don’t know if i should drop???

im in year 12 and doing bio chem maths and french currently and i am going to apply for medicine.
but i really am not enjoying maths as much as i thought i would.
i would like to apply to universities like oxford, kcl, uni of edinburgh but i don’t know if dropping maths and having french as my third will skew my chances of gaining admission.
any advice would be great thanks :smile:

check the requirements on their individual websites but just replying now to say Newcastle could be a good option if you drop Maths but score highly in your UCAT.
For Edinburgh if you are rUK then you’ll need a top UCAT score.

I'm not sure about those unis but in like general as long as u do bio n chem ur good. So dropping out of maths is fine. Ik two ppl who do bio, chem and psychology n r applying for medicine w it. French will definitely give u that extra push n help u shine when the uni ppl r taking admissions in!
