    Ok, so I'm in the first year of college but have no plan of what I am going to do after I leave college!
    So far I have thought of being a Vet... that is it.. now I'm worried I'm not good enough and that I wont be able to do it. I have some work experience lined up and I will be doing lambing this year.
    I take biology chemistry maths and psychology. I don't really want to go down the maths degree route. Biology is absolutely my favourite subject and has been since secondary.
    I don't really know where to start with looking up courses either
    Where should I start? What other courses could I do with my subjects at the minute?

    You can honestly do a lot of things, even Politics or even Computer Science. Go to different universities website and browse through their course list, look at the course content and note the name of the course down. Later on start researching more about those courses so you could narrow it down

    If you really do love Biology that much, you could start by going to UCAS extra and typing in 'Biology' on the course search. What would be easier is to find which field within Biology interests you the most.

    The thing to bear in mind with Vet Med is that it's a five year course, a pretty massive commitment! The entry process is extremely rigorous: you need to meet not only the grades but the work experience requirements, ideally have some extracurriculars and be able to express yourself well in order to convey your enthusiasm. Another thing is that most of the vet schools have their own slightly different requirements ranging from different grades to additional tests and questionnaires
