    at AS I've just received AAAB with three As in biology chemistry and lit and the b in maths. I'm seriously considering medicine and i can't decide if i should drop maths in favour of lit. It comes so easily to me whereas maths definitely does not.
    I don't know if i should play to this advantage and go with lit which is the easy route or stick with maths chem and bio as this is the typical offer.I have all A* and A grades at gcse and I've done a tonne of voluntary work soim dead set on med

    You certainly do not need maths to study medicine. English Lit as a third A level is absolutely fine and won't affect your chances of getting into medicine. If you don't think you can get an A in maths, don't do it.
