    I am planning to take up a total of 6 subjects: Math, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, English, and Psychology.
    Could drop out any after AS. Any suggestions?

    Yeah. Don't take 6. Unis aren't even bothered when it's more than 4 so it would just be a waste of time. For medicine you need a science (maths, chem, bio, phys). But I'd recommend 2 sciences. Psychology would be good. But maybe not English. Maths yay, Bio/chem yay but idk physics is not my fave so I'm biased

    Unfortunately, my school requires me to take English.

    But, couldn't I drop out Psychology and English at AS level, and continue with 4 for A levels

    For medicine, you have to take biology and and chemistry and a 3rd subject of your choice. It's a common myth that the 3rd subject has to be maths. No uni has ever stated you need maths, bio and Chem.

    Also, you only need to take 3 a levels to A2. You can do a 4th at AS but most unis don't look at a 4th AS anymore because of the new Linear A level system.

    I took biology, chemistry, history and economics (dropped economics at A2) and ive got 2 offers to study medicine from Plymouth and Brighton and Sussex medical school so you don't have to have maths or more than 3 a levels
