I'm a 25 year old former A Level student who's been out of education and in work for some time. I want to enter vet degree however I have a levels in humanities that I failed first time around. As i understand the veterinary standard for entry doesn't usually allow resits yet as I am sitting Biology, chemistry and physics + another for the first time, would they allow this as a first sitting - or would it be classed as a resit if I was to apply with those a levels?

As far as I know 'resit' only applies when you're retaking exams in the same subject, which you are not doing.
It's not true that they usually don't allow resits, although there are often conditions regarding resitting (i.e. getting certain grades the first or second time around).
If you properly failed (i.e. got Us), then I think that you don't have to declare your grade on UCAS anyway. I'd advise you to contact admissions tutors directly regarding your circumstances, but I think you will probably be okay.
Best of luck!
