    Is it possible to choose a-levels which keep open both business and medicine?
    So far I think I would choose biology, chemistry and economics, but the fourth one is causing me problems.
    I have a flair for languages and so am taking two at GCSE level, and I know I want to study abroad, but would it be better if I just took French classes outside of school (as French is my best language) rather than took it as an a-level qualification?
    I'm also greatly interested in the government & politics a-level, but would it be better if I took physics instead? I love nuclear physics and astrophysics, but I confess to being bored by forces and circuits.
    Thank you!

    All you need for medicine is chemistry and usually biology. They don't care what else you take.

    You could take maths? But honestly, choose the subject that interests you, i think business doesn't really have subject requirements, but you'd be better off looking on university requirements.

    Bio,Chem, maths and business

    Biology, Chemistry, Maths and then something that you'd enjoy - a language would be good.
