    A lot of unis also ask for a 4th AS, so I'd try and take an additional subject if I were you.

    Hey there,

    With the introduction of new linear A levels, many universities will not be considering AS results. You can see how each university considers AS levels here:

    Med School AS level admissions policies

    For the universities who don't look at AS levels (which contrary to the post above, is most of them), three A levels is perfectly fine. You need to be sure that you are on track for at least AAA or A*AA depending on which universities you are thinking of applying to.

    Good luck with your application!

    No they don't.

    No they don't.
    Apologies for the misinformation, I'm forgetting A-Levels have changed since my day!

    OP - your subjects seem like good choices for medicine. *
