    I've only taken Psychology, History, Geography and Chemistry but kind of want to change but it's too late. Can I still do medicine? The teacher who helped me pick said I could do a foundation course and still had the choice but now I'm not so sure she was right. Everywhere I've looked, you need Biology or at least 2 science....

    Thank you

    Unfortunately, most, if not all, of the unis ask for biology to at least AS level, or another lab-based science. Even maths would be okay for some.
    It wouldn't hurt to look though, some might be okay with it maybe?
    Is it definitely too late to change one of your subjects to biology? Or pick it up as the 5th subject?

    Well I found it, it's a foundation course you do, with an extra year.
