What do I need to do? watch

    Hello everyone!

    Im in year 10 at school, and im really struggling at the moment, ive been flooded with alot of exams and it's hard to cope.

    I am doing double award in science, which is additional.
    I want to be a dentist or something in the medical profession, and i've recently been moved down to set 2 which doesnt do tripple award science, does doing double hinder my chances of carrying out my profession?

    what gcses do i need / a-levels?
    any additional advice?

    thanks alot

    I don't think there's a great difference between double and triple science. Most medical schools should not care about your GCSE subjects so long as you have amounted to a certain number of A Stars (I believe Kings College needed 6 for entry last year)

    For your A Level subjects, biology and chemistry are often required.. most people choose maths with that, but it's not always the case, so long as you have one/two other respected A levels, I'm sure subject wise you will be fine.

    (I'm not an expert in medicine.. I have vague ideas about most of it, if you ever decide to go into economics, I'll happily share my research with you. )
