everyone i know does bio and chem and while most do maths as a third i know a few people who have gotten into great med schools with something other than maths. when you say "is psychology worth it" do you mean as a 4th? if so, you don't need to do that at all

Good combo, lot of aspiring medics do psychology. Don't need maths for med school (apart from Cambridge where most applicants have 3 stem subjects so you'd need maths physics of further maths there). But definitiely a good choice and doable
