    I'm currently taking Biology, Chemistry, History and Psychology for my A-levels. Its been 2 weeks so far and i'm already struggling with Chemistry :/ So i did some research on some universities that offer the course on BioMed and loads of them didn't need Chemistry. Thing is, the universities i was planning on applying to (Bristol, Birmingham + the London ones) all need Chemistry, but i also found out that 3 other Russell Group uni's don't need chemistry! (Queen Mary's, Warwick & Newcastle).
    Do you think i should drop Chemistry since a load of other uni's don't need it, even though it closes some doors for other Universities?

    Btw, do you know if Cardiff will accept Psychology as a 'second science' for BioMed? (i know Chemistry is preferred).-
