    i might do dentistry but not so sure. At A level i will be taking biology, chemistry and history but not sure 4th subject as i am not so keen on math or physic. but maybe business studies. Is it a safe subject to take ?

    I think you might need to also do maths. From what ive seen, such as kings college, they want biology, chemistry, and maths so im afraid you will have to.
    However if you choose these 3 options, you may want to make your 4th subject something a little less intense. My knowledge of business studies and history is limited at A-level as I don't do them but from what ive seen, they require a lot of writing (especially history) which im guessing could take up a lot of your time.

    However don't foget you can drop it at A2 if you really want (presumably).
    So you will need
    Biology, chemistry and Physics/Maths
    and anything else that you want (business or history)

    What ive said is general though, kings college as mentioned above want maths.
    But if I were you id look around at the uni's which do dentistry just to make sure.

    (also just o let you know you'll have to do a UKCAT test if you do dentistry which basically tests your thinking abilities, and it's not easy so make sure you search these things on the internet)

    Hope ive helped
