    Ideally i would like to go into dentistry (or maybe medicine) and im having trouble on A- level choices, i am going for definetly maths, biology, chemistry, however the maths im doing is accelerated so will include an AS in further maths, but i can decide whether to do physics, geography or economics, all of which i enjoy and am predicted an A* in gcse. The only thing is i greatly enjoy physics and it is definetly one of my favourite subjects and i am willing to put the work in, but then my selection of subjects will get very, very difficult and my grades could suffer. Should I do physics, i mite just add i am one of those people who kind of enjoy a challenge, but is this challenge too big

    As long as you got Bio/Chem, the others dont really matter.
    Its good that you've got Maths aswell, as that counts as another science.

    Hmm you could take Economics/Geography as your fourth option as it shows your not all about the sciences and that you study a Humanities subject aswell.

    However, I would choose the subject which you enjoy most, and one where you could get the highest possible grade (in your case, this subject is Physics).

    It'll be fine =) it probs wont be too much of a challenge but if it is you can always drop physics a week or two into term.

    I'd pick Geography.

    Its not too bad - the further maths is an AS across two years so its not THAT much extra work.

    But yeah it does get a bit much sometimes aha.

    Yes, an A* in GCSE subjects such as Eng Lit and Lang will be beneficial to your application, however in uni admissions for GCSE's, I dont think they look to much at the indiviaul subjects you studied at GCSE. I think they mainly look at the number of A*'s achieved. So just do your best to get the best possible grades.
