    Hi, I’m wanting to study Medicine and was wondering about what subjects to take for S6.

    I’m currently in S5 and have just achieved AAAAA in my Higher prelims (Maths, English, Human Biology, Chemistry and French)

    I’ve been told by my teacher that I am required to study 3 advanced highers in S6, but I’m more interested in studying 2 advanced highers and a crash Higher (or two crash highers?)

    Would this be suitable or should I just take 3 advanced highers?

    Some advice would be much appreciated!

    Which subjects would you plan on taking in each option?
    Assuming you want to go to uni in Scotland, either option would be fine, in that (at the right grades) you will meet the minimum entry requirements. If you want to go to an English one, 3 AHs may be a better option, but you should check entry requirements on this. This is all assuming that the subjects you plan on taking are the right ones.
