    As long as you get a good grade in it, then you should be fine! Medical schools generally only ask for biology and chemistry specifically though some might want physics or maths but that's not a general rule.

    I'd recommend checking out the entry requirements of any medical schools you may be interested in going to just to make sure!

    Oh right lol its calm dont worry

    just so you know those predicted grades dont reflect much. Im in year 12 and my school is going to predict grades based on gcse perfomance which is a complete waste of time.
