Hey

I plan on going back to college and do Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics, however I wish to study Medicine and some Universities ask for 3 A Levels and one AS.

I was wondering is it possible for me to do those three subjects and then in my second year do AS Biology?

Thank you

I'm no medic and I know the only compulsory subject is Chemistry, but wouldn't it be better to do Biology to A2?

All universities require A2 chemistry and I think most want A2 biology too. Maybe maths or physics for AS level instead?

Thanks for your informative comments: Well I wouldn't really want to be Maths or Physics at AS, the same with Chemistry.Biology is a good subject in general, but it's required at AS so I think it'd like it that way

But if I do M,C and P would I be able to do AS Biology in the second year?

Basically Chemistry and Biology - you will need these at a level.
Physics and Maths are also 2 good subjects so i would take these 4.

Yes you can but people tend to take biology in thier first year. I was gonna do the same thing but I didn't even need the extra AS for uni.

I think it'd be better to do biology now and then continue it onto A2. Generally you do 4 AS and then drop one so you end up with 3 full alevels and 1 AS; I'd recommend doing 4 because then you're covering your back; extra ucas points are great

I would suggest doing Maths, Chem, Biology and Physics to AS, and then drop Physics/Maths. You want to maximise your chances tbh.

And if you can't bear to drop Maths/Physics, do them all the A2. You'll be glad of not having the extra AS in your second year, trust me.
