    For veterinary science, you definately need chemistry, so that should be one of your options. Biology is good, and maths would give you an advantage.

    There's no problem with either psychology or politics as a 4th a level, but vet courses are very competitive and you could get rejected straight out without chemistry

    You need chemistry. Having 1 out of Bio/physics/Maths is okay, but 2 would be ideal and make your application stronger, which is important given how competetive the course is.

    Thanks so much guys, i thought about this a lot and decided that the sciences are my weakness. Therefore i'm going to get rid of that dream.

    With practice, anything can become a strength! But you do need to be studying the right course to be considered!

    But, where there is a will, there is a way! You could also drop a 4th AS Level and pick up chemistry, or even pick it up next year and apply to uni a year later.

    Good luck
