Specific GCSE subjects aren't needed for medicine or law. I would suggest choosing subjects that you enjoy and would get a good grade in. For medicine, this includes getting especially good grades in maths and the sciences. Maybe history would be good to take for law as it is an essay based subject?

Choosing relevant subjects applies to A-levels though. For example, for medicine, you have to take Chemistry, and then it is recommended to take biology, maths or physics for your other subjects.

Sciences are needed at GCSE for medicine but those are compulsory. An essay subject e.g history would also be helpful for law

1) There aren't any specific GCSE requirements to become a doctor, but at a level you need Chemistry & usually biology at high levels, so it might be good to take triple science.

To become a doctor GCSE wise UCAS says you need at least seven gcses with at least 5 subjects grade 7 to 9 and English and Maths at at least grade 6 or 5

2) Again, its not really specific gcses but more a levels that count. At a level, it is preferred that you take essay subjects like english, history, politics, languages or even law a level. So, it is probably best to take a language and history but specalise more at a level.


To conclude, nothing specific but it seems like triple science and EBacc subjects like History & a language are probably the best
