I want to pursue a career in Dentistry at university. However I'm hearing a lot from current A-Level students that Biology and Chemistry AS is nothing compared to GCSE, I know that this is true, but I'm just wondering if I'll be able to handle AS Bio and Chem???
I'm Predicted 3A*s for Triple Science. Does that mean I'm capable of achieving A*-A in A-Level Bio and Chem, IF I was to revise daily.
Also from September how much should I revise daily, IF I gain a place in my A-Levels of
Bio,Chem,Math and Accounts.

It's possible, a lot of work needed. I'm doing AS Bio, Maths, Physics and Art next year and that'll be a lot of work but I'm willing to do it and revising daily isn't necessary, you'll just wear yourself out.

With A*s in GCSE sciences, you should definitely be aiming for top grades at A level. Chemistry is significantly harder at A level, but as long as you keep on top of the work and make sure you thoroughly understand the content rather than trying to memorise it all, you should be fine. I don't think biology was as much of a step up, although I did start AS Biology in my A2 year, so I guess it was less of a jump for me as we had already studied a lot of it in AS Chemistry. You'll find that there is a fair amount of overlap between the sciences, which definitely helps you to learn it all!
Dentistry is very competitive - why don't you consider Physics instead of Accounts?

I wouldn't be able to handle Physics, also I choose to take accounts as a back up A-Level just incase I was to do really bad in Biology and Chemistry.
