I'm choosing my a levels at the minute and thinking of studying medicine preferably at a Russell group uni. For A levels I'm choosing Maths, Chemistry and Biology. For a fourth subject I'm choosing between English Lit and RE which do you think is best?

Your two posts contradict each other. Are you choosing between chemistry and RE or the three stated in this thread? If you want to pursue medicine it's academic which essay based higher you chose from this selection, as long as you have the science subjects. If you wish to study Law like you implied on the other thread. Pick essay based subjects over science ones. Hope this helped a bit, good luck.

Either English lit or History. RE is not very useful in Medicine but philosophy is since you learn about ethical principles. I would choose whichever one you enjoy most.

I would advise you to pick the one you actually enjoy the most - as a fourth AS-level or possibly Fourth A-level, do something you enjoy more. I think a change of pace from all the maths and sciences and something that would provide more character to you, would be RE but that's just my opinion.

RE might be helpful in understanding ethics and stuff too. I'm sure ethics and morals play a big part in medicine already.

But English Literature demonstrates a unique characteristic too. It usually indicates you're quite creative and perceptive. I think History is good too as it's heavy with writing essays and stuff and Universities like to see that.

I've just searched up other people asking the same/similar question to you, and someone chose the same as you and RE. But as other people have stated, philosophy or psychology might be useful for medicine.

Well, what do you think about what I've said? You should hear other people's opinions too, and the voice from your own heart.

Don't forget to do work experience and other medical related opportunities whenever they pop up and make sure to do them. Don't forget about preparing for the UKCAT and BMAT exams early. Research, prepare, research, Learn, and continue to evolve.
