    well im doing my GCSEs this year well like in a month ..
    and i was away for a while i went to Kenya and was doing the education system for over there and now im back here..and im like so late on everything so im only going to do English Maths Science GSCEs and most probably they might add in something else for me..i really wana become a dentist and people say A levels are quite better than apprenticeships but i prefer doing things practically than just writing down alot of stuff.. i really wana do a dentistry apprenticeship but others say after an apprenticeships theres no jobs around so you might aswell do an Alevel!
    im stuck here please help me out !!

    I thought you had to do a degree for dentistry?

    i dunno about that.. but about the apprenticeship on dentistry, apparently its just a waste of time coz theres no jobs out there, so i dont know whether to take A levels or an apprenticeship ?

    You have to do a degree to become a dentist. You can sometimes do an apprenticeship to become a dentistry nurse (although there are very few around these days - most of this training is done at degree level as well now).
