    I've just found out my GCSE results and I am really, really happy with them but I am struggling to pick my fourth A level choice. I am seriously thinking about doing medicine and i'm not sure whether I should do physics or maths?
    I am definitely doing History, Chemistry and Biology (I got A*s in all of them) but I don't know if is should do Maths (I got an A*) because I feel like I need to do it in order to do Medicine. OR Physics as I feel I will enjoy it more, but will me not doing Maths as well make it too hard? Also I am slightly discouraged about doing it because I got an A (I was 2 marks aways from an A*)...

    Will Physics be too hard?
    Do I need Maths to do medicine?
    Will Maths be too hard?

    Please help! Thanks

    You do not need maths to do medicine, and physics is just as beneficial. They are both hard subjects, so I would suggest that you do the one which you honestly think you will perform better at For a lot of people, this would be maths (as maths supports physics anyway)
