So, I've been wanting to do dentistry for some time now but after receiving my GCSE results I am unsure of whether this is still possible. Here are the results I am referring to:

A* core science
A* additional science
A english language
A ICT
B English literature
B Maths
B Geography
B Business
B French

The grade I am mostly concerned about is the B in maths as an A is often required. Any help?

Is that still possible? I hear that only people who achieved under a C can do that.

Yep it's possible I'm retaking because I got a B as well. Just ask your school's exam officer

I think it depends on your sixth form rules, you can't do A-levels if you don't get a C in maths I think.
But if dentistry is what you want to do and you know Maths to an A is quite important then either do it at A-level and/or resit it at GCSE, explain it to your head and i'm sure they'll let you. If they don't i'm pretty sure you can sit as a private candidate somewhere :3?
