    Do i need physics or maths to study medicine at uni?

    Has anyone got accepted into medicine without physics or maths?

    Does not doing physics or maths narrow my chances of studyng medicine at uni?

    What would be good 3rd and 4th alevel choices for medicine?


    Thank you loads.

    You can find all this information with a little research on Google. UCAS website says doing Biology, Chemistry and Maths keeps all medical school choices open and If you don’t take maths or physics but do take chemistry and biology, it will keep open the vast majority. Most people I know of have Biology, maths and chemistry as this is probably safest. Your fourth a level choice can be anything really, although most unis prefer if you have a 'facilitating subject'. Aside from the sciences, maths and further maths, a facilitating subject is one of the following: English Literature, Geography, History, Languages (Classical and Modern). I advise you to look at the UCAS website and university websites!

    It really depends on which universities you'd like to apply for

    Unless you are applying for Cambridge, you don't need to take three sciences. And unless you are applying to one specific Cambridge college ( cant remember which ) you don't need maths.
