Oh yeah dr_carter, is it really true that medical schools take less than AAB? Some universities say they have a standard offer, while in reality the vast majority of applicants have at least two grades higher than that. The people who go for medicine usually have straight A's at AS; it's certainly the case for everyone I know. Again...doing four AS's and 3 A levels is by no means a disadvantage, but doing more just gives you that extra edge. I know Imperial can be kind when they make offers to people doing 4 full A levels too, unlike the ones doing 3, who always end up getting harsh ones!
If you are going to do 5 AS, and do a full A level in a year (I'm assuming they let you combine your AS Maths and AS Further Maths ) it'll look really good, because you'll have four 4 full A-levels at the end. Obviously Chemistry is necessary, and Biology is "very desirable" and Maths is always good. Psychology is good too, but if you feel another subject would look good, something like Philosophy and Ethics ( Religious Studies) is good too. I'm sure it's respected by universities as a good Humanities subject. It is by no means easy; there is a lot of essay writing and reading to do, but you will learn a lot of useful skills and theories which would help a lot in a profession like Medicince. It also shows that you're a well rounded person who has a good understanding of human nature.
