    I'm feeling really depressed and upset over my a-level choices. I'm doing Psychology, Chemistry, History and Geography. Yeah they're academic but now I'm really interested in Medicine and there's very few places that'll take you without Biology since that would mean a foundation year and they only have about 10 places for that. It's too late to change now and I'm just really upset over it and I've researched all about it. I just don't think I'm interested in any other field as much anymore and that's really bugging me recently.

    Are you sure theres no other fields you're interested in? What you could do is do biology next year either in a year or two years. And you could take a gap year so you could do it maybe? I dont really know what else to say? Are you sure its took late to add it because I know sometimes they make exceptions. Like if somone just moved im sure they will let them do it even though its been more than 6 weeks.

    Switch to biology as now. if you're extremely time efficient, you can do it. Trust me. And drop history after AS

    I agree with the people above, either switch to Biology ASAP, or take a gap year and complete it then. If your heart is 100% set on medicine then this is the best route to take
