    So i finished my first year of A levels, and i want to do veterinary medicine but i didnt realise how competitive it was and i know i wont get decent grades plus i have minimal work experience, and i really want to just resit AS chem bio maths in a different college to make sure that id get the best predicted grades possible, but ive heard that for courses such as Veterinary Medicine, dont accept AS/A-level retakes? If so im absolutely lost in what im even doing anymore.

    Historically it's never been a problem. I know several people doing vetmed now that took a third year of college to get the grades they needed. You need to check with universities individually, as some may have conditions for retaking such as getting a minimum grade on the first attempt, but as far as I know that's for A2 resits anyway. Double check in case it's changed since the new A level system has come in, but I'm sure you'll be fine
