    I'd pick Chemistry and Biology if you'd still want to keep your options open. I didn't do any sciences at AS or A level, and I was still accepted onto MORSE (Maths, Operational Research, Stats and Econ) course.

    Having Chemistry and Biology will give you a much better chance should you decide to opt for medicine in the end

    Yeah, So for now i'm definitely doing maths, f.maths, econ and chem.

    i'm still giving a couple more days until i finally decide between biology and physics :|

    finally...would some universities still accept chemistry and physics for medicine? or is it just a no go?

    Well yes probably some would accept it, but you're very much narrowing your choices down. It really is much much safer to do both chemistry and biology. If you're keen on physics, how about doing it instead of economics? :dontknow:

    I was thinking that, but i decided against it because i dont want to put myself in a situation where i will be doing just science, i know it sounds a bit picky, but i kind of want something completely unrelated, which i'm interested in, to give me a change from just all science and maths, even though i like all the subjects. :|

    Well if you're considering medicine, you really should/must get Biology in somewhere. If you really want to do Economics, then just do Biology instead of Physics. Or else, do Biology instead of Economics, which would also enable you to do Physics.

    I guess it just depends whether you'd rather do Economics or Physics.
