    For a lot of universities, they would require biology and chemistry at A Level, plus one other which can any subject of your choice. So you'll have to play around with your choice in subjects as just biology won't be enough.

    You can but you'd be very limited with the amount of uni's you'd be eligible applying to.

    Chemistry is pretty much a requirement for the majority of med schools so to give yourself the best chance, you should do chemistry. Check out the table below:

    It is possible but yeah you would be greatly limiting your options. I'd say your best bet with those subjects is to apply to Medicine courses aimed at those for non-science backgrounds. From my understanding, there are usually fewer places on these courses thus competition may be greater than standard medicine courses.

    These are a few I myself came across when I was looking to apply to medicine with a foundation year. If they interest you I suggest you search google or UCAS for similar courses as there may be a few more to choose from.

    Sorry, I can't help you with the requirements with regards to being a pilot or astronaut. I can just about get my head around medicine entry requirements :P

    I think, before you do anything or make any decisions, you need to take some time to think about what it is you want to do. Look into the careers which interest you. Learn more about them. Shadow. Work experience. There's no harm in taking a year out to help get your thoughts in order.

    Absolutely this. Hedging your bets between two very competitive career paths is most likely to get you neither. You need to pick which way you want to go then put everything into it.
