    Hey, i'm just about to do my GCSE's and then i will have to make a choice about A-Levels. I'm sure I want to do medicine at Uni, so my options are Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics and then for my 4th option I am undecided on whether to take Law or Politics? Are they both respected A Levels? They both seem interesting and I like both but opinions out of the way- which would be better for Medicine? I know it doesnt really link but I;m hoping people could help? Thankyou

    I'd recommend politics. It'd give you a broader World-view and would be a pleasant change from the sciences. Although I'm passionate about law and legal studies, I really don't think a sixth-form-level teacher would give it justice, and I'd assume that it wouldn't be as beneficial to you as a person.

    If possible, I'd tell you to take history or English, but the choice is yours.

    Best of luck.

    Honestly for medicine just make sure you get the best grades you can. I think they are both valued equally so do whichever you think you'll get the best grade in. By the way only take maths if you really want to! It isn't necessary for medicine.
