ahright that makes me quiet happy now that my gcse's are good enough, i was worried more A*'s are needed for dentistry and medicine e.g. birmingham wanting 7 A*'s or something. Maxillofacial surgery takes 17 years?!?!
i was actually thinkin of that, id still have to do denstistry and then specialise in that right?
Hey man, im applying for law so this definelty a non-biased answer
It seems to me you want to do medicine more than dentistry. I say that because your reason to do medicine and become a psychiatrist seems more genuine and sounds like a goal for you. Whilst you pros for dentistry about getting a job straight away sounds like an impatient 17/18 year old lol!
You got the grades and medicine will be a lot varied and more interesting then dentistry (like 10x more!).
Being a psychiatrist takes 8 years i think, my psychology teacher says u need to do medicine and then psychology and he says its add about 8 years possibly more. But i think pyschiatrists get really cool cases meeting people with weird psychological problems and the fact you help them is a feeling no dentist will ever feel when putting in a filling .
Finally, 7A* at Bham is Bullsh**. My friend got 6A's 4B's 1C at GCSE and got offer from QMUL, KCL and UCL, whilst my other friend got 10A* 2A and has only got QMUL and rejection from UCL and imperial. Its NOT about the grades (although they are important) it's about you man!
