    I am currently studying biology, chemistry, physics and classical civilisation a-levels. I want to drop one of either physics or classical civilisation but I am not sure if not having all 3 sciences/maths will put me at a disadvantage when applying to study veterinary medicine at university?

    There are a couple of A levels that some universities don't like but neither classical civilisation or physics are one of them so do the one like most or think you will do best in and drop the other!

    I took Biology Chemistry and Religious Studies and received an offer from the rvc last year. I’d count RS similar to classical civilisation! 😊

    As others have said, the the idea that taking three/four sciences will make you a better applicant is a common misconception (and one I fell for, and maths was the death of me :lol: ). I know people who have got into vet school with sociology, psychology, history, geography, English literature and PE as their respective third subjects, another science confers no advantage other than at Cambridge.
