I'm in year 11 and I'm not being made to make any decisions yet but just wondering your opinion...

I've decided to take maths, biology and Spanish at AS, but obviously there's space for one more, and idk what to take.

I have two possible ideas for uni; either medicine or law.
If I wanted to go ahead with medicine I would have to take chemistry, it's required not to mention I'd need three science subjects, the other two being biology and maths. (Wouldn't dare take physics, it's awful xD)
The thing with that is that at GCSE I find chemistry really hard; I'm doing separate sciences so I'm doing unit 3 at the minute and for some reason I find it so much harder to understand than say biology. It's kind of putting me off the entire idea of medicine because it would be so much harder at AS/A level.

I'm not entirely sure what you'd have to take for law (aside from obviously Law AS); I thought maybe English but again not sure.

sorry if that's a bit vague, lmfao. I think I *probably* could do chemistry if I put my mind to it but omggg two more years of being completely at sea makes me want to scream, lol.

Personally, if youre finding chemistry hard at gcse, it may not be the best route for you do to it at a level/do medicine. I found the step up HUGE obviously i dont represent everyone but lots of people do feel that way.

English Lit or History for Law, and obviously Chemistry for Medicine (as you already said) are the best options.

Yes, because we all have the same personality as you and feel the exact emotions as you and we know the things you like and dislike. Make up you own mind you fool.

You don't need Law A level for Law at uni. A lot of the best/highest up in the ranking universities for law would prefer you not to have it and have a more traditional/'respected' subject instead.
Saying that, if you're really interested in it, you should take it

As previously said, don't take law AS if you're doing it at uni. I'd recommend history or maybe english, economics... just something hard where you write essays :P As for medicine, yeah chemistry is right. But if you struggle with gcse chemistry, there is a big step up to AS, and you might struggle. Maybe physics would be better, I don't know. But just to warn you, chemistry is really hard
