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?

thanks
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!

im still in a great dilemma, in whether to choose between dentistry and medicine. both are great courses and definitely offers great job opportunities. but, after reading through many student forums about dent vs med, i found out that its actually a 50-50 situation, where none wins over each other. initially my passion was towards dentistry, but now im kinda hesitating and kinda fell in love with medicine a bit. i used to think that dentistry not only offers me a guaranteed comfortable job, but also allows me to live my own lifestyle the way i like, less stress, less burden, and of course less working hours. it also gives me the green light to have a more enjoyable family life in the future for myself. BUT, my passion towards dent is kinda changing towards med and i also found out that med has also many of its own benefits. im SOOOO confused and in a HUGE dilemma. can anybody out there help me? ur suggestions are really appreciated
