Chemistry can be difficult in the beginning but once you get into it it becomes much easier. Different parts of the course will be more challenging for different people. Some people find the calculations difficult and others find the theory more challenging, it really just depends on you. Its definitely a subject worth doing especially if you are thinking about medicine as you'll have to learn it in college anyway. :))

Im in 6th year and love chemistry and think its great. It is fairly challenging however if you can understand the theory of it it helps a great deal.

hi, i think you should look at the requirements for all the collges that offer medicine, like for example in ucd you dont have to do chemistry. im i sixth year and i find chemistry quite challenging but interesting. you need to be quite good at math and just general interpretation. good luck!

as @lazzybenetton said, chemistry isn't a requirement in most colleges! that being said, i love chemistry. it's challenging at first but once you understand, its pretty straightforward and exam questions repeat regularly. for me, the hardest part of the course was organic chem, but after doing questions it's honestly fine

Don't go near Medicine if you do not have Chemistry.

At first chemistry seems like its impossible but after a couple weeks and the right teacher you can get a pretty good grasp of it and can be manageable.
