    I've checked with websites and emailed several universities about further maths and there is plenty of unis that accept further maths and i'll only apply to them.
    I would advise doing more research to make sure those that accept FM also meet your other selection criteria - eg traditional teaching vs PBL, UKCAT vs BMAT, campus vs town etc - before you unnecessasarily narrow your options. Particularly bear in mind that 60% of applicants get no offers, and many of those reapply - as it is often not possible to reapply to the same unis, that means some people will need to find 8 med schools that would look at them.

    Generally I would say select subjects that give you the widest range of options possible. Also, it may be a long shot, but it's possible that something goes wrong with one of your other 3 subjects, and you may need to take your 4th AS to A2, which with FM would make a medicine application quite difficult. (This happened with my sister - messed up maths AS and finished up doing A2 spanish instead of maths - not a problem with her degree choice though)
