I want to do veterinary medicine.So I'm planning on resitting my Highers (AS level equivalent) next year. This would be my first resit. I plan on getting all As and A1s (A* equivalent). I know I am more than capable as I got straight As and A*s in GCSE (yes my school in Scotland did GCSEs).
However this year I just feel like a mixture of illness and not putting in enough effort means I couldn't get the grades I wanted this year.
However if worse comes to worse and I get ill again next year for my exam, or something just happens and everything goes disastrously on the exam and I end up getting a lower grade again, what would that mean in terms of resitting a second time? and getting into vet school? Is that possible? My illness cannot gain me extra marks, I already asked! But it is bad enough to affect my grade AND I didn't put in nearly enough effort either.
I will obviously work my hardest as I have my heart set on being a vet, however as some Scottish students will know, the maths exam in 2015 and the English exam in 2016 was ridiculously hard! Which does mean lower grade boundaries, however I'm still worried just if my brain decides not to function on the day.
I am probably being paranoid, but vet med is incredibly important to me. I want to do nothing else, therefore I will resit and try a great deal harder this year, but would any vet schools even consider 2nd resits (3rd attempt).
If I had to take a third attempt you're probably thinking I'm not going to make it through vet school anyway, however I know I am capable of getting As there will just be a lot more pressure on me next year to get straight As, that's why I'm so nervous about it.
