    To begin with, don't worry about your GCSE's. If you do your research into Universities, then you'll find a lot that don't even look at your GCSE results. But, from my time in sixth form, taking 4 subjects was a lot. And taking Biology and Chemistry as well is even worse for your workload. Personally, I know how useful Maths can be for Medicine (especially with Statistics). But obviously choosing subjects that you enjoy is also really important. So, personally if I was you, I would 100% drop a subject as Biology in essence can be considered as the hardest science for some due to the amount of work. Also, if you are worried stil about your GCSE results, then just try to get a really good score for UKCAT and try getting volunteering or work experience really early on for your personal statement.
