    I really want to study sciences for alevels but I'm not sure if I want to do physics. Currently my options are Maths chemistry and biology. I want to do physics but I'm not sure if I will be able to cope as I don't know the content

    your current choices are fine, and it doesn't matter if you don't do physics, it's not a requirement of medicine or forensics

    For most forensics courses you only need Chemistry or Biology but the top universities tend to ask for both. I haven't seen Physics as a requirement for any

    Biology and chemistry are compulsory, and maths is highly recommended.

    Your fourth A-Level can be whatever you want it to be, however I would recommend a facilitating subject due to the sheer competition for medicine places. Subjects that fall into this category are english, history, geography, physics and modern European languages (French, Spanish, German ...). As long as your fourth A-level is among these subjects you should be ok.

    I would always pick a facilitating subject, as aforementioned by previous poster. Personally, I'm also thinking of doing medicine and my options are identical to yours but as my fourth I'm picking French because that's something I'm interested in.
