It's great that you've had a long chat with your parents and they're supportive of a possible change in subject area. You're so right in thinking that it's maybe not the best idea to pursue medicine at university if you're not 100% into it... University is a huge investment, especially if you're studying for 7 years!
Resitting your A-Levels can feel daunting, however at this stage if you feel like making a change in your career path it might be the best option for you. Have you ever spoken to a careers advisor at your sixth form/college? These advisors will ask what your interests are, what you enjoy studying most etc, and can tell you some career prospects from the info you give them.
It's important to study something you really enjoy whilst at university, it's a huge decision to make and will craft the path of your future, so you want to feel comfortable with whatever subject you choose to study. Once you've narrowed your chosen subject areas down, you should then go and visit as many university open days as possible to really get a feel for each campus, course facilities, academics, student support services and more. This will give you a very good idea of what is right for you.
Whilst I was at sixth form I had such a broad idea of what I wanted to study at uni (Fine Art, Geology or Maths!!!), and I went to each three subject talks at every open day I went to. I got a vibe for each of the courses at each university and made my decision based on what I had taken away from the open days I'd visited.
I hope this helps,

...I have been studying medicine up till now and even though I do not like it,
So I talked to my family about repeating my A level and I had a long conversation with them which ended with them asking me to decide which field I want to pursue. I have been studying medicine up till now and even though I do not like it, I feel like switching to a completely different field so late might be risky. Any suggestions on what I should do?
More info plz...
