Hi there!

I think you should take Biology, Chemistry, Maths and a subject of your own choice, maybe a favorite...
You'll need at least Biology for A-Level as its basically the structure of becoming a GP
And btw, if you do want to take 4 subjects for AS, i think you should look at the entry requirements for certain unis (I know Uni sounds a bit to far) but i was told that Universities like a range of subjects being chosen..so maybe Geography, or ?History?
Well its up too you!
Hope i helped! xD

I want to go into medicine too and my best advice is Chemistry, Biology and Maths, and something thats a bit different than the sciences as uni's look for you being able to do a range of things (I took psychology), if not then maybe take something like Further Maths (only if you are really good at it though!) which uni's regard highly. Just remember that you need 3A's at alevel to get into most medicine courses, and trust me I waltz through GCSE on natural ability getting A's left, right and centre, A-level in my opinion is so intense and the work is incredibly hard. Imagine the subject you struggle with most at school, and times that difficulty by about 4. Im not trying to put you off but most people reach their limit with natural intelligence around college time, so make sure you have a back up plan incase. Good luck :)!

It depends on the university you want to go too. Some universities like their candidates to have a wider range of interests and abilities, whereas other universities prefer it if you take another science/maths subject. (This is presuming that you are taking Biology Chemistry and Maths)

I want to go into Medicine as well and I'm taking Bio Chem Maths and probably Physics next year, although I'm not 100% sure yet. 

If you're not bothered about which uni you want to go to I suggest you take a random subject that you really enjoy. As long as you get the good grades, it doesn't really matter which other subject you take. Just make sure that you do a lot of volunteering and work experience so that you know for sure that you want to be a GP and so that the universities can see that you are really taking it seriously.

Good luck choosing :)

Most medicine courses require 3 A's, the most important subject is Biology and Chemistry. The other two A level choices are up to you. It is best to choose something easy and that you would enjoy!

Good luck :)

P.S: Most people go for Maths, Biology, Chemsitry and a 4th random subject.

hi everyone, thanks a lot all the replies were great, i was just wondering if should i do just 3 A-levels (Biology, Chemistry and Maths) instead of 4 because then i would be able to focus on them more and achieve a high grade hopefully, or is it better to have 4??  :)
