Hey everyone! I have a little conundrum ^^"
These are the A-Levels I definitely want to do:
-Chemistry
-Psychology
-Maths.

In the future, I'm considering doing psychology at university or a medicine degree. But I'm stuck between physics and English Literature.

Can anyone give me any advice on this? Thanks for any help! ^_^

Have you considered Biology? It would be more relevant than Physics or En Lit

If you want to do medicine surely you would want biology with the chemistry? Or at any rate it would be better to have that and if you got an interview then you would need a justified reason why you didn't take it.
If you're definitely not taking biology I'd go physics to go with the maths and chemistry as that combination is generally better.

I have considered it, definitely, but I don't really think that bio is one of my best subjects and, if I'm honest, I don't really like it all that much and I'd prefer to do physics.

I suppose so, I just thought that maybe because Psych has a lot of essays and stuff in it that English lit would make it a lot easier to do that with all the essays and things? ^_^

The chemistry and maths are good choices for medicine, psychology speaks for itself. You have the main ones, I'd do En Lit as it gives you a wider variety.

If you don't really like biology that much then I'm not convinced you'd want to do medicine. In which case eng lit might be better to help with going towards psychology.

Er... you do realize that many universities offering Medicine want both Biology and Chemistry, right?

Maybe you should consider applying for a different degree.

Having studied Eng Lit for A levels, I would definitely not compare it with psychology (I studied it too). It is completely different as this subject requires very strong critical and analysing skills with a ton of passion for the texts you are made to study. If you are not prepared to take on such a heavy subject, please stick with Physics as that is more of a memorising subject. Also, this subj requires an abundance of patience as your writing skills take time to develop. It's not something you will be able to master within months, its more of an entire A level period kind of thing. Be aware!

I think I'm headed more towards the idea of doing psychiatry within the medicine degree, so like specialising. But I think Psych+Behavioural Sciences speaks better. Thanks for help ^_^

As for the actual A Levels, I'm opting to do 5. I'll do both English Lit and Physics, but I think I'll most likely drop one within the first two weeks if I think it'll be too much, which I probably will. Thanks for the help though everyone.
