    Exclamation Can these subjects get me a 90+ atar?

    Hi I am currently a year 10 student and senior subject selection is happening very soon. My current goal is to hopefully get into medicine in uni, i know it is hard and so I was wondering if these subjects will get me a substantial atar. I am thinking of picking:
    Advanced English
    Advanced Math
    Chemistry
    Biology
    Ancient History
    Music 1

    other interests
    modern history
    society and culture
    french beginners
    ext eng

    I am willing to work hard and have a good work ethic. Is a 90+ atar achievable without doing any extension subjects? I was thinking of picking extension english since i have done well in english and am in one of the top classes in my year. But I don't think I'm cut for it according to a presentation the english department did on subject selection. Also what are some other good foundational subjects for studying medicine? Thanks

    Yes those subjects can get you an ATAR of 90+.

    Physics?

    Try out extension english, you can always drop it later on.

    If you are good at mathematics, then I'd recommend that you do 3 unit mathematics.
