    How come you haven't done GCSE maths, or chemistry for that matter...? Are you a mature student?

    Have you done double science GCSE?

    Well which did you prefer in the American system...? The system matters not... your ability/interest in the subject is what is important.

    Why do you "have to choose between a level math and a level chemistry"? Why do you have to do them at all?

    What are your other subjects and your intention after school; e.g. going to a university to study what?

    well basically my dilemma is that i want to do something that needs either maths or chemistry i would want to study zoology or be a vet something in that field.. however i did maths all my throughout my time in america and i did good but i think the academic level is easier then a level and i haven't done chemistry in america since i was doing biology so would it be to hard to do chemistry?Did i miss too much? I'm not very bright at maths but i did improve in america.

    I would do maths as the jump from GCSE chemistry to a-level chemistry is greater in my opinion Maths sort of eases you in with C1 (first module)

    Again, what are your other A-levels?

    Look at zoology course requirements.
    Usually Biology plus another science. e.g. https://www.southampton.ac.uk/biosci...______________

    Then look at veterinary course requirements.
    Bristol requires Chemistry plus another "lab-based" science (i.e. not maths).
    http://www.bristol.ac.uk/study/under...inary-science/

    Other universities may have different requirements - you need to do the research.

    But yes I'd be concerned about you trying to do A-level Chemistry with zero prior chemistry experience. Maths would seem to be a better bet, but may close the vetmed door for you. And not being "bright" at maths is a concern also...
