Congratulations on being chosen to supervise anatomy to some of our vet students. They are a bright, motivated bunch and I am sure you will enjoy the experience. The second year of the Cambridge vet course can be difficult for students. By general agreement it is the hardest of the six years of the course – mainly because of the sheer volume of material. CVB is not as conceptually complex as some other IB courses, and indeed it often draws of the same skills as IA VAP. However, come exam-time students can forget the size of the course, and not leave long enough to revise it – warn them against this!

Information for supervisors about this course including tips about supervising generally and about teaching on this particular course is now on our new Moodle site for supervisors. Please ask to enrol you on this.
