    Hey

    I am going into year 12 this september and currently have choose to study:
    chemistry
    biology
    history
    physics
    general studies (compulsary)
    extended project (compulsary)

    My problem is im not surre whether to take physics or english lit. If i take physics i think three sciences will be difficult. However if i do english lit then having two humanities might be seen as i cant make my mind up between science and humaities.

    So can any dental hopefuls or dental students advise me on which to take. Thanks

    In my opinion I would take physics because 2 sciences and 2 humanities would mean a lot more work where as i find the sciences seem to fit together better if that makes sense I took chem bio history and english this year which i found really difficult! If youre still unsure maybe you could email a university for advice?

    3 Sciences is no walk in the park though; I took Maths, Chemistry and Biology in my AS year and found it very difficult to manage time between all three. Saying this, however, I would probably suggest Maths or Physics instead of History/English, as I imagine it would look better to unis

    Fair enough. I suppose because I took psychology, which is quite different (skill etc. wise), that I saw it as almost a 'break' from the sciences. Suppose it's what you prefer/find easier
