    Hiya, just posting to get a straight answer and hopefully a few suggestions.

    I am 21 and left school in 2008 with a B in English literature and C's in maths, all 3 sciences and history.
    I would like to return to studying and hoping to take a levels at my local college.

    I was thinking of taking chemistry, biology, physics and English literature to go on to study medicine. I was just wondering whether these subjects are 'respectable' enough and also whether I could drop one a level and just do three?

    As you can tell it has been a few years since I studied and I am currently working in a specialised job since leaving school so haven't really thought/learnt about anything else, do you think I will be overwhelmed by these subjects? I pick things up well in general, just a bit nervous about my choices and whether they are sufficient enough to study medicine.

    Would be interesting to hear your views, thanks for reading

    Chemistry and Biology are pretty much essential for a Medicine application, as I understand it. Physics can't hurt and I have read elsewhere that some medical schools like to see evidence of essay-writing, so Eng Lit would be good. If you are in doubt, check the requirements from individual departments to which you are considering applying.
