    Oo great! If you don't mind me asking, where are you studying medicine, what A Levels did you do and what were your results and where abouts are you in your study for medicine?

    Most places don't care as long as biology and chemistry are there. Don't listen to any BS telling you otherwise. Only probably Oxbridge care what your other options are. What's most important is getting the As. Although, I'd still be a little bit weary of picking RS and Psych just in case. I'd swap one of them with something a bit harder. I did Bio Chem Politics and Philosophy and got 4 interviews where the offers all depended on interview performance only so I must have done something right

    Dont listen to him OP

    This guy clearly has no idea what he is talking about.

    You dont need Chem and Bio, all schools require Chemistry and only a selected few requires Biology

    I am aware that you are taking both but from this you can see that you should take what that guy says with a pinch of salt as clearly he has no idea what he is on about before criticising others

    Your subject combinations are perfectly fine

    @repti check your information before trying to criticise others

    16 medical schools require biology at either AS or A2. You're the one who doesn't know what he's talking about evidently. The proof is here: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki...l_Requirements

    Do 16 medical schools look like a 'select few' to you??? You should brush up on your vocabulary mate

    I meant that it might look decent as its quite respected, and would probably look better than a less respected subject.

    What's a less respected subject? And where's your source for this?

    Thank you guys! I am considering to change my A Level to Physics but I've heard mixed reviews about this. Some people are telling me it's the hardest A Level and others are telling me it's fine, /:

    I know this thread is not about Physics but is there anyone here that has done Physics from Edexcel as an AS and how did they find it?


    P.s I'm a new person to TSR so what does OP mean?🙈

    Chemistry is the most important , then bio. You don't necessarily need maths , but it's a good hard subject to have.

    Don't pick physics without maths, you'd be unnecessarily handicapping yourself. Your goal should be to get 4 As, stop worrying about what subjects these will be in. It's better to get 4 As in the subject you initially wanted to pick then AABC if you substitute them with maths and physics
