    I would love to do veterinary medicine, when im older however i have to do chemistry and biology a level which i became at peace with and was certain i could get through it. However looking at Universities most of them want either a maths or physics a level also. I had my heart set on doing psychology as im interested in that so and based on experience i excel at things i enjoy. I dont do well in maths so im going to have to take Physics however the added stress of 3 sciences is hard to bear.

    So i may either choose to do all 4 subjects but that leaves the thought of what to drop after one year. Or do i save myself the stress by leaving physics out. I know chemistry is the hardest but i had my heart set on biology,chemistry and psychology. Now i may have to drop psychology after 1 year.

    Sorry this was long but im only 15 and i feel so stressed my GCSEs are less than 4 months away and the deadline for my sixth form application is in 2 days.

    So do i spare myself the stress and kiss my dream job goodbye or do i choose to grit my teeth and get through it by dropping what was (probably) my favourite class ,psychology, in the 2nd year.

    I need actual advice not some teachers talking to me about what is best on a uni application and not giving a damn about my stress levels. My dad wants me to do buisiness,economics, maths and politics at A level (havent broken the news to him yet that i would rather sit in a hole and wait to die) and my mum doesnt believe i can deal with the stress. So parental advice is out of the question.

    Please talk to me, im freaking out.

    Most vet med school so only ask for biology and chemistry, where did you look? You're likely to perform poorly at physics if you're bad at maths as the A Level is just applied maths
