    I will have my Tutor interview on the 29th August. I will have to bring in my GCSE results, aswell as other things. But the problem is I cant decide between my A-levels. I want to take Economics, Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Physics but my College doesnt let me more than 4 A-levels.

    So I dont know which to chose especially since that I equally prefer a Master in Physics, to Master in Chemistry, a Medicine Degree, a Bachelors in Economics and a Master in Mathematics. I dont know which subject (Bio, Chem, Phy, Econ, Maths) to drop.

    Difficult decision. Looking at your plans, I think that Economics or Physics might be the best to drop.

    For a Medicine, Chemistry or Physics degree, they wouldn't care about Economics -- and Economics isn't actually required to study for an Economics degree either. Mathematics will be more important.

    Likewise, Physics wouldn't be required for a Chemistry degree (though useful, I think most places ask for Chemistry and one other science - you'd have Biology).

    I would look up the entry requirements for some of the unis you might consider.

    To have the option of studying all of those at Oxford (since they have a nice handy table I could look these up in ), you'd need chemistry, physics and maths which would leave you with not doing economics or not doing biology.

    True, but I think you would definitely be disadvantaged if you didn't have Biology if applying for a Medicine degree.

    Do you have an electronic version of this?

    It sounds handy.

    seaspray, Economics is not required for Economics but I dont want to disadvantage myself for not taking it at A-levels. If I dropped Physics how will it become possible for me to do Physics?

    Biology.

    Quite possibly, I don't know much about applying for medicine, but you wouldn't get anywhere at all without the requirements.

    Thanks for all the suggestions.

    I decide to drop Biology so I can put my strength towards Economics (with Economics and Math A-levels) or Physics, Chemistry (I will make a formal decision in the later stages of my A-levels)

    Yup, it's on their website: http://www.admissions.ox.ac.uk/courses/enreq.shtml
