I've heard of a lot of people who do biomed, neurosci, or something that's completely different from medicine, what exactly should I go for?

Hi I've moved your thread to the medicine forum

Bear in mind you don't have to add a 5th choice, and if you are 100% positive with your choice of medicine as a career and fully committed to it, then if you did fail to get an offer from your 4 choices you would be better off applying to medicine through clearing or taking a gap year and reapplying, than starting another degree you didn't want to do in order to try and continue to medicine in the future.

Hi, thanks so much! I appreciate the advice, I've been speaking to people about how competitive GEM will be too, so it's an interesting decision to have to make, I think my parents want me to keep a 5th choice for something different that isn't wholly medicine related - think my personal statement might be the only issue

Most admissions tutors will understand your situation so it wouldn’t cause too many problems. Some universities might ask for a separate ps if you apply with a medical one.

Many biomedical sciences courses and some related bioscience subjects often accept a medicine personal statement without prejudice. Some may require you to write an additional separate statement to send to them. You will need to check the webpages for those courses and if nothing is stated, I would recommend contacting them to confirm.
