    I'd say drop law.. psychology is more applicable to real life and a more valuable skill in my opinion. Law as an a level isn't regarded that highly.. I want a career in law and have been told from the beginning from teachers, admissions officers, lecturers etc that if you want a career in law your best bet is taking completely different a levels.. law is just too focussed.

    I know you want to do dentistry, not law, but just an example of how law is regarded.

    Well psychology is a science so it will be better if you carried this subject in A2

    Very true also. Science subject- also essay based in A2 so is an all-rounder really.

    it doesn't matter at all. people saying drop one or the other haven't got a clue. studying dentistry contains amounts of psychology and also aspects of law regarding treatment. All an interviewer would want you to do is justify your decision and in both cases you can. Do what you enjoy find easiest etc.

    i would definitely disagree.

    psychology is becoming much more respected now, some universities have even taken it off the "black list"

    OP, do which you enjoy the most, but i would go for psych

    Law isn't exactly a respected subject. People applying to do Law at uni are encouraged NOT to take it, so surely that says something?!
    Psychology can be applied to dentistry in some cases, and classed as a science, makes it imo a much better subject choice.

    Yeah exactly. No one thinks Law is a hardcore A level like Maths/Sciences etc, infact its more like business study or accounts, I mean good unis want you to do harder A levels than do those 2 to get onto Business Admin or Accountancy course. Same with Law students as people are saying before.

    Besides I know people and have seen many on here with Chem,Bio,Physcology as their final A-levels and getting into Medicine. SO i would suggest the same for Dentistry
