Hey my name is Sofia and i am a yr 11 student about to take my GCSES in May. I'm looking to pursue a career in medicine as a doctor. I am choosing my A-levels and I'm not sure what to choose. My strong point is biology but i'm crap at maths ( I'm trying to get a 6/7 B/A) and I'm scared wither to choose A-level chemistry, or A-level physics as well as biology. Does anyone know what I should choose and also if religious studies or philosophy seen as an academic subject????
It would also really help if you guys could tell me what you choose and got for a-level
Thanks

There is a million threads on tsr with the same question (a slight exaggeration) theres a whole forum on tsr where you can discuss medicine requirements cnd choosing medical schools.
Taking Chemistry and Biology enables you to apply to the vast majority of UK medical schools. A high proportion of successful candidates take 3 science A levels but neither maths or physics are absolutely required.

If you do biology, chemistry and another subject you can apply to all medical schools except some Cambridge colleges.

RE/philosophy & ethics is a good third choice and counts as an academic subject.

You don't have have to take maths or physics unless you want to. More info here:
