What do you think are the best placements to try to get? And the ones to avoid? Could you tell me why?

This is entirely subjective. Some people will know what specialty they want to go into and will prioritise accordingly, others will be less certain and just want a generally well-rounded programme. Some might want lots of surgery, others might want to minimise surgical jobs and want lots of medicine.

All programmes have to cover a certain amount of medical and surgical jobs, but some will be heavier on one side than the other. You are usually not allowed to repeat a specialty (apart from gen med/gen surg) in F2 that you have done in F1.

Gen med will almost always be busy, quite a lot of surgical jobs will be too (more variable between hospitals). Some things like Paeds and O&G will be much more strenuous as an F2 than F1, as you will be on the SHO on-call rota, but this will also mean that you'd get more experience. A&E is always going to be hard work, and will involve a lot of shift work, but personally I think it's one of the most valuable rotations to do. GP is mostly quite relaxed, and obviously good if you're interested in GP, but often unbanded.

Really there aren't any that are universally great or universally awful, it's just what your preferences are.
