Entry requirements for Veterinary Medicine You may enter up to four veterinary medicine/science courses in your UCAS application. Your remaining choice can be used for an alternative course without prejudice to your commitment to veterinary medicine. ‘Science/mathematics subjects’ refers to Biology/Human Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics. It does not include Psychology. GCSEs • Grade C or above in GCSE (or equivalent) Double Award Science and Mathematics. • Two single awards in GCSE Biology and Physics may be substituted for Double Award Science. AS and A Levels • AS or A Level passes in Chemistry and two of Biology/Human Biology, Physics, Mathematics. At least one pass must be at A Level. • Most applicants have at least three science/mathematics A Levels and some Colleges require this and/or particular subjects. See College websites for details. Please note that in the past three admissions rounds, 95 per cent of applicants for Veterinary Medicine offered three or more science/mathematics A Levels and, of these, 25 per cent were successful in obtaining a place. Of the five per cent of applicants who offered only two science/mathematics A Levels, none were successful in gaining a place.
