Hiiii! So it's time to pick my highers, and I was wondering if anyone could offer me some advice? I'm definitely taking maths, chemistry and human biology. I'd love to take physics, but my school aren't offering three sciences (at the moment anyway...I'm trying to change their mind ). Now, I'm pretty good at english, but it's one of those very subjective subjects, and i'm scared that the exam will go badly and i'll not get an A (or even a B)! My brother, who was really good at english at standard grade level ended up getting a C, and only one medical school even considered him. :/ Plus I don't even like english!! So what I'm really wondering is, do medical schools favour those who have taken higher english - for example, to demonstrate communication skills? (not that essay writing is particularly useful...) I know that it's not neccesary, but would it be an advantage at all? Do you think studying a foriegn language would be more useful? Thank you for reading!!
