    Hi, I wonder if any one could give me some advice. I am currently finishing my first year of a Theology & Religion degree at Oxford University, which I have loved and intend to complete. That said, I am not sure this is an area that I want to spend the rest of my life studying. I love the intellectual rigour of the course, but am not keen on becoming a priest/doing a law conversion course/other normal roots after study. I studied five humanites subjects at a level and did well enough to get in for my course, but I have always loved science. I love animals and often thought of doing veterinary medicine in the years before choosing my GCSE's, but was told not to do separate sciences beause I was better at RE. I have realised I really want to at least take some other a levels once I graduate, maybe maths, biology and chemistry, but wonder whether a vet school would ever consider a mature student who has a slightly 'dodgy' history, i.e. not all science background? I would be really grateful if any mature vet students/admissions advisors etc would give me an honest opinion about whether this would be possible? Thanks

    Yes you'd be considered there's a guy in my year in his 40s. Retake your A levels, do your work experience and then see from there

    I think you could possibly be eligible for a preliminary year. Check each of the bet schools to see if they do one. I know at Nottingham there's a prelim year that's for people who haven't done science A levels. It's mainly aimed at school leavers but could be worth a go getting in touch with admissions
