What compliments Chemistry, Biology and Maths for A-Levels best? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi, I plan on going to a medical school after successfully completing A-levels but I'm not sure what subjects compliments Chemistry, Biology and Maths best. I would preferably do (and in this order) Psychology, Philosophy and Ethics, Sociology and Physics.

    Thanks for taking the time out of your day and reading.

    technically Psychology, but studying all 4 sciences by doing Physics will show you can cope with the immensely tough Medicine course. however, 4 sciences is very tough so Psychology might be better if you can impress on your UKCAT/BMAT

    It doesn’t make a difference what your fourth subject is. Sometimes a science would look good although they’ll already know you’re academic by studying the above subjects. Other times it’s good to do something completely different to help you stand out and show there’s more to you than science.

    I would go for psychology if you would prefer it. Stick with what you enjoy as his will help you achieve good grades and motivate you to study.

    Best of luck with your application for Medicine, it’s hard work but will pay off if it’s what you’d really like to do.

    (from someone who’s applied three times to Medicine and now has offers to start in September!)
