I am stuck on options for what to do after my A -Levels, I'm still in secondary school.

GCES PREDICTIONS:
BUSINESS STUDIES-B
ENGLISH-B
GEOGRAPHY-A
HISTORY-B
INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY-B/C
MATHEMATICS-B
PHYSICAL EDUCATION-MERIT
RELIGIOUS EDUCATION-B/A
SCIENCE: CORE - C, ADDITIONAL - B/A

A levels -
Biology
Chemistry
Psychology
Maths
^^^ definitely doing biology, and chemistry, stuck between maths and psychology -

I have looked into Psychology Bsc and all that but they don't lead to good careers, I am interested in dental hygiene and therapy, but I don't know what else I can do.

If you're comfortable with maths and enjoy it, take that because it'll leave so many doors open for you later in uni.

But make sure you take subjects you enjoy.

You could do most science or healthcare-based degrees with those options- medicine, biomedical sciences, forensic science, biological sciences, environmental science, neuroscience, natural sciences, psychology, pharmacy, biology, chemistry, biochemistry, pharmacology... If you get the grades there is loads of stuff you could do with them!

Maths could open a lot of doors for you and with 2 sciences you could do biological sciences, pharmacology, neuroscience, natural sciences etc and I think with any science degree you can do forensic science

You can take psychology forward as an excuse for English? It'll keep your English skills up to scratch

Within Psychology you'd be learning about the human mind and body (which is essential for therapy) and writing essays, similar to English were you do write essays and all but it comes down to preference.
Biology and psychology go nicely together but you can drop Psychology at an AS.

I agree.
And maths opens a lot of doors for you. You could also go onto something like a pgce and teaching.

I'd say it opens more options up for you. Maybe write a list of pros and cons for the two of them. The main thing is that you don't pick maths because you think it sounds better, you'll hate it if you don't enjoy it.
