    I got my GCSE grades back yesterday...
    I was extremely upset with maths but expected it as I panicked in the exam so gained a B which has upset me. But I got 5 A*s in Science Additional, English Language, History, English Lit and RS and 2 As one in French and one in Science Core which I sat last year. Also two B's in health. I'm wanting to do dentistry or something medical, but unsure what to take now I've currently taken Chem, Bio and French and am dropping maths. Would I be able to do something medical with these GCSE grades?

    Your GCSEs are great - of course you'll be able to study something medical at uni, as long as you get at least AAA in your A levels

    Nope, A Levels are more important. I'd say maybe if you'd got a B in science but a B in maths is fine. Concentrate on your A Levels and get top grades in them.
