    So do you not need physics, if you decide to change your mind to chemical engineering? I'm in a similar situation and have put down:

    Maths, Biology, Chemistry, Physics
    but would like to change physics to geography, but i dont wont chemical engineering to be ruled out :confused:

    EDIT: I also have the option of further maths
    Yes I have thought about this and have been thinking about changing economics for a long time, this is just what currently is on my application to sixth form.
    Chemical engineering is only really one of my alternative ideas, I have been looking at the Natural Sciences course at Cambridge (I can dream...lol)

    To be honest my main love is chemistry - I am a true chemistry geek and if I can't reach medicine (which is quite likely...) then I would not be surprised seeing myself applying for various chemistry based courses with a biology rather than physics tilt.

    I'm not certain about further maths yet, I have a sixth form induction week in July in which I will find out more

    I want to do Medicine and I'm thinking of Physics, Chemistry and Biology (+Philosophy) I'm not sure if not having Maths would be detrimental but I've read it's not a necessity.
    Yeah I know it's not necessary but I've spoken to junior doctors and they've said it is useful to have

    Yeah a few other schools in wales do OCR science and the rest WJEC but ours decided to do all WJEC except for Physics, Art, Psychology >.< Apparently Edexcel used to be the easiest until fairly recently they've made it harder. I reckon WJEC is either the hardest or one of the harder exam boards! What school you at?
