    yes, biology n chemistry are a must for medicine, i think for the other two it doesnt really matter what you take, but i would consider taking maths.

    No medical school wants maths. Only take it if you want to!

    I would have chosen Chemistry, Biology, Maths and History if I had decided to do medicine.

    You don't have to take Maths and two sciences. Most requirements are Chemistry and one other science (most people tend to take Biology). If you enjoy Maths and think you'll do well then take it. But if not, then do something you think you'll actually enjoy.

    They will not look down on you for not taking maths or all the sciences, and in some cases they even prefer if you do a subject out of the science ones!

    they will look for another rigorously academic subject, a lot of applicants take Maths, or physics, but theres no rule, i took english and psychology, and just had an interview at liverpool medical school. make sure its something you can do, id say above all else, you dont want to risk failing or else your life will be much harder when you apply and re-sits and everything. and its worth bearing in mind that for BMAT there are physics and maths questions, but i wouldnt pick your subjects based on that. good luck

    Some unis want subjects that contrast with the sciences (so anything apart from science and maths really), but then again, it sometimes seems like everyone on my course did a maths a-level (I didn't ). depends on the unis you're applying to really, but as long as you got the bio and chem, and your other subjects are solid, respected ones don't think it matters. Also, if you do something different, it draws you out from the crowd, and makes you seem more interesting.

    English Literature, Geography, History, Art, Latin, French etc. The kinds of subjects that have long history and are very well respected other than those that just cool and trendy for now.
