    Will I be at an disadvantage if I don't do A-level maths? I was thinking of doing Biology, Chemistry and Psychology. I would pick maths but I don't think I would do well because I'm currently in year 11 and struggling doing GCSE maths (I only get B's). I don't even know if dentistry is the career for me so I don't what to do because I'm also interested in biochemistry and if I change my mind and want to do biochemistry, I'll be at a disadvantage because some universities want maths. I don't know what to do help please (

    Nope, do not worry about taking maths. As long as you are taking Chemistry and Biology, it is more that okay. I know of many dental applicants who take for example chemistry, biology, psychology and geography and they're at no disadvantage whatsoever.
    And you have time yet. Do work shadowing in both fields - it will help you to make your decision.
