    First off, I'm 13 and am going to be choosing my GCSE subjects next month. I have always loved animals and want to be a vet, and I'm not sure if I should take this course or not.

    I'm really confused about this because my teachers all say I need to take it to be a vet, and I'm fine with most of the course but I don't enjoy MFL that much (I am learning Spanish), and I really dislike History AND Geography.

    I really don't absorb any of the info I'm given in History, and what info I do get in class, stays in class when I leave. It's terrible, I know, but because of this I definitely don't want to take History. With Geography, I understand it, but I find it really boring-maybe it's just the way I'm taught, I'm not sure, but I don't want to take it.

    However, if it means I can become a vet, then I guess I'll take it. But I really want to avoid it if possible.

    What do you think??Is it really worth it??
