    Hi, results didn't go too much to plan for me i did horribly in my main two subjects:
    A - Religious studies
    C - Chemistry
    C - Biology
    C - Psychology

    Now heres my dilemma, would it be better to drop an 'A' grade? I mean instead of a C grade ?

    If i dropped psychology, would I be able to retake any of the AS exams in my A2 year? Baring in mind that it is dropped?

    Also, i know i shouldn't be thinking about dentistry now but I am going to retake and work a lot harder next year, then perhaps take a gap year.

    Is Religious Studies considered for dentistry if taken on to A2?

    Thank you guys so much!

    You will need to check with universities about religious studies. And you will be able to retake exams, even if you have dropped it, so don't worry

    Thank you for your reply, many people say it is considered a weak a-level subject?

    However many get into russel group universities with RS so i'm unsure of that claim?

    Any where I can see what uni's think about regarding RS?

    You'll need to check the individual department pages for that information. If you know what course you would like to study, check out the university's page for that course to see what they accept. It will take a bit of research, but it'll be worth it for such a big decision!
