Just wondering if anybody knows the answer
I got Cs in all my sciences (I did triple science) for GCSE so I couldn't study biology at my college (required Bs).
However, I want to be a veterinary surgeon.
I was just wondering if I studied veterinary nursing (after completing a foundation course that I can apply for) would I then be able to gather some experience and then apply to study to be a veterinary surgeon despite not having the a level/gcse grades?

Hi there, apologies for the late response.
What you're planning is certainly a possibility, yes. The Royal Veterinary College, for example, will allow you onto the four year accelerated veterinary medicine course with Cs at GCSE if you are a veterinary nursing graduate. They don't require A-Levels in this instance, but, they do warn that many people on the course will have As and Bs at A-Level in sciences, and that knowledge from these qualifications may be required.
Other vet schools accept graduates, but are more fussy about A-Levels (as in, requiring them even if you apply as a graduate). The veterinary schools in the UK are the RVC, Edinburgh, Liverpool, Bristol, Nottingham, Glasgow, Cambridge and Surrey, so I would advise you to do your own research into them
Hope that helped!
