    After A levels, I would like to go on to study medicine. At the moment I will definitely be doing biology & chemistry but I don't know what to choose for my other two options. I have been studying ancient greek for just over a year and I am thinking of taking it as an AS along with bio & chem. Would physics A level be too much work? In your opinion what should I take/what will fit well with biology and chemistry?

    Most medschools don't mind about your 3rd A-level. If you prefer Greek to Physics then study Greek.

    Cambridge is a notable exception where the vast majority will have 3 sciences.

    I'll move your thread to the Medicine forum where you can see a number of threads asking a similar question

    maths i guess. I'm in year 12 doing Bio Chem Maths. Previously I was doing Bio/Chem/History/French but I was advised to just do maths instead. Kinda regret dropping history as I'm not that good at maths.

    Maths, chemistry and biology would most likely be the best options

    I would recommend doing maths. The reason behind this is that maths is much easier to understand and practice and you have good maths teachers whereas you rarely find good physics teachers and the concepts are harder to understand imo.

    Sounds weird but think about which universities you may want to apply to. Some actually put a higher weighting (or at least used to!) on non-science subjects which could be the difference in getting an offer. But I feel much has changed, so it would definitely be worth doing some research into it.
