    I am on track for A*A*A* in chemistry, physics, and maths and an A in EPQ.
    I originally intended to do chemistry at University, however, some other courses are starting to interest me such as:
    Biochemistry
    Medicinal chemistry
    Medicine
    Chemistry with biomedicine

    I chose physics as it is just something I am good at naturally, but I never intended on doing more than just what is used in chemistry after that.

    The entry requirements for all the degrees mentioned at Imperial and Kings are possible with my options, but what are my chances of getting into, let's say, medicine because I enjoy working in the hospice I volunteer at and would love to make a difference in the world, yet a lot of unis require Biology (except for Oxbridge, but I'm nowhere near good enough for that lol)
    Also Queen Mary's and Bristol, Bath.

    Any opinions would be appreciated

    You've missed the medic deadline, and anyway you need work exp- but you've got that, but I would reccomend waiting a bit before deciding- probably best in your case to apply 1st in 2018-19. You can always take Med after your 1st degree though, as there's GEM- biomedicine probably a good shout in that case ( not sure on entry requirements though), any of those would work.
