Persuade me! :)Watch
Well, I apologise for yet another thread on A level choices, but at the moment I am VERY confused in choosing them.
I am definitely doing chem+bio+geog , but I am in confusion whether to do english lit/maths.
Please look at my signature and provide your opinion.
(If it helps I want to do medicine and I know most med schools just want chem+bio at a level. Also I am thinking of doing chem+bio+geog at A2 and just do maths/english lit at AS).
Thanks in advance!!!
If you want to do medicine then I would suggest you pick maths
But if you have a career in mind, look up what you need to do for that.
A cousin of mine did 3 A Levels, one of which was French (I forget the other two, but I know they were relevant to Medicine) and got into Imperial to do Medicine - just goes to show you don't need to do all sciences/maths.
Its a beast of a subject....far better than english lit
I think itll be good for medicine too....and its just, nice!
However if you prefer English lit then doing it wouldn't disadvantage you.
In fact some unis (like UCL) like a contrasting non-science subject and say they prefer it to someone with 3 science subjects. However places like Cambridge prefer someone with 3 science subjects.
So it depends on which subjects you prefer and could do best in, and where you're planning on applying to.
+ lots of reading (if you like reading)
- no use to medicine
- answers are all subjective, so if you get an examiner that doesn't agree with your opinions, you may be screwed.
+ always a set answer
+ it's all the same, you're just doing the same stuff over and over again
+ easy to revise - just do papers
+ if you understand it, it's easy
+ no coursework
- it's deadly boring (in my biased opinion)
- usually teachers are boring
- kind of pointless in life (but not for getting into uni or for computing)
i can't actually think of any more negatives for maths, but the fact that it's boring is a fairly strong determining factor in my opinion
