    As the title suggests really - everyone is telling me I cant and that there’s no point in trying but I’ve looked up uni requirements and many require two sciences including chemistry ( which I do as well as biology) any info or advice would be appreciated

    I don't think you do, but they may prefer a student who offers it to someone who doesn't.

    Yeah you can. I've not seen a medical school ask for A-Level Maths. Just make sure you pick a subject that you can achieve an A or A* in.

    Biology isn't required by some medschools. e.g. (edited!) Bristol.

    I am thinking of taking maths, further maths, chemistry and physics

    Would chemistry possibly help out?
    Thx

    Chemistry is a bare essential. You're putting youself at a disadvantage if you don't do biology as it limits your options, forget fm and/or physics.

    you should really google this stuff, its right there and theres hundredsnof threadsnabout this as well...

    It’s not that i haven’t googled this, but just for reassurance.
    Besides, i still am unsure about what to do in the future unfortunately. So stressful.

    Yes you can. You don’t need maths A-level to get into medicine.
