This is something that only you can work out. Perhaps you should take Biology, Chemisty, Physics and Maths, yet also perhaps something a little different such as a language, or even a shop course. Metal or Wood work.

Some institutions may look more favourably upon your application having studied maths. Physics seems unnecessary though.

No, physics and maths aren't really neccessary (although some universities might view these subjects favourably - it varies). Biology and Chemistry are the important ones.

You can do French, History, Biology and Chemistry and go into Medecine...you dont need Physics and you dont really need to take Maths, although it is favourable.

Yeah and for some reason they love languages. Our teacher told us that the ideal combination for Medecine would be Maths, Biology, Chemistry and French...and i know someone taking Geography, History, Biology and Chemistry...

chemistry is the most important one, you only really have to do biology up to AS, although maths might be useful as chem requires lots of maths at A2
