    My advice is that some medical schools don't accept PE as part of your offer as biology is also there.

    What about an essay based subject? Uni s love a range of subjects and don't really favour PE or business studies.

    I'm not sure, but I chose Geography as my fourth to train my writing/analytical skills, and have a diverse option choice.

    P.E. instead of another science based subject like physics? Kinda risky if you ask me.

    Many medical schools will not except PE as a stand-alone subject when you take it in conjunction with Biology duet the cross-over of content- so in my opinion it would be better to take a different subject. However Business Studies is usually seen as a softer subject. If you can and are able to I would recommend taking a more medically relevant a-level e.g physics, geography or philosophy and ethics.
