I want to study medicine at Southampton, and I will soon be picking my A-Levels (Currently in year 11, finishing GCSEs this year). Aside from Biology and Chemistry (the A-Levels that are compulsory for Southampton's Med School), which A-Levels do you recommend to give me the best chances and should I do an EPQ?

P.s. not sure if it affects anything but at GCSE, I'm taking:
Triple Science (AQA)
Spanish (AQA)
Geography (AQA)
Maths (Edexcel)
Religious Studies (OCR)
English Lang. and Lit. (AQA)

I'd warn against taking Spanish A-level! If you have good English Lit teachers take that instead or Maths. I so regret not taking maths!! I got a 9 in my GCSE Spanish and I'm currently in year 13 doing bio, chemistry and Spanish looking to study medicine in uni next year (hopefully!). I thought spanish would be easy and fun its really NOT, please save yourself the work load and take something that's a lot easier!

I did Maths, Bio and Chem and I think maths definitely helps with Chemistry because Chem has topics containing exponentials and logs

you should do the one you think is most likely to get you the best grade.
As long as you do biology and chemistry Alevels you can go anywhere for medicine except Cambridge. If you really want to go there do physics or maths.
