    it seems that people dont want to do physics? i have chosen BIOLOGY, CHEMISTRY, PHYSICS AND MATHS(6 UNITS).
    However i am not too sure about physics. Maybe you guys can advise me what i can do instead of physics. I want to study medicine.
    You could do nearly ANY other subject instead of physics because you already have the 3 sciences (chemistry and biology being the most wanted ones). I would recommend doing a 'hard' subject e.g. Language/humanity to make your application more competitive

    Good luck


    P.s. I also want to study medicine and am doing chemistry, biology, maths and german next year (and an EPQ)

    I am - I started working after January modules, and plan on keeping it through sixth form as I only work four hours a week.

    There was a sign up in the window (I work in a bakery/café), so I printed off an application form and gave it in. I had an interview and a few weeks later they offered me the job Before I got this job though, I applied for one on gumtree.com - although I didn't get it, it's another way of applying for a job, so maybe look on there, and also in your local paper

    The iron lung one was weird- when you had to say pros and cons of the positive and negative pressure... I was stumped!

    Is it worth doing English Lit? What does it involve? And would there be a lot of coursework? I'm more comfortable with exams than coursework and I'm going to be taking Math, Physics and French. I'm just not sure whether I should drop English Lit for Chem.. Any ideas?

    I think the biggest factors are if you enjoy literature and any career aspirations. What are you thinking of career wise? There is a coursework for English but I've been told its not that bad

    I don't already have the grades, but I'm pretty confident I already have what I need for my subjects... I think even if I lost 3/4 of the marks in the final exams for them I would still get into the courses so nothing to worry about for me really
    Good good

    Same for me for maths and further maths
    :five: Cool, I could never imagine myself doing further maths, I'm already worried about the Maths A level!

    I was considering Physics instead of English Lit in case it would make me more desirable for Medicine (I kinda want to be more of a Uni lecturer now). I did some research and it seems that all three sciences are not necessary, just Chemistry and preferably Biology. I though an essay based subject, especially one that I enjoy more than Physics, would throw some versatility into the mixture. But still, Physics goes very nicely with the your other choices. If you do change, I would recommend something essay based, but one you enjoy!

    Hey peeps. I was just wondering about how people say that choosing bio, chem, and maths with a language/humanity would economics count as one of these subjects and would taking economics as make me more competitive ?

    It depends on what you want to do and apply for at Uni... What are you thinking of doing?

    Generally it is one of the more respected A Levels though, if that's what you're wondering!

    Apparently, the grades for core subjects will be lower but optional subject will be higher than last years
