    So I don't think I did too well with my as exams which isn't the end of the world because they don't count towards anything but I'm going to get pretty low predicted grades. As of now they are:
    Biology: A Chemistry: B Maths: A Psychology: A
    The thing about Chemistry is that usually hate it with a passion and it makes me lose my will to live. But we've started A2 material and I'm actually enjoying it. The issue with it is that I find it so boring and uninteresting my brain just won't hold the information but if I really tried, I know I could get an A- but I don't know whether I can be arsed. On the other hand, it's only for 1 more year.

    So I'm thinking of dropping it and continuing on with the other 3 and doing a psychology degree.

    Another thing is when picking universities for Medicine, is aiming pretty low but I think if I was to do psychology I could go to a better university? And if I didn't do chemistry a level I think I could get A*s in Psychology and Biology because at the moment chemistry drains all my energy and go to a really good university.

    Medicine is something I've always wanted to do and I'm very interested in but its becoming less and less possible because of my disinterest in Chemistry. And I find all my other alevels pretty interesting, especially psychology which is something that comes pretty effortlessly to me and I find it very interesting.

    What's my best option?
    Btw, in my gcses I got 1A*, 9As and 2Bs so I don't think I'm suitable for psychology at Oxbridge even if I got good alevels but I think they should be good enough for most universities
