    Best course for year 12? - I'm doing 3 sciences and 2 ext subjects (now in year 11)

    Hi! I'm in year 11 and currently am doing:
    Physics
    Chemistry
    Biology
    Extension 1 English
    Extension 1 Mathematics
    (12 units)

    Doing really good in all three sciences, good in mathematics (better at it than my marks will tell you) and averaging Bs in English (so far).

    I wanna do UMAT and get into medicine, so I will be treating it as a 2unit subject so I'm restricting year 12 to 10 units.

    What's the best mix of subjects for me in HSC?
    2 sciences + 4U maths + Adv. Eng. (10units)
    3 sciences + 2U maths + Adv. Eng. (10units)

    Or any other suggestions based on my performances as mentioned ^

    Thanks

    Also, which two sciences should I keep if I only do 2? I like them all so what's the best pair?

    It should be known that biology is the best taught and managed science at my school. My teacher is really good; one of his students last year was 1st in the state.

    My chemistry and physics teachers are good, like my teachers for the rest of my subjects.

    I'd recommend 4U, it takes up a lot of time but it's fun and rewarding for your atar. I like bio and phys (chem didn't look fun + bad teacher) but imo chem + bio relate the most in content, but chem + phys for scaling if you're interested in that.

    Don't spend too much time studying umat though, can't get into med without the atar!
