So, I had initially planned on majoring in economics, which is why I took Business, Economics and Sociology for AS/A levels, but now I’ve changed my mind and I really want to go to medical school. Problem is I don’t know whether I’ll be able to get in with the AS/A level courses I chose. Can I still get into Pre-Med in the US? I really don’t know what I can do at this point, but I’m willing to do whatever it takes.

TSR is a UK-based forum, the Medicine forum is for UK medical school queries. We have moved your thread to the International Study forum since you're asking about the US.

(1) If you wanted to ask the equivalent Q for UK med schools, post in https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=5678544

(2) It is unlikely that your A-Levels will be directly transferable to US school systems. Medicine in the US is post-graduate and not under-graduate like the UK. I am sure you'll get someone more knowledgeable about med in the US here.

there are foundation courses for people without science A levels.

Cardiff- AAA for students who have not taken bio or chem
Dundee- AAA with no more than one science subject
Keele- A*AA
Manchester- AAA in three arts and humanities or two arts and humanities with one science
