Hi everyone, I’m just as the stage of selecting my S6 Subjects for next year. This year I’m sitting Maths/English/Physics/Chemistry/Biology and Geography at Higher with the aim of getting 6As and applying for medicine. Is doing Advanced Higher Chemistry, Advanced Higher Physics and Crash Higher PE suitable for next year? Or would I be better doing another AH or a harder crash Higher ahead of potential Medicine offers? Anyone advice would be much appreciated!

That should be perfectly fine as Scottish universities usually ask for either 3 advanced highers or two advanced highers and a higher with no subject requirements for S6 Studies. However English universities tend to prefer 3 advanced highers so if you are wanting to apply to English unis you might be better off doing 3 advanced highers instead. Hope this helps.

Three advanced Highers would be really beneficial for a medicine application. Maths or biology would probably be the best option because they are more likely to be used in the course than PE. Maybe check out some uni websites, some have ‘recommended’ subjects as well as requirements

Hi everyone. I’m currently in 5th Year studying Maths, English, Biology, Chemistry and Physics at Higher with the intention of doing Medicine. I’m at the stage of selecting my subjects for sixth year and I am planning to do Advanced Higher Chemistry, Advanced Higher Physics and Crash Higher PE. Is this suitable for medicine or would I be better doing 3AH or a harder Crash Higher? I’ve also heard that you need AH Biology for medicine and I was wondering if the legitimacy of that? Anyone’s help/advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

I've merged this into your existing thread- please don't keep making duplicates. Thanks

To answer your question about biology though, certainly Glasgow and Edinburgh don't require it (there are only 5 unis in Scotland that do medicine, the others being Dundee, St Andrews and Aberdeen so these can easily be checked with the online entry requirements).
If you want to go to uni in England, you'll need to check the individual unis to see whether they specify subjects, but they usually need 3 AHs.

Hope this helps

Ok thank you very much! Sorry about the duplicates, I’ve only just downloaded student room so I’m not especially familiar with how to use it.

I would think doing AH Biology would be useful for doing medicine. Surely it makes more sense than choosing PE, which is always a waste of time.
