I'm in year 11 wanting to do medicine.
I hated science for most of my life until the beginning of year 11. I never bothered with it and it was always the subject I pushed aside. However from the beginning of the lesson science has really grew on me.
In my summer year 10 mocks, my science grade was a 4-4 (combined science). My best subject is maths and I would usually only get marks in the maths questions.
Now I'm at 6-6 due to my physics grade lowering it slightly. Though not the best, this improvement in a short span of time motivates me to pursue my dream of becoming a doctor.
I have lacked drive before but now I'm working hard to achieve a 8-8 in my next science exams.
Would biology and chemistry A levels be too ambitious for me? (alongside one easier subject like sociology)?

If you enjoy science then I would definitely say go for medicine! Biology and chemistry are hands down one of the hardest Alevels but if you achieve the grades of 8 (by revising hard and doing lots of past papers) then it definitely is not too ambitious and you may actually really end up enjoying the Alevels. Btw choose the third subject as psychology as it is for sure easier than sociology, socio is very hard in terms of essays and understanding the traditional content but psychology is just more easier to understand. Im currently in year13 doing bio, psych and socio

I agree very much with lyca.zai but you may want to check the medical schools that you might want to apply to for their entry requirements. Many schools basically require 3 science A levels (including maths), so you may want to take maths as your third if you can.
