Yeah good a-levels, literature would be good for a medicine application and is perhaps more transferable than languages, chill though, you can put anything down for now and change them when you start next september.

Do it all!!!!! Do physics along with chemistry, biology and maths. Winrar combination

Your first three are obviously perfect if you want to become a doctor, and a lot of medicine admissions tutors at uni prefer you to have a creative subject as well, so English or a language will obviously be very good. If you go for English, do Literature, it's preferred by universities.
Talk to your teachers as well, they'll be able to give you an idea regarding what they think you are most likely to do well in. Above all, though, do something you enjoy!

as someone who does German, i'd say go for that, because only the cool people learn german

Chemistry, Biology, Physics and mighty Maths.

do chem and bio for sure, maths cos it looks good, and the forth what you enjoy, becuase you can afford too with the other 3 stong subjects. Maybe german as it shows you're stong accross the board and languages looks great on CVs plus its a life skill for that all too common occurence of being stranded in germany

German is the best subject. I'm not biased at all...
For medicine, Bio, Chem Maths are perfect.
4th wise: I take English Lit and German. For Englit there's a lot of essays and it can be time demanding, whereas for German the essays are much shorter and although it is still a lot of work, it is evenly paced out rather than having mad rushes when there's an essay due in for English. So maybe bare in mind the workload because you'll have to do lots of work experience and extra curriculars to do medicine!
