    I’d say they’re both equal, so choose the one you’ll get a better grade in

    Neither is more useful or valued for medicine... but if you're interested in law you can go for history. worth noting however that is you take one of geography / history at GCSE you can always take the other at A-Level without needing the GCSE, because you essentially learn from scratch (e.g. you might not learn about the same historical events in A-level like in GCSE).

    Go for the one you enjoy more. I chose geography and it was a hell of a lot of fun for me personally, even though i was getting top marks in both in year 9.

    You aren't narrowing down any choices at GCSE. The only exception would be languages, which you need at GCSE to take at A-level (unless you are already fluent in it).
