    I need to chose my a-levels and need to submit the form this week, I'm interested at doing medicine at uni but I'm not 100%

    So far I have thought Chemistry, Biology, Maths, F Maths

    Is it essential that I do Biology for medicine or would it be better if I did physics as I could potentially get a better grade as physics and maths have a lot more in common?

    Also I'm not sure if I need to do further maths too. I find GCSE maths and additional maths pretty easy but I don't know how much harder further maths will be and I'm not sure if it's necessary for medicine?

    Biology is a must if u want to study medicine. You can perhaps avoid F maths and do physics instead otherwise thrice subjects are fine

    Not all unis require biology. e.g. Bristol.


    Chemistry's compulsory to do medicine, and biology would be really helpful and keep most medical school open to you in the future than physics

    Biology will be helpful to you and will give you more options.
