    I am in year 13 and have applied to medicine. I took the same subjects last year but maths instead of physics and I dropped English. There is a lot of coursework right before exams in English which may take up a lot of your time and I found it difficult to juggle the different revision methods of science vs English. Plus, physics will help you with the BMAT if you decide to take it. Ultimately though you need 3As so choose the subjects that these grades are most likely with! X

    Drop Physics. It's a killer haha. No actually, drop whatever you find boring or less interesting or drop what you don't get as good grades in.
