    I want to have the possibility to study medicine at elite uni's (Oxford, Cambridge etc.), but I don't want to fully limit my options to medicine. I'm still not fully decided on medicine so I would also like to keep my options open in the humanitarian study/career path, i.e law or economics. I have to submit my choices tomorrow. I chose HL: Chem, Bio, Math, His; SL: English A Finnish B, but unfortunately these subject choices will not be possible, which is due to History HL and Biology HL lessons overlapping. This has made me very confused with my subject choices and I am not really sure what to do with my subject choices. Please provide me some insight on this matter Subjects available: Mathematics( studies, SL, HL), Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Psychology, History, Philosophy(SL only) and languages English and Finnish

    If you are serious about studying medicine then you should be prepared to study it anywhere, not just at 'elite universities'. All med schools in the UK are equally good, it doesn't matter if you attend Oxford or Aberdeen, the training and education you receive will be the same. You have to do Biology and Chemistry at HL. Your chances of getting into Oxbridge will be much higher if your third HL is a science (maths or physics).
