    I was only in school for 3 days a week throughout school due to sporting commitments, so would feel I didn't reach my full potential with these results, I am studying biology chemistry economics and German at a level and am likely to be predicted A*A*A*A. Are these academics good enough?

    Even if your grades were slightly better i would recommend doing 3 a-levels, especially if your thinking about dropping one next yr- because its just unnecessary stress. People usually do 4 to decide which subject to drop after AS, so if your certain about medicine just do 3. Also i would recommend doing maths, as quite a few med schools require maths, so it keeps your options open.

    Yes, they are good enough for medicine, but as you know not exceptional and would put you at a significant disadvantage at certain medical schools. Plenty of medical schools however tend to just look at the UKCAT, so get a good score and you will be fine. With regards to a levels, your subject choices are fine, unless you want to go to Cambridge university, but I would think about taking 4- you don't want to drop down to a B in biology or chemistry because you overstretched yourself and you may have more time to pursue volunteering/practice for the UKCAT.
