    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. )
Do you like carrot cake?
