GCSE options (pls help guys!)

Hey, I recently picked my GCSE options and I want to pursue a career in medicine, are these good options? I might be able to change them if they aren't good.

- Maths (Top set)
-English Language and Literature
-Triple Science
- Geography
- Comp Sci
- Further Maths
-French

Unfortunately my school is quite small, so has limited GCSE options. So they have less classes and less slots on the timetable. My original idea was to have Geography, History, French, Spanish and Further Maths, but that's impossible because of the allocations. I had to choose Computer Science because of this.

Do you think these options are appropriate for becoming a doctor in the future? I do know that universities tend to look at your GCSE options.

Thanks for any answers πŸ™‚

Oh, and Religious Studies as a half GCSE course, but it's compulsory.

Hi @Sonia334,

Medicine is a competitive course so it is likely that universities will look back at your GCSES, but by looking at your choices I think your options are perfectly fine. By taking further maths and triple sciences, this will prepare you well for sixth form and where I assume you'll most likely take maths and sciences in A-levels as well.

Good luck!

Hi! It is a very good selection of GCSE's and i do all the same as you, expect Further maths and Spanish instead of French!
