I'm sure there are loads of forums about this, but I can't find any which actually suit my specific options.
Basically, I want to study medicine at university, and even if I fall short of that, I still want to do something in a similar field.
Because of this, I want to take A levels which are appropriate to Medicine, but also leaving my options open within the scientific field, if that makes sense.
I am definitely taking Chemistry and Maths at College.
However, I do not know whether to take Biology or Human biology.
Essentially, I want to do Human Biology, because I much prefer the course, and think I would probably get a better grade in it because I enjoy it more.
However, some people seem to say Biology is preferred by med schools.
Some information says this isn't the case any more, and uni's have moved away from this, but others say it still makes a difference.
If I have to do it, I will take Biology, and I will still enjoy it, im sure, but Human Biology is just a preference.
Also, I am unsure whether to take History or Psychology.
Similarly, I would prefer to do Psychology, and would probably get a slightly better grade, but I have heard uni's prefer history.
Any guidance would be appreciated, as to what med schools prefer, or the reasons I should use to choose my A levels.
