    I'm looking to apply for medicine at these universities:
    Southampton
    Kings
    Imperial/UCL
    Nottingham

    I've just started Year 12 and have chosen these Subjects to study at A Level:
    Biology
    Chemistry
    Maths
    Further Maths

    What I initially thought of doing was to do both Maths and Further Maths at AS level ( since there is no AS level for Biology and Chemistry) and then drop Further Maths so that I study Biology, Chemistry and Maths at Year 13 for A level.

    However due to changes in the A-level specification the requirements for applying to Medical School for 2017 have changed. This means that they are only looking for 3 A levels and not expecting a fourth subject to be done at AS level.
    Does this really mean that a fourth subject does not need to be done at only AS level
    Therefore do you think its worth it to do Further Maths up to AS level or should I just drop it now so that I can focus on the other three subjects for 2 years. I know that I'm definitely not going to do Further Maths at A2 (only as AS).
    Also do you think the new 2017 requirements for applying to medical school are subject to change
