Hi, I want to apply for medicine but I do not want to do maths for a level. I definitely want to do chemistry and biology (which I know is compulsory to have for medicine) but I am still choosing my 3rd subject. I was thinking of business studies or history as I am getting 8's (A*) in them right now in my GCSE mocks and I really enjoy those subjects. I am leaning more towards business because I enjoy it more than history and because the A level business teacher is better than the history one. Will I be accepted into Birmingham university with a business A level because they said
"General Studies:
Not accepted. Critical Thinking is also not accepted. Other non-standard subjects may not be accepted. Please contact us for advice"

is business studies a non standard A level subject. Id rather do business, biology and chemistry and get AAA than do maths and get AAC

Most medicine schools (including Birmingham) don’t care about the 3rd A level so you are free to do what you enjoy and are most likely to get an A in. There’s nothing wrong with Business Studies
