    Hi, I have already given in my application form to go to my school's 6th form, and i put down three sciences and history. I'm having second thoughts about physics, however, and given a completely free reign, with no thought about what uni's like, I'd do politics instead. So the question is, should I take chem, bio, politics and history, or 3 sciences and history?

    For the majority of unis that do medicine, only biology and chemistry are absolute requirements. If there's a specific place you want to apply to, check out their entry requirements and if they say they want physics, you'll have to do it or not apply to that uni.

    I did bio, chem, computing and sociology (I dropped soc) and I had no problems getting offers.

    yeah, very few uni's REQUIRE physics, but as a science subject, surely it would look better than politics?

    Chem and bio are the main requirements, if you prefer politics then take it! You could always use it as a second career option if you change your mind in the future.
    Basically just choose whichever you think you'll enjoy more and will be more beneficial in th future.

    Those subjects sound fine to me. You have 3 sciences, and geography is also well respected.
