    Hey!
    So i need to choose my a levels soon and i've come to the doing these:
    Biology, Psychology, Economics and Chemistry. I really dont want to do maths a level and thats why I am not choosing it. Are the a levels chosen a good set in order for me to get into a good university. I am planning on doing something within the field of science eg dentistry/pharmacy when I am older.
    Thanks

    yep, you've got 2 sciences which is great and economics is looked upon highly (I think).
    dentistry and pharmacy don't really rely heavily on maths so i think you're alright in that respect, although a lot of universities would appreciate students to have a Maths A Level, but again it's not compulsory i don't think.
    so all in all your subjects suit what you wanna do

    I'm going into medicine/forensics/neuroscience and I chose the exact same subjects as you (economics because it'll give me a broad range of knowledge) so I think those choices are really good for what you want to do

    Hey! Thank you, I just was worried as no one is taking both psychology and economics. Have you done your AS?

    She got a place for medicine but she decided to change last minute to a law degree, not sure why tbh :/ I've done a bit of psychology reading and going to start biology and chemistry from tomorrow, I'm planning to drop economics of maybe chemistry, depending on what I get a better grade in. What about you?
