    Hello,
    I'm in the beginning of Year 12 and I want to study medicine. I have chosen A level Chemistry, Biology and Physics. However, many people said that I will struggle without A-level Maths. Maths is my strongest subject in which a got a high A* in however I am really interested in Physics which I got an A in. I don't know whether I should do Maths or Physics. I know myself and I believe that I cant do 3.5/4 a levels that's why I need to choose between the two. Thank You.

    Clearly seems like you want to do Physics and are only considering maths instead because you are good at it / due to what people have said (even if there may be some truth to it, I don't know.)

    Biology, Chemistry and Physics is a popular combination; go for it if that's what you want to do.

    It is probably easier to get an A/A* in Maths than in Physics, however I think hard work will ultimately allow you to succeed in any subject.

    Thank you guys. The thing is the physic's teachers(only 1 with a physics degree who can't teach) are crap, everyone always has to drop out at A2, therefore I don't want to risk it. Because at the end of the day, it's my grade and I cant point the finger at someone. On the contrary, our math's teachers are great because people who scrap B's and A's managed to get A's and A*'s.
