    Hi guys, I am thinking of doing A-levels to boost my application (I am from outside the UK). I am definetely doing Chemistry and Bio, and I am considering doing Maths as a third subject. I've never liked Maths tho, so if I chose some other subject like Spanish, would it lower my chances of getting into med school? I've heard some preference is given for students who take contrasting subjects at UCL, in this case isn't it better to take Spanish instead of Maths? UCL is my dream but I would hate to lower my chances at getting into med school because of not taking Maths. Also, are three A2 levels and one at As enough or should I take more, like four to A2 and one to As?

    Recently I've been thinking of either Religious Studies or Psychology. What do you think about that? Also, do you happen to know about UCL's contrasting subject policy? In this case, isn't it better to choose something different than Maths?
