    As long as you have biology and chemistry, your third/fourth subject can be anything as long as it is academically rigorous.
    Med schools like UCL even prefer contrasting subjects.
    I know people who are in medical school and they did bio, chem, french and german for A level.

    Yeah, medical schools like languages as a non-science subject. It would be best to do Spanish next year along with your other A levels, so you would be able to count it as an A level within the 2 year period.
    I've heard that english literature is quite subjective, some people love it whilst some hate it. Definitely join an English Club, you can then also talk about it in your personal statement!

    Are you in medical school?
    And she is intending to do maths, bio, chem and spanish. So Spanish would be a subject on the side. As it would not be part of the 3 A2s required in the offer.

    I have applied for Med and am currently am studying Bio, Chem, Phys and Spanish. I would recommend taking a language alongside the sciences as it is really enjoyable, you learn how to structure arguments and you amass good general knowledge. Languages are also valued by Unis generally.
