Are these subjects okay to become a doctor? And also what do I need to do?

So for my GCSE’s I chose history geography triple science, media and drama, I have currently A’s in drama history and geography and a b in science but I’m focusing on working on science, I’m starting media next year, also I finish secondary school, should I stay and six form and do biology and chemistry and then med school or go to a college then med school? Thank you!

The key thing is to take 3 A levels including Chemistry and Biology and to get at least AAA in them. It doesn't matter where you do that. Some med schools also expect at least a 6 or 7 in GCSE English Language and may have requirements for GCSE Maths (e.g. at least a 7) if it isn't your 3rd A level.

Certain med schools require high GCSEs (mostly 8s and 9s) but others aren't so bothered.

I think sixth form is a better choice as there will be a better work atmosphere as well as being there for year 11 so familiarity is good too. I think Chemistry Biology and Math would be a good choice but its a bit cliché and you don't need math for some medicine courses so make yourself stick out of the crowd and show a specialist in geography which is still a science

Do you have English and Maths GCSEs as well as they’re expected?
