I'm currently doing 4 A Levels: biology, chemistry, mathematics and German and they're going okay at the moment but I feel like I should drop one of them (I want to study medicine at university and I only need 3 a levels). I would have to drop either German or Mathematics (universities don't care about the third option as long as I have chemistry and biology) and I really need help deciding which one to drop so could anyone (preferable with experience doing German or Maths or both at A Level) help me decide?

Drop the German. Mathematics, Biology and Chemistry is a very strong subject combination especially so for medicine. You'll be giving your application a much stronger base.
Hope this helps.

Drop German, the other three are a strong set of a levels for medicine as mentioned above.

Why don't you want to do 4? Its absolutely not needed and probably not recommended, and a medicine application in itself is a lot of work that you have still to come, but if you're doing ok its not compulsory.

I am very pro doing languages in school - it is such a useful life skill and its much much harder to try to pick it up later in life. However, maths will a) to a small extent help with chemistry b) to a small extent help with the BMAT, if you sit it c) is a very very useful A-level if you change your mind and decide you don't want to do medicine.
