    I have just started sixth form and chosen to do A levels in Biology, Chemistry, Psychology and Spanish. I was only going to do Spanish for an AS and carry on the other three for A2, however, I am a few weeks into doing Spanish and I really do not enjoy it. So, I was wondering if I dropped Spanish now and only had 3 A2's would I still be able to study medicine at University, or would I not be accepted as I have not done 4 subjects at A level?
    Thank you.

    No an AS is not required.

    With the reforms especially, almost all medical schools require AAA.

    I say most because there may be the odd medical school who do still require that I'm not aware of. I don't think so but I don't like to say with certainty if I haven't checked each one individually so do check yourself.
