    Hi, I'm in S3 going into S4 and my subject choices are coming up. I like maths and science and think I want to do something down a medical route like a doctor. I have a rough idea of what subjects I want to take -
    Maths
    English
    Biology
    Chemistry
    Modern Studies
    IT Business
    I'm not 100% sure about IT business and was wondering if anyone has some advice on what I should take.
    Thanks

    I think the best A Levels are definitely..
    1. Chemistry
    2. Biology

    Then 3rd choice either..
    3. Physics, Maths, Further Maths

    Then 4th. You can have a lot of choice with...
    4. English, Modern Studies, etc, anything you want

    Hiya, I'm currently in 5th year and sitting higher maths, english, biology, chemistry and french. Last year I sat maths, english, biology, chemistry, physics, french, geography, and P.E at Nat5 with 7As and a B.

    I found that taking the likes of PE last year was a huge help, as universities don't really care what Nat5s you done; just what you got. So the more easy subjects you have, the better lol.

    If you feel you can, I'd consider taking physics at national 5. Most medicine applicants will have highers at maths, english, and 3 sciences. You don't wanna have to crash higher physics in 5th, trust me that would be hell. The course isn't the easiest, but with hard work and a strength in maths it should be fine.

    Also, medicine is really competetive so any extra-cirriculum activites you can do would help (musical instrument!!)

    Good luck!! (If you've got any more questions about national 5 just ask)

    Thank you so much, physics sounds like a good idea!
