    There isn't a subject called "medicine" in A-Levels if I think this is what you are asking. If you want to do Medicine at Uni, then picking Biology and Chemistry at A-Levels (plus one other subject) would be ideal.

    As long as it's not General Studies or a foreign language that you are native in, it can be anything you like. I personally chose AS Physics (which I dropped) and A2 Maths - which is a popular combination. But some people do IT, Media studies, Art etc. As long as you get AAA you'll meet the entry requirements (for most / all med schools).

    Anything but not General Studies or critical thinking because they’re not seen as important a levels. Most universities prefer maths at a level.

    I dont think there is a subject called 'medicine' but some sixth forms have enrichment programmes in medicine which are really useful, one sixth form that i know for sure has this is LAE 😊

    Biology, Chemistry and Maths is the standard A Level combination for Medicine.

    Hi there!

    There's no 'Medicine' A-Level - most UK med schools require Biology, Chemistry and one other academic subject at A-Level.

    You can find out more about which med schools require which subjects on our What A-Levels do I need to be a doctor? page.

    Hope this helps!

    Maths seems to be a popular choice. Otherwise, another 'facilitating' subject e.g. English Literature. General Studies/Critical Thinking are excluded from all (I think) medicine offers so don't pick either of these!
