Is it okay to study a language at A-Level if you want to study Medicine? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi, I'm currently studying for my GCSEs at the moment, and I am very passionate about medicine. Whilst choosing my A-Levels, I had selected Chemistry, Biology and Spanish. Do you guys think I'd still have a chance of getting into Medical school by choosing a foreign language rather than a science?

    As long as you have Biology and Chemistry, your 3rd subject makes absolutely no difference to your application (except for Cambridge which asks for a 3rd science) All unis want is 3 As so if you're confident you'll do well in Spanish, then go for it.
