To be quite honest, what you do at GCSE does not really affect university options and courses. However, what you've chosen looks good

As long as you're doing triple or double science, your GCSE choice is absolutely irrelevant. As long as you can get good grades, you're fine.

gcse choices don't particularly make a difference, but id say triple science is very important, as you will probably need to do at least biology and chemistry at a level.

i do both history and re and love them! they're really good subjects, and many of my friends enjoy geography too.
just be weary about taking three humanities as you may find it a lot of essay writing, and if your skills lie in the sciences, this may not be ideal for you! if you love writing essays etc go for it !
my advice would possibly be to change one of them to a language so you end up with two humanities and two languages? i do french and spanish, and love spanish (I'm going to do it at a level)

id also give some advice about art that it is quite a heavy workload, but if you enjoy it then that shouldn't be too bad, but as long as you're good at it it shouldn't be a problem, but i wouldn't just throw it in as an extra if you weren't that keen!

hope this helps

I would definitely take both Spanish and German as GCSE languages are very easy. Triple Science is really important for dentistry and I would recommend you pick either Geography OR history as even at GCSE it's a heavy work load, especially if you're thinking of doing art. The coursework for that is absolutely horrific.

All you need is core subjects. In college You need to do Chemistry and Biology for most unis, maths is not required but is good.
