    So I took the AS subjects on the new spec for biology, chemistry, Spanish and maths and u didn't recieve the grades I needed in order to get the predicted A grades I needed on my application for uni. Then September 2016 I had an offer to work at a global pharmaceutical company as an apprentice for 2 years. However, I really want to go into veterinary medicine and as I turn 18 in June it means I will need to retake my A levels (bio chem and physic instead) this September. In the time leading up to then I will continue to work at the company and I will also volunteer many places to gain veterinary experience and create a portfolio for it. Not to mention learn the content to my subjects for I'll be ready for the start of it.
    However, the two unis I have my heart set on are Cambridge and Surrey and even though it says they take resits I'm scared that I still will not get accepted. What are my chances and if there are any other alternative routes please let me know!😁

    I believe Surrey do consider resits and students that have applied once before but did not get an interview. They dont accept reapplications from students that were interveiwed but were rejected after interview

    Ah that's good, I didn't apply to a uni last year so at least I know I have a chance at Surrey. Thank you!
