    Hi guys, yet another choice...

    Do I take maths or French?

    I want to do Medicine at Birmingham or Cambridge uni, and I've definitely decided on Biology, Chemistry and Physics but I can't decide on the other.

    I intend to carry on all 4 subjects, so which one should I take?

    I'm an all around student who has already achieved an A* in maths and French for GCSE.

    Thanks for the help.

    As you already have the subjects necessary for medicine (bio + chem) I would say do whichever you enjoy studying more.

    Personally I would choose French, because its completely different to your other subjects so gives you a bit of variation and I've always thought it would be beneficial to be able to speak another language quite fluently. That's just my opinion though!

    That's what I thought too, but I'm getting the impression that its going to be really hard! I can't talk fluently in a conversation at all really, well I mean like on a certain topic haha.

    I'd suggest maths, apparently physics A2 is near impossible if you haven't done or aren't doing maths. Everyone I know who did physics without maths really struggled (including my sister who's got an IQ of over 150)

    At my college, doing maths with mechanics is compulsory for those doing physics. So, I'd have to agree; maths will hopefully support your physics.

    Maths would fit nicely with your other subjects but French is very respected too and as you already have 3 science subjects I don't think universities would mind too much which one you did
