    Just curious - saw lots of posts about it, wanting to know opinions - some people saying biology seems like it'd cover the modules needed for vet med but zoology etc more related to the degree - any views?

    There is no 'best option' to prepare you for vetmed, since the vetmed course is massively different. I did bio veterinary science, my friend did biology.
    It's best to choose a degree which is definitely accepted by all of the universities, but between all of them, the modules are very basic compared to what is taught in veterinary science degrees

    where abouts are you studying graduate level vet med? some of them I've looked at are looking for the same grades as school leavers plus the first degree but wasn't sure if everywhere was like that?

    I emailed the unis so many times now, I know the graduate requirements all by heart :P

    RVC: 2:1 (No specific A-level requirements)
    Nottingham: 2:1 + BB in A-level Chemistry and Biology
    Liverpool: 2:1 + either BB or CC in A-level Chemistry and Biology depending on your degree.
    Bristol: 2:1 + BBB in Chemistry, Biology and one other subject

    Cambridge definitely requires A-levels alongside your degree although I'm not sure what grades you would need.
    Edinburgh doesn't require A-levels for their accelerated course but they can be picky when it comes to your degree modules. If you don't have what they want they might only consider you for their 5 year course.
    And the last time I emailed Glasgow they said they don't have any specific requirements other than a 2:1 in your degree, but it was quite a while ago so it might be worth dropping them an email and asking if that's still the case.

    As for Surrey, I'm not sure if they require A-levels, but they do take a close look at your degree modules to make sure your cover enough Chemistry and Biology topics.

    I'm at Liverpool. As Nessie has said above me those are what they require. Surrey also look at gcse grades too. Edinburgh very picky about what you get in individual modules as well grade wise, they go through your degree transcript thoroughly
