    Your GCSEs won't have a massive impact on your career, so you don't need to worry too much, but for medicine yeah I'd definitely say Triple Science is a must because it will make it easier to take sciences at A-Level.

    At this stage, keep your options open and pick subjects you're going to enjoy, otherwise you'll just get a bit stressed - and you might change your mind yet! I'm taking Geography and History and I would say that they're really fun, but a big step up and harder than you think they'll be (especially History, oh gosh History...) They're all quite academic but if you're up for it you should be fine

    Good luck!

    Those are probably the "perfect" GCSE options for medicine.. But remember medicine is insanely competitive so if you could get a better grade in a different option but are scared to take it because it's 'soft, go for the one where you'll get the best result and enjoyment!
    whatever you do though , keep triple science!'
