    Hi guys. I'm really confused on what alevels to pick. I want to go in to dentistry-So I'm defo taking biology and chemistry, and ICT. But for the 4th one I wanted to take economics but a lot of people are saying it's boring subject so should I take psychology instead. Please don't say take maths. I've been on a lot of university websites, and they say you need biology and chemistry, and no advantage is give if you have maths!

    do something that you will enjoy because you will be actively studying it for at least a year so an interest helps when it comes to revision! I don't know if its common at most sixth form/colleges but I was able to do some sit in lessons to get a taster of what a subject was all about and there's usually a month or so at the beginning of the year where you can decide to swap your subjects if they're not right for you so I would go with your gut first of all and then when you start you can assess accordingly. Did you go to the sixth form/college open evening?
