    how fun does AERONAUTICAL ENGINEERING sound? awesome huh? that's (also) maths for ya i think.
    i do further maths and am totally regretting not taking physics as well as economics because i hated it at gcse level (was SO boring). but these days i'm finding i enjoy mechanics and am interested in what physics'd be like at a level. now all i'm really stuck with is economics/maths and no engineering courses to study at uni :'(
    Have you looked into foundation years? And I think I've seen engineering courses that don't require physics...

    Can I add that I'm Scottish and got AAAAA in my highers, in maths, physics, chemistry, human biology and english. Human bio was the only bio offered at my school :mad:

    Currently taking AH's in Chem, Maths and Physics.

    I know doing Scottish exams shakes things up a bit, can you help me now you know this please?
    Oh right - you'd have to contact universities directly/look on ucas. It might be that they want the same subjects at AH as they do at A-level and the subjects they want at AS at Higher level, but I don't know, you'll have to check. I'm not going to go and look it all up for you!

    Also before you even think about changing to vet med, go and do some work experience to work out if it's what you want to do!

    I really don't know, to be honest I haven't found one yet. Is it possible to do a postgrad in Vet Med?
    You'd have to do the undergraduate course, there aren't specific courses like there are for graduate medicine.

    Only the courses I listed in this thread will qualify you to be a vet - some unis offer other, normal 3year BSc courses in veterinary science or veterinary biology and things, but these are just like a zoology degree and you can't go into a career as a vet with just those degrees.

    What about........ medicine
