    I applied for medicine this year and got interviews but am still waiting to hear back from the Universities. For A-Levels i did / are doing Biology, Maths, Further Maths, Chemistry and English. For most of the Unis they just wanted Maths and Chemistry and/or Biology.

    Those are fine! Also I would recommend not dropping Biology after AS, as while some unis don't mind, it does limit where you can apply.

    Yeah, they're fine, just make sure you get at least AAA.

    Totally agree with this, I dropped biology and it hit me in applications (but I've done loads better after dropping it - my days were blighted by biology lessons).
    I did chemistry, physics, maths and biology. Some unis want chemistry and another science/maths, and some want chemistry and biology, so it's okay dropping either physics or RS after the first year.

    No Maths? :afraid:

    But seriously, your subjects are absolutely fine for Medicine. It doesn't matter which out of Physics or RS you take up to A2 unless applying for Cambridge.

    That's not true in the least, except for UCL (and even then it's fine as an AS).

    One of the links in this post has the definitive answer to your first question. Chemistry is required by most med schools, and Biology is required by some and welcomed by many.

    You don't need maths for medicine.

    I have an offer for Barts and I'm currently studying Biology Chemistry & Maths to A2. I dropped Physics after AS and I also did an AS in general studies - but medical schools don't consider general studies. Those A levels look fine to me.

    Most offers are AAA at the moment (except Oxbridge & Birmingham). But it could go up by the time you apply - just something to be aware of.
