drive to someones house last night and tell them they're cows were on the road... Something I would normally tell dad when I get home and get him to ring them. So I'm getting there in terms of going up to people.

I definitely will be enjoying it when I get there I'm not going to work my butt off to go into something I hate, that's just not me
