Honestly I think the fact that you're doing 4 science subjects should be fine regardless of what they are as long as they include Biology and Chemistry. However I reckon if you had to pick one, I would pick the first combination.
Hope this helps.

Both will be fine. Cambridge is the only medical school where 3 science/maths A-levels are a distinct advantage.

Yes. If you take your second option that will be just as good for Cambridge. They state their requirements as:


A Levels in Chemistry and one of Biology, Physics, Mathematics.

Most applicants have at least three science/mathematics A Levels and some Colleges require this and/or particular subjects. See College websites for details.

Please note that in the past three admissions rounds, 98 per cent*of applicants for Medicine (A100) offered three or more science/mathematics*A Levels and, of these, 31 per cent*were successful in obtaining a place. Of the 2 per cent*of applicants who offered only two science/mathematics A Levels, 8% were successful in gaining a place.

Thanks for clearing that up for me. I always thought physics was stronger as it was another science.

The effect would be marginal. Take the subjects in which you will excel.
