    Hi, I have just chosen my A-level courses but just wondering if they are the right subjects for veterinary science/medicine. The subjects I have chosen are chemistry, biology and psychology, I am really keen to learn about these subjects but I don't want it to effect me later on when I want to apply for university. I would rather not have to take maths or physics, I just want advise on whether these are the right subjects to take. Thank you.

    Chem and Biology are they key ones. Maths or Physics keeps all options open., so you will have to check the vet schools you are interested in to make sure.

    Hi,

    If you are looking to train to become a vet, it’s very likely you will need to have a Biology qualification at A-Level. It’s also likely you will need to have one or two subjects from Chemistry, Physics or Mathematics.

    It looks as if the subjects you’ve pick will certainly allow you to keep this career idea open but I would recommend having a look at the following websites for more information:

    I hope this helps!
