    I'm a Medical student and if you want to do Medicine you're going to need to pick:

    English
    Maths
    Science (2 or 3 including chemistry - your best bet is Biology and Chemistry)

    It's good to have a few subjects that make you look like an 'all rounded' person, so there's no harm in taking say art or history if they're subjects that you enjoy, but you need science for the Medical route for sure.

    Oh that's perfect then! So from the GCSEs you listed I'd say take any which 1. you enjoy and 2. you feel that you'll do well in, because obviously applying for medicine is about getting the best grades possible good luck
