I want to do medicine at uni I heard somewhere that unis don't like one dimensional students who just do maths and 3 sciences for A level and on the contrary like 2 science, maths and a humanities subject like English.
I like English because it tells me a lot about a person by how they write/speak etc.
It is out of Physics and English and I am doing olympiad for it as well, and I thought this is kinda ineteresting.
I am really conflicted about this choice?

I was in your dilemma the day before I enrolled into college, completely stuck between English Literature and Physics (I was set on Maths, Biology and Chemistry) .
I considered doing five but I was then told that my college don't recommend it.
Even though I got higher marks in Physics in GCSE, I chose Literature because I wanted a little more variety in what I'm doing. Half way through my AS year now, I absolutely love my combination of options
One of the poets I'm studying right now was also somewhat a scientist, and some of his poems talk about the dangers and influence of science on society. That throws everything I do in my science lessons into a social and political context, which is quite a mind blowing experience.
Regarding medicine, I'm not so sure what the best combination would be, but I think they'd like a more well rounded person, that's what they told my sister when she applied anyway.
I've probably waffled loads but I hope this helps!
PM me if you want to know more about my combination of AS Levels

There's nothing wrong with doing 5.
