    Hi,

    So my name is Sami and I am thinking about applying for medicine.


    However, as I am thinking about applying to University, I need biology and chemistry, which I already have.

    But, I am thinking about changing my options. Of course, I am keeping biology and chemistry, but I am contemplating a move to sociology

    Are psychology and sociology (along with biology and chemistry) suitable subjects for applying for medicine?

    I would greatly appreciate a reply.

    Thanks,

    Sami

    Hi,

    So my name is Sami and I am thinking about applying for medicine next year, in year 13.

    Although I have already chosen my options: biology; chemistry; geography; psychology.

    However, as I am thinking about applying to Birmingham University, I need biology and chemistry, which I already have.

    But, I am thinking about changing my options. Of course, I am keeping biology and chemistry, but I am contemplating a move to sociology from geography.

    Are psychology and sociology (along with biology and chemistry) suitable subjects for applying for medicine (at Birmingham University)?

    I would greatly appreciate a reply, as this is a very stressful time for me.

    Thanks,

    Sami

    They're fine yes. Having bio and chem as the core is the necessary thing.

    Birmingham in particular has very high GCSE requirements. They're relaxed a bit this year, but are still very high. Maybe you should check that if you haven't already.

    Keep Geography. It's more respected.

    I'd say keep Geography because the unis will probably see it as a more academic subject in comparison to sociology
