So I've been looking at the entry requirements for a neurosurgeon and it's 5 A*-As in including English, Maths and all Sciences. I'm not sure I'll be able to obtain an A in Maths and Chemistry, I'm more likely to get a B in both. But I'm predicted As in my other GCSEs- I take 9 GCSES. Triple Science (Physics, Bio, Chem), English,Maths, Geography, Music, Digital Applications, RE. Would I have to resit these in Maths and Chemistry?

I would be surprised if by the point you are applying to neurosurgery specialty training they care about your GCSEs - ecolier not sure if you can ask your neurosurgeon friend next time you see (possibly metaphorically, in coronavirus-land) her or can advise otherwise?

Incidentally neuroscience is a completely distinct field which is not a medical specialty and does not necessarily have any relation to (clinical) medicine. Neuroscience is just the academic study of the brain/nervous system (and mind) using principles of biological science (as opposed to purely psychological approaches).

Neurology is a medical specialty though, and I think there are none on TSR better qualified to advise on that than the person I tagged above
