hi, I am in a RUT! I would love to vet medicine at Nottingham however, my GCSEs aren't good enough and I'm worried at how competitive it is! is it possible to do a degree in animal science and then go on to study vet medicine?

It is a possibility, but I think the issue with that is that you'd have to apply as a graduate to go onto Veterinary Medicine (there is no way to transfer onto the course), which I've heard is more competitive than applying as an undergraduate. You also wouldn't get any student finance for your second degree, so you'd have to fund it yourself which would be really expensive.

My GCSE's were 4A's 4B's and an E and I got in

Having the GCSE requirements gives you a competitive edge but being close to them doesn't guarantee you won't get an offer - I got 3 interviews and 3 offers.

Yes you could do animal science, biovet or similar first and do veterinary postgrad - but actually the competition for post-grad courses (4 years) seems higher. And you could go for the standard 5 year program post-grad but that is a lot of money to be paying upfront without student finance.
