    Hi! I'm going to sixth form in September and currently thinking about what subjects to take. I aim for a career in medicine and so I'll be studying biology, chemistry and maths. However, for a forth option I'm torn between psycology and PE. I'm not studying PE at GCSE but my teachers say that I can still do it at sixth form as long as I do lots of extra-curricular activities and get the required maths and science grades. I was wondering if anybody could give any advice over whether I would be able to catch up on what I might have missed at GCSE and will it be worth it? Also, what would be the best option? Thank you!

    Whichever one interest you more. You won't be put at a disadvantage, and you honestly don't need GCSE knowledge to so it at a-level (as they basically recap everything).

    Take some good old fashioned d##k!
    It's healthy, nutritious, and approved by Patrick Stewart.

    It also prevents coronary heart disease by 330% (proven by rat scientists).

    Trust me, I'm a cocktor.
