    Hello.
    I am in Y9 and am picking my GCSEs.
    I want to be either a:
    Lawyer
    Astrophysicist
    Doctor (GP)
    Computer Scientist

    I want to pick:
    Computer science
    Geography
    Triple science (physics, chemistry and biology)
    Further Maths
    Spanish

    but I am unsure about whether these choices will be able to help me get these possible jobs.

    Lawyer: No specific GCSES needed but English Lit at A level is preferred.
    Astrophysicist: A level Physics and Maths needed, so you should do triple science if you choose to have A level physics but double science is enough.
    Doctor: you need Chemistry and Biology A level, again double science is fine but triple will prepare you more for A level.
    Computer Scientist: Maths is needed at A level so if you want to be more prepared for A level Maths ( or further maths should you choose to pick it) then you should consider doing GCSE further maths.
