Yes those a levels are fine for medicine. But doing four a levels is never recommended. No med school want more than three a levels and the requirement for medicine is usually AAA so AAA will always look better than AABB.
Here’s the list of a level subject requirement for each med school:

Well you could always do biology chemistry and film studies instead? But if you want to do four a levels, you can do but you need to work really hard and make sure you meet the grades

:yep: But please note that you won’t be able to apply to some colleges at Cambridge because they require maths a level with biology and chemistry but the rest of the med schools don’t require maths a level so you’ll be fine

You can do that and I did the same myself. In fact, if your college is like mine, they'll spend every opportunity they have to tell you to consider dropping a subject. However I'd suggest you only drop a subject if you yourself are sure that you should stop it and not simply on the advice of others.

I'll then go with 4 subjects and drop one of them if I wasn't confident.. thank you for helping!
