    So, I plan on studying Medicine (one day) and have picked Biology, Chemistry and Psychology. Biology and Chemistry as they're my two strongest sciences (little to no interest in Physics) and Psychology as I'm oddly good at essay based subjects; also interested in the content covered. Do you think picking the third subject to be Psychology rather than maths/Physics will put me as a disadvantage? I don't mind putting the extra hours in to learn logarithms for Chemistry and other related skills. Thought? Also, does anyone have any experience with A Level Psychology? How did you find it?

    I've asked for this to be moved to our medicine forum.

    AFAIK only a handful of colleges at cambridge prefer applicants with 3 sciences. Most other med schools welcome some variety. I'm sure more knowledgeable medics will add to this though

    Those choices would be absolutely fine. As PQ says, only Cambridge asks for three sciences.
