    Honestly, i am close to having a nuclear meltdown right now and it's supposed to be half term. I'm in Year 11 starting to choose a-levels
    Future study: I want to go into Medicine
    I'm definitely going to do: Chemistry, Maths, Biology
    I really want to do a fourth: so A-level Physics or English Lit
    I am equally capable to do well in both, at least at GCSE and as A-Levels are supposed to be a whole other story I am so lost right now.
    I understand and enjoy English lit a bit more but Physics would probably look better to do (medicine been so competitive) and if i did it i know i would put in as much effort as possible.
    What do you think? Anyone doing both or have experience in any of these subjects? Any advice would be a god send right now.
    Thank you.

    Pick the subject you enjoy most. I’ve only been doing Physics for a month but almost half my class dropped it - they all did it because it ‘looked good’ and ‘went well with their other subjects’ but didn’t pick it because they enjoyed it

    doesn't matter and won't make your application more competitive for medicine. a bit of a waste of time that may bring your grades down doing a fourth...

    Pick physics as it is more respected and regarded as one of the most rigorous A levels.
