    now that I'm thinking about it is there really any point being a maths prefect if I want to apply for medicine.

    I can't even write that I was a "science prefect" or even include it in my personal statement really I mean what would I say?

    what do you think?

    Just say you were a maths prefect - every single thing in your life doesn't have to be geared towards medicine, it's okay to have other interests. Anyway I'm sure the general skills you'd gain as a maths prefect (leadership, organisation, etc) are still relevant to a medicine personal statement.

    I don't think they'd say that, that would be very mean indeed! And irrelevant too, it's not even like A level biology and medicine are the same thing.
