    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 and medicine. 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.

    Its up to you. the required one is Chemistry. plus one other.

    Easy boring physics with lets say a guaranteed A or A* leaving more time to focus on the other v a more interesting Biology? U'd have thought B was more relevant to M.

    Up to you. Just look at the pros and cons then make the choice.

    You can also do an EPQ and if you choose medicine then dont forget you have all the rest of your application to deal with.
