    I have at GCSE:
    A*- Lit B - Lang B - speaking
    5 (C-B) - Maths (as i was made to do foundation by *****y school)
    B - Science (6 marks of A)
    B - Additional science
    B - History
    B - Creative Imedia
    B - ECDL (computung licence)
    D - Art E - French

    I underachieved at GCSE because of unaviodable circumstance at home. I'm at college atm doing *****y enginering. I want to do vet medacine.

    I have two choices. Join now (2 mouths late) at sixth form and hope I can catch up.

    Or complete the 1 year (GCSE equivalent course in enginering) and also retake Maths (and try to get B/A) and science (aiming for A/A*). Then rejoin sixth form with better grades. Hence meaning I can do futher maths.

    If I join sixth form now I won't be allowed to do futher maths (or so I've been told) but rather AS maths (worth half a A level)

    So I could only do either:
    Biology, chemistry, physics
    Biology, chemistry, AS maths.

    So if I got
    A - Biology, B - Chemistry and a A in AS maths would that be entry requirment to vetenary university or is AS maths not enough.

    If not what would I need in biology, chemistry and physics to get in vet university. Would ABB in three sciences be alright or is AAB / AAA needed.

    If anyone has anyexpirence with vet medicine or these A levels, please please please help.
