    You cant apply for Medicine/Dentistry with less than a B in English, thats the first thing.
    Secondly, you're being quite vague. You have to pick one. You can't say "either this or that"
    Medicine and Dentistry are poles apart. extremely different. do not get into the ignorant way of thinking that they are "similar".
    For some universities like Medicine at Birmingham/Cambridge/Oxford/Bristol, they require you to have 8A* minimum at GCSE.
    GCSEs are also a good predictor of A Level grades. You must be scoring in the A/A* range to know you will be capable to enter such competitive courses like Med/Dent/Pharmacy.
    I hope it goes well for you
    Best of luck xx

    Not true. The only University that states they want >8 A*s is Birmingham. Theoretically someone without even a single A grade at GCSE could get an interview at Oxford if they were in the top 4% of BMAT scorers. It's difficult with Cambridge, but plenty of people get into Cambridge, for medicine, without 8 A*s at GCSE, they're far less important than UMS marks for Cambridge. Bristol are known for wanting great GCSEs, but you're not required to have 8 A*s.

    i enjoy and i am good at science and marths
    Depends on how high a B your coursework is and how low a D your exams are...the problem is that coursework is normally only 25%, the exams a much larger amount.
