    Just a question on whether 3 as and a levels are good enough for medicine at uni? I would really prefer to do 3 a levels but I feel like I would have a really low chance of getting accepted with only 3

    One's chance of getting into medicine under the perfect circumstances is usually around nil, therefore studying fewer than four AS-levels would probably make that chance less than nil.

    Take four.

    So are you saying taking 3 a levels would make my chances almost impossible?

    Most universities for medicine only require 3 and also wouldn't doing 4 put more of a workload on them and if they can't cope and don't get the 3As at least needed then that would be a waste. Do 3 and make sure you ace them
