Good grades in English, Chemistry, Biology and Maths. The rest is just about grades so you can pick a few which you like and can get high grades in.
Can you link EAL jet set?

Number of high GCSE grades apart from the subjects above is fine.
A levels are much more important and you need the correct grades at first attempt and that will include Biology an Chemistry.

It might not count as much as a GCSE. Its generally a good idea for medicine to have 6-8 good grades, although if you do not then you can apply to schools which place less emphasis on GCSE. What you do need are to get the grades in Chem, Bio and one other first time. Some unis will require English language at grades 4-7. Medicine is a complex application procedure, so it doesnt do you any harm about understanding it and what they look for.

I don't think it will matter as long as you're doing at least 9 GCSEs. You just need to get as high grades as possible everything else. EAL will help your English skills which will in turn help you to become a doctor. Doctors need to be able to communicate efficiently so if you plan on being a doctor in the UK then you'll need as good English as possible.

Universities won't reject you because you did a BTEC as long as you've done at least 9 GCSEs. Many schools only let their students do 9 or 10 GCSEs so having a BTEC won't matter.
