The best advice I can offer to you, as an LLB undergrad. is this:
Many institutions don't like you to have Law at A-level (which I think is stupid). I took A-level Law, along with History and Politics. Now, Science shows the logic behind your thinking, as does Mathematics (Lord Mckay was a mathmetician before he took his bar entrance exams) so maybe this would be worth consdering?
You need to have at least ONE humanities based subject if you want to study Law ( I personally recommend it). This can History, Sociology, English, Politics or indeed, Law.
As for Medicine, I'm not sure. Maths and the three Sciences for sure. Stay away from humanities...they don't realy care for Medicine undergrads. who like to ramble about the philosophy of life, I suspect...
Best of luck in your studies, and see you at the top!

As long as you've got bio and chem, your other subjects are pretty much irrelevant, unless you want to go to one of 8 Cambridge colleges. As others have said, it is vitally important at this stage for you to get some work experience in both professions, and once you've picked one start doing the necessary extra-curriculars/voluteering that you'll need for a competitive application.

ok thank you everyone. I think I will probably end up doing Biology, Chemistry, History and English Lit (dropping Lit when A2 crops up).
Thank you for all the comments, it has really helped; and good luck for everyone with exams coming up
