Could I get onto a dentistry course or something like that at uni with an A-level in biology and BTEC level 3 in Applied Science? I'm still in high school I'm just curious about the options that would be available to me if I took these subjects at college.

Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you’ve posted in the right place? Posting in the specific Study Help forum should help get responses.

I'm going to quote in Tank Girl now so she can move your thread to the right place if it's needed. :yy:
