Hi, I'm in year 9 and I'm choosing my GCSE options right now. I plan to be a GP or doctor of some kind, so I definitely would like to go down the medicine route. I'm struggling to choosing my final option.At the moment, I've chosen :- Add Maths-Chinese-Triple Science-Geography-_________I need one more but I don't know if i need a technology or creative art or if taking another humanities subject will help. For the final subject, I'm torn between Drama, Music, Food Tech or Philosophy and Ethics. I also would like to know which of these are easier to pass, less stressful and fun. Will not taking a subject from a curriculum area limit me in any way? Do universities want specific GCSEs? Thank you, any advice appreciated

Hey! i would recommend taking a subject that you enjoy for your final one, because let's be honest: gcses aren't THAT important. Also, i reckon that you've already got all the ones you need to go into medicine under your belt. Good luck!

Take what you will enjoy most.
Your GCSE's aren't that important as to what you choose. What you choose at A-level will matter more

What's most important for medicine is chemistry and biology A levels, and a third science/maths A level would be useful.

Your GCSE options are of little to no importance, especially considering the list you gave, so just pick whatever you enjoy most.
