Music or maths at A2?

I am definitely doing Chemistry and Biology at A2 but I don’t know which to pick for my third subject.

I enjoy music and I know that I can get a good result from it, on the other hand I really don’t enjoy maths.

I know that some medical schools prefer you to have one over the other, which do you think I should pick and why?

You enjoy music and do well in it.  Biology and Chemistry are very hard subjects at A level really very challenging and there is plenty of maths elements n those two subjects. 

maths is one of the hardest and if you don’t like it then Music is your answer.

Hi An,

Thank you for your question. Popular choices are Physics or Maths – but most medical schools don’t specify what your third A-Level should be, as long as it’s an ‘academic’ subject. You can see which A-Levels med schools require here:

Hope this helps! 🙂
