yesss!! im aiming for vet med too. you should defo start with your chemistry as numerous topics take a long time to understand. there are youtube videos on every topic imaginable to aid with your revision. chem was also my weakest link in jc so study over the summer

dont because its not an easy subject at all and theres no way you can explain it to yourself especially if it wasnt your strong suit in jc, im in sixth year and going for veterinary and still find chemistry hard with my exam next week so just wait til youve a teacher in fifth year and keep on top of the work and youll be fine

ive taught myself chem over the past year and doing the exam in a week. its easy as long as you put in at least 3 hours of work from the very start. organic chem might need a bit of extra work however.

@meadhbh64 Also going for veterinary and also in 6th year, are you confident with the 570+ points ?

Would you be able to get enough points for vet with a H5 in chem? If you want to do vet I would definitely expect chem in your top 6 subjects and for the points all of your top 6 should really be H3 or above. If you start actually studying now I have no doubt you would be able to get at least a H2 but dont fool yourself by pretending to study. I recommend watching "Marty Lobdell - Study Less Study Smart" on youtube for great study techniques.

honestly jc chemistry and lc chemistry are vastly different. but yeah its a good idea to try and grasp the concepts before doing them, watch youtube videos and practise exam questions

I agree with Nathan If you have doubts about reaching the points I would look into studying vet med in Poland or Hungary as their entrance are based off an entrance exam which is pretty difficult considering its stuff not from the LC course there's a bio and chem exam. Vet med is one of the most difficult courses to get a place if you have serious doubts about your ability to obtain straight H2's then I would consider a backup.

Defo study using revise wise and even youtube vidoes!! its not a hard subject to pass in and even getting a H5. you have the time to study. if you do end up finding it hard, go and get grinds during the end of 5th year and through 6th year!
