Entry requirements for Veterinary Medicine. What subjects do I need at A-Level?

I'm looking at going down the route of studying Veterinary Medicine. I'm at the stage now of choosing my A levels and would just like to know which A levels are best to take?
I am definitely choosing Chemistry and Biology but I am hesitant with taking Maths or Physics because I'm not so sure I'll do well in these subjects. I'm predicted Bs/As at GCSE level. Also, I am interested in taking Environmental Science at A level, would this be a suitable choice or not? I have a lot of work experience already, but I just don't want to end up choosing the wrong A levels.

Check our Veterinary Medicine league table as a guide to quality of university:

There seems to be quite a bit of flexibility as long as you can offer Chemistry and Biology at A level. But each university has its own requirements. Check each university's entry requirement for Veterinary Medicine. Make sure when you apply through UCAS that you meet the entry requirements of those institutions you are applying to. It seems obvious but you don't want to waste a UCAS choice.
