    Hello,

    I, like many of you got my AS Level results back and I did rather well in RS. I achieved an A in AS Religious Studies Delighted as it made not doing so well in my other sciency subjects less painful :unimpressed:

    I study Biology, Chemistry, Psychology and RS. I achieved an A in RS and in the other 3 subject I achieved overall C's respectively. Now then, I want to either drop Psychology or RS. But many people are saying I could carry on RS and potentially achieve an A*/A grade I hope. However, these aspirations have been hindered by the majority who say that "RS isn't a recognised A Level, it's weak, you won't get considered for higher courses.. blabla".

    Just saying I want to study Dentistry (I know I didn't achieve the grades needed for 2013-2014 application, hence why I am looking to take a gap year after my A2 year).

    Can anyone advise me whether to drop RS or Psychology? And what they would do in my situation? I mean an A*/A in RS would look better than an overall B in psychology, am I right?

    Does anyone have experience or know of anyone who got into Dentistry and studies RS at A2 level?

    Thank you, A.

    hey, well done! which exam board are you on?

    personally, i love religous education and i'm going to start studying theology at uni in september, so obviously i would say drop psychology. i do both of them too and overall got a B in re and a C in psychology. psychology is a great subject to do but from experience i think you should go with the ones that will benefit you grade wise and it seems like that's re for you

    i have a couple of cousins who do dentistry but i don't think they did anything religious at A level.

    Thanks! I do Edexcel I think, hmm I study psychology too but I think I could do quite well in religious studies it would be accepted for Dentistry. I mean, baring in mind you're studying theology it may have suited you more to take RS into A Level from AS, just need some clarification if it would be okay for Dentistry applicants.
