    Im currently in Year 11 and wanting to go onto study my A Levels next year, and Im at the point of deciding what A Level subjects I want to do, but I really cant make up my mind. The career path I would like to pursue is either a Paramedic or Doctor.

    Could anyone help me decide which A Levels to choose for these careers please?

    Aspiring medics typically choose the combination of biology, chemistry, Maths and another subject at A-Level

    Biology and chemistry are required for medicine, and would also be good choices for paramedic science, although it often only requires one science. The 3rd (& 4th if you do one) is up to you, although for medicine it can be better to pick a traditional subject as long as you will do well at it. Maths is not required.
