Vet uni a levels

So I took Biology, Chemistry and French. I only took 2 science a levels and I know most other applicants will take 3. Does this mean I have severely reduced my chances of getting into Veterinary Universities?

For A Levels subjects, you only need to meet the entry requirements for the course,
E.g Nottingham https://www.nottingham.ac.uk/ugstudy/course/Veterinary-Medicine-and-Surgery-BVM+BVS+with+BVMedSci#requirements
State AAB, A’s in biology and chemistry. The B can be anything except citizenship studies, critical thinking, general studies and global perspectives.

Not at all!!!! It only slightly limits you for Cambridge but all the others are fine. I got into my schools taking Bio, Chem and German :smile:

They can apply to Cambridge

‘To apply to any of our Colleges for Veterinary Medicine, you will need A levels/IB Higher Levels (or the equivalent) in:

At least one of Biology, Mathematics, or Physics. Most applicants for Veterinary Medicine at Cambridge have at least three science/mathematics A levels and some Colleges require this and/or particular subjects.

Yeah of course they can apply! I said 'slightly' because for the NSAA which is the admissions test there is required maths section which is quite difficult if you're not doing maths A-level but with enough practice it's ok. Also because they look for a super STEM background due to the nature of their intercalated degree, with years 1-3 being very science/maths heavy and almost being a science degree.

I see, thanks for clarifying.
