    Well I've chosen the following A levels and I have been secured the places in the following subjects, however as I would like to peruse a career as a dentist I was wondering if they were good enough for dentistry and how hard they are: thanks

    A level literature and language (combined)
    A level Biology
    A level Chemistry
    A level Psychology

    They seem like a good choice of subjects to me! If you enjoy them you won't find them too difficult!

    There is a fantastic site called:

    It can help you to see which university courses require which kinds of A levels and what the four A levels you have listed may also be able to lead to.

    Just type in Dentisty, select which courses look good and click on the A levels tab. Biology and Chemistry look like great choices and even better if you think you'll enjoy them!

    Maths and Physics may also give you an advantage - however all science subjects at A level tend to have a bit of a reputation for being quite taxing and they're not easy peasy! How did you do at science in your GCSE's / predicted GCSE's?
