for medicine in general, you have to do maths, biology and chemistry, and I see you already have that, so you can essentially pick any subjects that you like.
in terms of easiness, geography, re and media are often considered easy, but for medicine you have to have very high grades, so pick what you are best at so that you can be sure you'll get those high grades.

Your compulsory subjects are the ones needed for medicine. Pick any 3 that you are good at and really enjoy. That way you will get the best grades.

ooh, environmental management is a gcse I've never seen before so I'm not too sure about that :0
I would just say pick anything that you are good at or find easy;everyone finds different things easy, if you do that, then you will ensure yourself top grades, which will make it easier to get into med school. good luck!

What can you choose from?

Tbh, they won't matter - pick subjects you enjoy. Check the GCSE specification for content.

I'd say perhaps Psychology, ICT and one other subject you'd enjoy (as in you're picking it because you love it, not for the requirement to become a gynaecologist.) From what I've heard, GCSE subjects don't matter unless you're looking forward to picking these subjects for A level; Moreover, I have heard that rather than looking at what GCSE subjects you're taking - they look at the grades you achieve by the end.

Anyhow, picking subjects you'd enjoy rather than for an occupation would boost your motivation for studying these subjects by a whole lot!
Good luck with your subject choices!

I would look at the GCSE specifications - if you enjoy what you are studying you are more likely to get good grades.
