Hi all, I'm not sure what to do and would like advice. I'm wanting to pursue medicine, I did my highers and got 4As (maths, English, biology and chemistry) and a B in geography in S5, and this year I'm currently doing higher music, adv higher: chemistry, biology and maths. My question is whether I should drop higher music, and just do the 3 advanced? I think music is an easy A for me and I enjoy but I feel as though I could be spending more time on my 3 advanced subjects? However, since I'm lacking an A last year idk if I should just keep going with music... does music even appeal to universities? I'm wanting to apply to Glasgow, Dundee, Aberdeen and another one.
Please guide me cos I'm not sure what to do haha

Read this for some guidance.

Go to the universities you're interested in

If you are happy doing music and think you can manage your advanced highers, I'll say go for it!! You never know, you might get to talk about music at an interview and an extra subject is never any harm
Good luck!!
