    the average is 50% so you'd want above that, but it's not going to be a major factor in their decision since it's the first year they're using it for vets

    not major but i've seen it be the reason some people have gotten rejected
    they say you can't really prepare for it, so just do the specimen and the 2016 paper and you should be fine

    i'm not gonna decide until i see the paper because i'm equally bad at bio and chem :sad: so it'll just depend on which questions i think i can actually attempt

    though it'll prob use up a lot of time trying to decide :/

    yh that's what I'm worried about, time, also I like Chemistry but there's too much to learn now so I think I'll just do both physics and maths since I've done a few pat papers at school

    chem is mostly calculations (in section 2 anyway) so you don't have to learn much!!
    I don't do physics so that's kinda ruled out for me
