Q. Hi I am doing a research report on Vets. I was wondering on how you became a vet. What you did when you got into college and High school.
A. In the UK we study most subjects up to Gcse (age 16) then we go onto A levels. The best subjects to choose to get into vet school here are maths, chemistry and biology. You have to get top grades in them to be given a chance of getting into vet school. We then go onto a university that offers veterinary medicine which was only 6 in the whole of the UK when I did it. Work experience also helps with getting a place at the university. I did lots of work in my local vet practice and also 2 weeks at London zoo.
