I had my option evening last night and i choose health and social care , geography and triple science gcse:awesome: and right now i am thinking if health and social care was the necessary pathway for me to go if i want to be involved in medicine when i am older? Otherwise i would have picked something better. Is it easy to get A or A*? Does it take a lot if dedication and commitement? Is it interesting? What makes it different from odinary triple?

These questions have been going through my head since last night and i would like some answers from u guys.

I don't do health and social care and never have, but it's not necessary at all. You need biology, chemistry and maths (and decent english)

Good grief - do you want to do medicine - then don't touch these mickey mouse subjects. Three sciences; maths; a language other than english; bit of history and maybe geography. RE or philosophy and ethics. Sorted

I think health and social care is probably seen as a soft subject. Seems easy to get an A* in. But at Uni they mainly look that you have A*'s in Maths, Sciences and English.

Health and social can get you into nursing, but won't have anything to do with medicine. They want academic subjects for medicine - health and social isn't seen as academic.
If you're interested in doing medicine in uni and the entry requirements, go onto www.ucas.com , search for medicine and look at the entry requirements for the uni's. They normally say what GCSE's they're looking for (as well as A levels).

hey, I know I’m late but I was thinking of health and social, triple science and history- is that a good choice? Where are you at in your life now?
