    My intentions are to study Medicine in university, I have chose Chemistry, Biology and Maths so far for A Level but I am unsure what to choose as my 4th.
    I am stuck between English Literature or Physics - my Chemistry teacher said Physics but my English teacher said go for English as it shows you can do more than just Science - please can I have your advice!

    Your English teacher is actually right in a way. Some medical schools like UCL put a slight preference on applicants who offer a contrasting A level. Doing Physics will give you absolutely no advantage. Which ever you decide to pick would be absolutely fine though so pick which ever you're enjoy and are more likely to do well in.

    It will make no difference. Choose the subject that you prefer.
