To be a dermatologist you need to qualify as a doctor first. Beyond the standard maths/English language/science, there aren't any specific GCSEs you need to take. Pick a range of subjects that interest you - languages are always a good shout. Triple science is good but if it's not available then the double award is fine too.

Also, I wouldn't get too fixated on picking a medical specialty at this stage. You're presumably in year 9 at the moment? There's many years to go before you need to make those kind of decisions. Just focus on medicine in general for now

It's great that you're thinking about your future this early. If you really want to be a dermatologist then I'd suggest you pick triple sci as it's literally the same as combined science, the only difference between the two is that triple science has a few topics exclusive to it and you look at specific concepts with a greater depth. Don't stress it too much though as you may end changing your mind in the future.

A Dermatologist is a Doctor so you will need to do Medicine at University. Just ensure you take Chemistry and Biology and whatever else you are good at. It's a long road to becoming a doctor and its not for everyone so a backup plan may help.
