After I complete my A-levels, I want to go on and do Medicine at University.
The subject combination I currently have is Maths, Chemistry, Biology and Geography as my Top 4.
Basically, I want to know which one of these I should drop if I was to only take three of these subjects. I know that Maths and Chemistry are essential for Medicine, but changes to the A-level system have made people generally only take three.
In a hypothetical situation, if I got the grades to have the possibility to take all four and do Medicine, should I do it? I know that a lot of people who do Medicine will have those subjects under their belt at high grades, but my thought process behind choosing Geography was that I wanted to have a more 'diverse' subject combination to make me stand out a bit more.
If I were to only take three, I'd probably drop Biology, but Geography is a subject I enjoy a lot and one that I'm very good at.

Maths is NOT essential for medicine. Only one college at Cambridge uni require it. No other uni's even recommend it.
All uni's require chemistry and manyy require chemistry and biology.
DO NOT DROP BIOLOGY.
I'd say either maths or geography - but geography is easier than maths and you may want to consider that, and if you enjoy it definitely take it onto A2.
One of my friends currently applying for medicine this year does bio,chem and geog and it hasn't held her back from getting all her 4 interviews and an offer so far.Last edited by tcameron; 27-01-2016 at 20:48.
