I'm half way through my first years at a level, I picked Biology, PE and English lit. However I regret this choice as now I'd really like to pursue a career in veterinary science and become a vet, but it seems all the courses require chemistry at a level , I got a B at it in gcse but didn't think I needed it when I was picking my a levels, any one got any help to whether or not any courses offer veterinary without chem.

Moved to the vet med forum which you may want to check out. You will have to look through each unis websites.

I don't think Liverpool insist on chemistry but they do want biology and another academic science so that doesn't really help you.

You would therefore need to look at Nottingham who ask for AA with a maximum of only one out of chemistry and biology for their 6 year course (vet med with a preliminary year).

However, that only gives you one course you can apply for and so if you weren't successful at getting a place on that you might need to do chemistry after you have left school.

Thanks I've had a quick research on the Nottingham course, looks ideal but looks very competitive, might have to go for it though
