2 as levels
and im getting another 3 (hopefully) at and a grade
To be honest I don't think they're anywhere near good enough to get you onto vet med. You're are expected to get them all at one sitting too.
I got 7 1's (bio, chem, physics, maths, english, geography, german), 5 A's (biology, chemistry, physics, maths and english) at higher and 3A's (chem, bio and maths) at advanced higher and that's the normal offering grades.
You need to phone up the university to ask them what you need and what else you could do.
As for work experience you are expected to do lambing, milking, loads of different vet centres, stable work, kennel work, abbitor if you can get it.
Are you truely sure it's what you want to do? If you are considering behaviour, I suspect not. It is NOT all about petting animals - in fact for the first two years you don't see a single live animals - it's all prepared specimens. It is basically pure biology and chemistry, with a little statisitics for good measure. And after that it's very little hands on - you get no time to play with them - just examine them - and chop them up once they're anesthetised.
And it's damn hard work - even with my grade I struggle with the amount of work involved - god know how those with a lower academic level would cope - I don't think they would to be honest.
By all means have a look into it, but I think you'd be much more successful following the behaviour route. IN the UK you don't have to be a qualified vet, athough being a vet nurse helps. I know edinburgh Uni runs a small animal and horse behaviour course.
