    I'm taking maths/bio/chem/psychology with the intention of going into medicine/dentistry at uni.
    However I may choose not to take either course for various reasons and was wondering where can I go with these a-levels?
    Also a good replacement for psychology as I doubt I'm interested in studying it, like economics business etc.

    Cheers

    chemical engineering, chemistry, biochemistry, maths, business....tbh, they're a good all round set of A levels

    as a sub for phsyco, you could pick Economics (dont take business), Geography or Physics (if your up to the challenge )

    Economics is a good subject, I would recommend you do that instead of Business if you were to change. You can go almost anywhere with those A levels whether it be Medicine at Uni or Maths or even Psychology.

    Could I do finance related degrees if I replace the psychology with Economics?
    Is Economics a hard subject in general?

    Yes certainly, Maths would help with that too I'd imagine. Economics is the easiest subject I do out of Maths, History, Eng Lit and Economics. It has very basic principles to get your head around whereas at oour school, Psychology is rather hit and miss as reflected in results here.

    I did Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Economics and I strongly recommend it. It's not really that much work (if your good at sciences) and it is a very strong academic set that could lead you to Medicine, Dentistry or Economics at a top university (however at a top TOP university for economics i.e. Cambridge or LSE further maths is recommended at least to AS level to give you the maximum chance)

    Well, there are all the scientific courses you could do: biochemistry, veterinary science, biomedical science, accounting and management, chemical engineering, geology, zoology, economics, or computing.

    Alternatively, you could go into something entirely non-scientific, such as law, for which there aren't usually any required subjects.
