I am Year 11 student who needs help picking A level subjects. I want to go through the medicine route. I want to know which is more beneficial to do at A level; physics or psychology. I am very enthusiastic about science and at A-B currently in Maths however I do not enjoy it at all, never learnt anything about psychology at GCSE Level.
My option are: Biology, Chemistry and Physics
or Biology, Chemistry and Psychology
Thanks in advance for your responses.

I don't think one combination is necessarily better than the other. But if you don't like maths, will you enjoy physics? Taking a subject you've not done before is always a risk, especially if you want to do medicine as you need top grades. I suggest you do a bit more research into psychology, download the course specification, look at exam papers and have a read through of the textbooks.

I'm currently a med student, your A-Level choices don't matter as long as you have biology, chemistry and one other academic subject - therefore this can be any of the choices you've listed above.
If you're currently only at A/B grade at maths then there's a strong chance you won't be able to keep up with A-Level maths.
