    For the last couple of years one of my top picks of uni courses was veterinary medicine. Unfortunately I failed (and dropped) chemistry at AS level and so thought I'd have to close the door on veterinary. However, I was on the university of Edinburgh's website and they offer a postgraduate entry veterinary medicine course! The entry requirements are "A 2:1 honours degree in a biological or animal science subject. Subjects studied and gained to a high standard include Biology/Zoology, Physics, Biochemistry, Organic and Inorganic Chemistry and Mathematics/Statistics. Genetics, Microbiology and Cellular Biology are also strongly recommended." Does this mean if I went to uni and did zoology or marine biology and achieved a 2:1, I could apply for this course or would I still need A level chemistry?

    My predicted grades for my other subjects are Biology A, Geography A and English Lit B. Thanks for your help!

    As far as I'm aware you just need the 2:1 in the degree to apply, but you must get a 2:1 and not only that but you have to get high grades in each module across the board to be considered.
    When applying as a graduate you also have to consider funding a second degree. Student finance will not pay tuition fees for a second degree, therefore you would have to fund the £9000 a year yourself.

    I didn't realise they can increase fees for certain courses! Any idea how much tuition fees alone are for veterinary med? I'm attending the open day in 2 weeks so I should be able to find out more then. Thanks
