I'm in the process of deciding my A-Levels at the moment, and I've pretty much decided on Biology, Chemistry, Maths and English Literature. I want to go on to study medicine at university, so I know that the first three are good choices. However, Physics appears to be a better choice than English Literature, and so I'm not sure whether to take that instead. I'm not bad at physics, but the course outline looks boring to me, and I really enjoy English Literature. Should I take Physics or another subject rather than English Literature? What would universities think about it as an A-Level on an application for medicine?
It won't effect your application at all. In fact taking an essay subject will help you look like a more rounded applicant,
Also you don't need to take 4 A-levels, there isn't any benefit
