    GCSE's aren't something that is really looked upon when applying to university. The most they look ast is having 7 A* to C grade GCSE and must have a B or higher in both Mathematics and English GCSE.

    You don't need to worry about what subjects you do for GCSE.

    So yeah they're good GCSE's to apply to a top university, just get good grades in them!

    Of course, just make sure you get a B or higher.

    Here's a few tips: Practise your writing skills, reading also helps build your vocabulary. I found it really useful to read the newspaper daily and analysing them.

    You can always use the TSR Study Resources, pretty helpful revision material on there. Also there is a very useful Study Planner on TSR which you may use, if you find that timetables are something you don't stick to then make a list of things to do per day/week and tick it off as you go along.

    Hope this helps. Good luck!
