    Hi I'm starting college in September. My college only offers 3 As levels but i will try to get onto 4. I know i want to do Biology, Chemistry, Philosphy. Could you advise me on a fourth (im not to confident with maths or physics). I am stuck between History, English literature, Economics or Psychology. Please advise on my a levels because i would like to attend Manchester, Leeds or Bristol Medical school, thank you.

    Any of those would be perfectly acceptable. Pick the one you find the most interesting and think you can do best in.

    It really doesnt matter. Do whichever subjects (including bio and chem) you enjoy and are most likely to get an A in.

    Do some research. Because of the new a-level changes, some medical schools are only requiring 3 subjects.

    Yes. As long as you get an A in it.

    Hi my school only allowes us to do 3 as levels beacuse of the changes to the specification moving all exams to the end of the year. Would i still be considered for medicine if i did biology, chemistry and philosophy? Thank you (sorry this is my second thread). And should i do history instead??

    Yeah because of the new specification doing 3 is enough for medicine, and it's your choice to do phil or history, i don't think it would make much difference

    Scroll to the bottom of the page and insert the A levels you are taking and it should come up with best matching results hence in your case medicine.
