Hi, I’m 13 years old and I have to pick my GCSE’s that are due to be chosen TOMORROW. I already know what I want to be in the future , and I’ve spoken to a few people , but I want to chose the best options.
I’ve already chosen 2 of my gcse’s which are double Health & Social. I only have one more GCSE to pick. And I’m not sure what would be best for me to have a gcse to do medicine .
I’ve been considering choosing Triple Science Award, because I know it helps with medicine and science work (obviously) , but would religious education be better to choose instead? I know it would help me as well because religious studies help with blood transfusions , abortions and all that which my teacher has told me helps with getting a nursing degree, or in medicine.
Also I know that if I’d choose triple science I’d have to stay after school an extra hour for the lesson . Which doesn’t sound great to me .
I’ve also been considering choosing history because I like it , but I dont know if it would benefit me in my desired job.
• Is triple science more beneficial to being a nurse rather than religious studies?
• Do I need A levels in science to do medicine?

Definitely science, in particular biology. Psychology and or sociology would be good options too, but I'd say biology is a must. One of the uni's I'm applying to requires a GCSE science in addition to the other standard entry requirements for a nursing degree. Look at the entry requirements at different universities that you might apply to, that will give you a good idea of what subjects they'll be looking for.Last edited by SmilingWombat; 21-02-2018 at 10:32.
