    Hi I'm going to be dropping one of my AS level subjects and only taking 3 A2 levels in year 13. This means I will have more time to concentrate on my three remaining subjects although I'm not sure what else I can do with this extra time to enhance my uni application with the idea of going into medicine.
    Any help?

    Voluntary work or extended project qualification?
    Although if you do an EPQ, make sure you pick a REALLY REALLY REALLY interesting topic!

    Do what almost everybody else does on their frees when they drop their fourth AS and do three A2s - nothing
    I didn't get that luxury as I dropped an AS but started another.

    Definitly see if you can get some voluntary work or work experience as this is vital for applying to medicine. Also, if you haven't already, get a part time job.
