    Hey guys Im currently in year 11 and I dont really have a good idea of what to pick for A levels. For my GCSE Mocks I got all A's and A*'s, with a B in history. For the record I picked additional science, spanish, geography and history for my GCSE's.

    I have a slight vision of becoming a dentist and working somewhere such as Kuwait or Oman. For this reason I was hoping to pick Biology, Chesmitry, Maths with Stats and something else (undecided). The only problem is, Im not SUPER interested in science. While I am good at all my subjects, I dont really feel a passion for any of them.

    I have a couple of questions that need answering.

    Firstly, how can I decide what kind of job I want in the future? I dont want a mediocre job because I feel like my brain may be going to waste.

    Is going for dentistry a good choice if I'm not crazy passionate about science?

    If I were to pick the subjects mentioned above, what could I take for my last option? Is spanish a good choice? I got A*'s in all aspects; speaking, listening, reading, and writing, but I've heard that the gap between GCSE spanish and A level spanish is huge.

    Thanks in advance

    I would say they are good choices but you should also think about taking a modern foreign language as universities are quite often impressed by this

    I'm doing As Spanish atm and even though there is a gap, looking back to the beginning of the year I feel like the problem was that I was unprepared for it. As Spanish isn't impossible and with some hard work u can do well. Saying that, you'll have to work harder than u may have used to for all ur subjects, so at leat take something ur remotely interested in.
Have you ever experienced racism/sexism at uni?
