I know it doesn't really matter, but I still want to know.

Neither will benefit you more than the other in getting into Medicine. Pick the one you're more likely to score a higher grade in. :yy:

Whichever you're most likely to get an A/A* in, mate. :P

Although if you don't have any other essay-heavy subjects, history could be useful for solidifying your writing skills.

I'd guess that either would be fine; the grades you score in your GCSEs are more important than the actual subject choice.

Also want to go into medicine and I chose History just because I prefer it to Geography. Just pick whichever one you are better at and/or enjoy more!

History would be better, as you do a whole section on the history of medicine

Surely hat depends on whether you are doing a SHP course or not? OCR B for example.

As has been said, pick the one you will enjoy more. Personally I think if you like learning something grades are a natural consequence! :P

I do GCSE history and we study the progression of public health, medicine and development of surgery. It's helping me put everything into perspective and develop a sense of gratitude to the subject. It could be worth doing it and bringing it up in a interview for Uni
