Hi guys!
Currently I am in Year 10, I am wound up whether I should become a go to uni to study computer science or I should go to medical school and become a surgeon.

For A-Levels I feel like i have 2 options to pick to incorporate both in case I change my mind throughout my A-Levels. These are:
-Maths, biology and chemistry.
-Maths, chemistry and computer science.

The things i would like to know are if these options are adequate for going into each of the fields and which one you would say is better to choose.

P.s. I heard most universities only require Maths A-level and not cs.
Thanks in advance!

Maths, bio, chemistry

You don't need CS to do CS at uni - you need maths
You need bio and chem to do medicine (pretty much)

Would you say picking these three are highly challenging?

This should help you decide what you need for medicine:

Not having biology A level will limit the range of medical schools you can apply to, so I think biology, chemistry, and maths would be the better combination. As you say, you don't need computer science A level to get into a computer science degree.
