    I am thinking of taking use of maths for a level because I'm not too sure I'll be strong enough to do pure maths. I was just wondering whether use of maths would still be regarded at university as I would like to go onto veterinary?!
    At the moment I have got an A and B in my two previous exams and you need at least an A to do maths at the sixth form I'm looking into.
    Any comments on use of maths would be appreciated. Thank you

    Use of maths isn't very well regarded at all. Veterinary science is a very competitive degree to get onto, so I think you should do Maths. As long as you work hard at it, you should be fine.

    I wouldn't bother with Use of Maths. I think if you can pull your grade up to an A at GCSE, which shouldn't be too hard, you should go for normal Maths. Or not at all if you really don't think you're strong enough at it, it's not necessary I believe.
