    do just 2 sciences and maths then, and choose a totally different subject as a AS.

    Are you absolutely sure that medicine is the right career path for you? Surely someone interested in medicine would find enjoyment in studying the sciences?

    i know it was intermediate - it does not matter - unless you school/college is refusing to take you.

    I love science - just, not so much physics. I am certain medicine is for me.

    How did you do in a level maths, then?

    Umm the requirments are B at higher tier, maybe I could convince them?

    I got a A in maths, and a A at GCSE.

    They may let you do GCSE higher maths and Intermediate, or do a catch up course or something. Is this a different college, ie not your school? Maybe explain there wasn't space in the higher class so you had to do intermediate...sob stories rock.

    At the end of the day redoing higher GCSE will be the similar content to what you need to know for A-level but at a lower level so doing both at the same time, shouldn't be a burden.

    your tutors will help you. Why not take AS maths in your A2 year then - maths really does help with the sciences. you can do 3 other subjects this year, 3 sciences if you like, and higher GCSE maths, so your full prepared for the AS maths.

    You really don't need Maths or Physics to do medicine at the vast majority of medical schools. Pick 2 other subjects that you enjoy, but above all, are most likely to get good grades in. No need to put yourself through maths/physics if you are not going to do well out of it.

    you should do chemistry and biology because they are highly reccomended. i would also suggest maths because a few universities suggest a third science or maths subject so tht will keep your uni choices wide open. for a 4th AS, you can pick anything you like...so you could have ur RS for that if u want.

    im taking chem, bio, phys, maths

    You shouldn't be put off other subjects because of what happen at GCSE or before - A-level is totally different, if you need help, ask your tutor for help in how to write essays etc.
