I have received my option form for S6 and i am really stuck. I’m hoping to apply for medicine/ biomedical science so this is what I’m planning so far: AH biology and maths, higher chemistry. I need to take one more subject but the subjects I was hoping to take (either geography or psychology) are impossible to take due to the way the blocked subjects are. The only subjects I can/ am willing to take is either: AH history, higher politics or business as the blocks are awful. Do you think I should take 3 AH and H chem? ( I am also crashing higher chemistry) or politics over history? Any advice would be really appreciated!!!

i guess it would depend on what you did in s5 for me I did 5 highers in s5 ( bio,chem,maths,french,english) and achieved A's. In s6 i did adv chem, adv bio and higher psychology. In my experience of applying to medicine ( offers from dundee, edi and aberdeen) you don't actually need 3 AH to get in. I would say especially if you are crashing chemistry then there is no need to do more than your BIo , maths and higher chem. People that I know who tried to do 3AH or 4 subjects didn't end up taking exams in them all so if you don't need the grades then i would just focus on what you need for the courses and what you think you will enjoy. hope that helps. you can always double check with the unis beforehand so you dont get dissapointed in the application stage.
