Hi, sorry I know that there are a lot of these threads at the moment
I'm considering a career in veterinary medicine.
For A-Level I want to do
Maths
Further Maths
Chemistry
Biology
Physics As

I am predicted A*s in all my GCSEs
( At the Sixth Form I am applying to, they do an accelerated Maths programme where you do the whole of Maths A-Level in year 12 and then the whole of Further Maths A-Level in year 13)

I do have lots of extra curriculars (Done Silver DOFe, doing Gold Practise Expedition next summer, volunteer at local Brownies, I play the Violin at Youth Orchestra, etc.) but would doing only sciences and maths be okay at A-Level for veterinary medicine or a science related subject or would it not show that I am well-rounded enough?
Thanks in advance

Most people only have sciences when applying for med/vet med. Your extra curriculars show how well rounded you are anyway. The admissions people are looking for scientific skills and relevant work experience, so you'll be fine.

Yes, but you should try and get vet related work experience. Ask local pet shops etc.
