    Hello there, I am in year 11 and would like to get some advice on A-Level Choices. Currently I am predicted 5 a*s and 4 a's and i would like to get some advice on my future. As I am really into the science realm and would like to go into medicine i have chosen Chemistry, Biology, Physics, and Maths as my A-Level choices. Apparently these are extremely hard and i would like some advice

    Thanks

    They look okay. A couple of med schools like a contrast subject but if you prefer the sciences then go for it.

    subjects are only hard if you're not good at them/don't actually like them

    if you put the effort in you'll be fine

    I'm taking biology, i absolutely love it, but it is a big step-up from gcse's. No joke. Everyone thinks at first it would be easy (i did) but it's not. Definately worth it

    you could always take physics out and put in a non-science subject if you think it'll be a bit much?

    I started off doing : maths, further maths, physics, chem and bio. in terms of difficulty, chemistry is the hardest; both conceptually difficult and loads to remember.
    Biology has the largest volume of work but its mainly down to memory.memory and memory.
    i dropped bio early on cos of the teacher so now its just 4 a levels.
    With those predicted grades ( surprisingly similar to the grades i got) you'll definitely be able to handle those a levels.
    For medicine you have to do chemistry, every course requires it!! also, some unis are asking for biology aswell now.
    If you've got any questions you can pm me or something if you like
