    Just wondering what 4 A Levels (5 AS) would be useful for studying Dentistry at university.

    Does anyone know?

    Thanks for any help.

    If it's anything like medicine,
    A2 Maths, Biology and Chemistry would probably be needed,
    and then pick two more 'traditional' subjects.. though honestly it depends on where you want to apply to.

    Chemistry is essential
    Biology is essential for most schools and optional for a select few [however, I don't see why you wouldn't choose biology if you had dentistry in mind]
    + any other subject that you enjoy

    Note: MATHS is neither preferred or essential

    Have a look on each university webpage to get an idea. There are only 13 schools, so it won't take you longer than 20 minutes.
