    A few random colleges want maths.
    Well, ****. My entire trolling philosophy of "maths for medicine??" has been shattered.

    No medical schools want it! Just one Cambridge college.

    Haha. That single college makes me feel bad for trolling people who say "do maths for medicine!" Damn it.

    But looking at OP's A Level choices, he might want to do either Physics or Maths as I think a fair few medical schools require three sciences to AS Level.

    No you dont need to do maths or physics for medicine, and as for manchester they just love the UKCAT. Also i did double award science and that was enough.

    Also cambridge doesnt always need three science/math subjects, i know quite a few people who got interviews there and they only did bio and chem and also surprisingly they had v low GCSEs.

    Also i dont think maths at a-level helps at all for chemisty, i know people who did further maths etc etc and applying to oxbridge for maths and other things and i still did better than them in chemistry and i only got a B in GCSE maths.

    A lot of medical schools give more points to people who do more varied A-levels now and not just science and maths, i think UCL is one.

    Here is this advice as well.

    Don't pick your A Levels based on what/where you want to do/go after them. Study what you want to. If you do not meet the requirements of the course, then it is probably the wrong course for you.

    You seem very young to be thinking about universities (I didn't even decide on medicine until earlier this year, let alone which institution) and a lot can change in between now and applying. Don't make your A Level choices based on where you think you want to study medicine, base them on which subjects you want to study to a further level.

    LOL @ how this thread was about whether OP needs physics for Manchester and then suddenly changed to whether you need Maths for medicine or not.

    Thanks for your help people. I do enjoy Biology and Chemistry, and with psychology and sociology, I chose them as I always wanted to learn about human behaviour etc..
