    In my school it is compulsory to do 4 a levels. Im doing bio chem and maths and psychology but i drop psychology cause it was a bit too much and business was the onlyone in the block. So i've done business for quite sometime and i've been doing research and found out it was soft after finding the subject easy . So i was wondering would did this hinder my chances of getting into medicine compared to doing psychology.

    Your OP closing question was would it hinder you. To which the answer is No.

    Your offer, should you get one, will be for 3 A-levels.

    As far as I know, both Business and Psychology are soft. However, I think that for Trinity College (and many others) only require you to have two facilitating subject, let alone three or four.

    Only about 3% of successful Medicine applicants to Cambridge don't have 3 sciences. Trinity, and others, require 3 sciences.
