Do vocational subjects like I media count as GCSES and do unis even care about them? In particular for medicine.

Most universities don't look at all your GCSE's. You just need to meet their minimum maths and English requirements.

Sadly, this is not the case for medicine, where many med schools actively score GCSEs to decide who to interview

As long as it’s still a normal GCSE qualification (ie not a BTEC or something) universities that score GCSEs will still score it, so it could have some advantage for medicine if you get an 8/9.

Worth bearing in mind though that many schools score core subjects (english, maths, sciences) + 1 or 2 others, or have minimum requirements in the core subjects, so 9s in drama, music and art say would not make up for a 3 in Maths.
