    I would really look forward to a career in Medicine or a degree in Chemistry in the future, but currently I'm in Year 9 and we have to choose our options. I'm looking to do:
    Triple Science
    History
    Art
    Computing or French

    but i can't seem to choose the fourth option between French or Computing. I prefer Computing as I find it really interesting but the reason I'm struggling to pick it over french is because many teachers have told me Med Schools and Universities prefer a language. So which subject would be better for my future, and would me picking Computing over French effect it in any way.

    Only one med schools requires a language and that's UCL. That is the ONLY one. So if you don't care about going there then do computing if you think you can get a good grade.

    For medicine or any subject really ( outside English,maths and science) it doesn't matter which subject you do, more the grade you get at GCSE.

    I hear art GCSE is hell
