    I have to choose my options TONIGHT and I am so confused. I am definitely taking biology, maths, chemistry and extended project but I have no idea what to take for my 4th subject. I want to do medicine or law (medical or financial) at uni... PE really really interests me and looks so good, luckily the theory really looks amazing, but I haven't taken it for GCSE. I am good at geography and I do enjoy it but A-level looks to be the same topics in more detail which I don't really want to do. I am extremely interested in travel though.... Any suggestions?

    If you'd like to do Law then geography is the more respected a level in general but don't do it if your heart isn't in it as you won't enjoy it and ultimately you will struggle to succeed at it

    Yeah that's what I am thinking! I am doing the extended project qualification which is literacy based, and I could always pick up geography AS in the second year, thank you!!

    PE is a waste of time unless you intend to study Sport Science or a related subject at Uni. It is not an academic subject, and will be regarded as a soft subject and not counted by many sensible Unis.

    You need solid, traditional subjects at very high grades for either Law or Medicine.
