    I had the same problem! Well...technically I still do. I've chosen my A levels and I went for Physics, but I kept thinking I should have chosen French. To cut a long story short, I kept my original choices (for now, anyway) and I'm going to see what grades I get for my GCSEs and if I wanna change then, I'll change! Why not do that too?

    Lol, at my school we can't due to the stupid timetabling. One of my friends said that actually unis prefer you to NOT have all sciences and maths at A Level when applying for medicine - this is true? Apparently it suggests that you have no life... :p:

    I don't know about no life, but yes, apparently medical schools increasingly prefer applicants to have a mix of arts and sciences as it shows you're well-rounded and good at other things besides science.
