    If you can't deal with A-levels for 2 years, then becoming a vet might be a struggle. I would stick it out for the last year of A-levels.

    I wouldnt recommend dropping out of A levels, I do believe that on competitive courses such as medicine and vet medicine this very often leads to rejections as you appear as someone who gives up.

    It's not to say you are giving up but how the universities perceive you swapping from A levels to a more hands on course. I do believe that your college course probably wont be recognised by universities for vet medicine however I'm not 100% sure.

    Well I looked into it and if I do the level 3 animal management and get good marks I can then do a bioveterinary science degree and then a bvetmed degree and then I'm a qualified vet...but want to know if anyone has done it this way.

    I don't actually study vet med, but I know u can do something very similar to what you just said for medicine. I'd probably ring universities and see what they recommend.
