It's useful and a very large number of applicants will have it, but it's not necessary (although some unis ask for the first subject to be one of maths, physics and other subjects they specify).
Naa I'm in my first year at uni As long as you have chem and bio you could pick economics, the only thing is that's very maths based and if you hate it then may not be the best of subjects for you. But ultimately for medicine your third subject should be something you'll get a good grade in because it's a very tough subject to get in for and grades are important.

That's crazy good, I'm assuming you've got an impressive set of GCSE Results... what's the biggest piece of advice you can give me to help persue my career choice? And what are preffered revision methods, I'm so scared... and I've been wanting to go into medicine since I was like a little girl.... sorry if I'm bothering you, ik you have better things to do then speak to a helpless year 11 student, but i appreciate it x

tbh the most impressive thing about my GCSE results is that I have 16 of them (because my school was mad at the time haha). They're fairly decent though
I would say get yourself some work experience, make sure it is what you want to do (and also useful for personal statement use). And use the medicine forum, it has so much amazing advice in there!
Revision methods work differently for everyone...for instance my dad was perfectly capable of reading the textbook once and it would be in his head whereas if I wanted to do that I'd have to write the whole textbook out (I usually prefer writing everything on flashcards in more sensible sized chunks though)! You've got time though so you can experiment a bit and find out what works for you. Usually something active is better (eg. writing it out, answering questions on the material etc.) so you're not just pretending to yourself you're revising.
You're welcome Possibly should go make some dinner (downside of being a uni student) but I'd rather be on TSR haha

Many at my school, some had more if they'd done extra languages or whatever! Then again, I only did 11 in year 11 so not such a large load by then (we did 2 in year 9, 3 in year 10)
The other interesting thing is 3 are in maths based subjects...the obvious GCSE maths, then statistics and Additional Maths (which may not technically be a GCSE, but I count it nonetheless)

16! So you smart smart, girl I'm tryna be like you for 2020, haha x

I've seen the medicine forum andit's been the best motivation I've seen, the students are so commited and everyone on there is like a familyy...

I like mindmaps and using past papers, however I found for the new GCSE, there is not much material available, putting me at a disadvantage. Do you know any good past paper websites?

Is it initimidating going to university, you must be surrounded by so many smart indivdiuals

We weren't given much of a choice, I could have only done 15, but the last one was something I very much enjoyed and was probably my most useful qualification tbh
Glad to hear it
That's the unfortunate thing about being on a relatively new spec, two of my A levels last year we were the first year which does make things harder but you have to remember everyone else is in the same position! In terms of websites, it would be remiss of me not to mention TSR's bank: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/g/past-papers There's not loads on there, but everything helps! Also physics and maths tutor is good for many subjects, especially if you want questions by topic. If there's topics on the old spec as well you can always use old GCSE questions, especially for things like maths and science (although be aware the style has changed for new GCSEs, it still tests knowledge!) And obviously the exam board websites are good too
I wouldn't say it is, especially not on a day to day basis. You do always get the geniuses who just get everything straight off which can be off-putting and I do remember one particular conversation with my friends where it turned out I got the lowest A level results (and mine are by no means low!) which was slightly like woah how is everyone here so clever but ultimately it's more about that everyone wants to learn and is interested in their subject than being competitive in any way!
