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

Have you done double science GCSE?

A level math is fairly easy.

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...

Tagging Reality Check for their opinion.
