    So I am in my first year of A levels and am currently studying Chemistry Physics and maths, and have become interested in doing medicine. I have started doing EPQ research on medicine and I now realize how much I love biology. It would be possible to switch as I am not too far into the course, as some people have switched. All the degrees I'm interested in don't require physics and say they prefer biology. I chose physics because for me it's easy, but now I'm just bored of the lessons because it the same process - learn a bit then do 40 mins of maths. What should I do?

    I feel all I do is maths and I CRAVE some content, the inner scientist in me needs it.

    If biology is a subject your interested in then definitely switch, it will also help with applying to uni/ personal statement if your talking about a subject your passionate about. Most universities have an unspoken rule that they prefer medical/ science students to have chemistry, which you do so you will still be in a great position for your degree!
