Are my A Levels appropriate for medicine related subjects? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi, so I recently got my GCSE results and they were actually better than I had expected . For my A Levels I have chosen Biology, Chemistry, English Literature and History... Will these subjects allow me to take Dentistry, Optometry etc...? I know taking Maths or Physics would give me a better footing but I really don't think I could get good grades in those subjects. I just want to know if it's worth taking Chem because otherwise I may as well drop it and focus on a literature based subject if these subjects don't give me a good chance.

    Yeah If you want a good chance of Medicine/Dentistry Maths, Bio and Chem are pretty much the necessary combination. Are you sure you don't want to take Maths? It's not really that hard at AS since the first module is kind of an extension of GCSE
