    Can anyone answer how long a dentist, dermatologist and a forensic psychologist has to study for? Also, what degrees I will need to do?

    I'm doing GCSEs right now. I picked Geography, ICT, History and French for my options.

    I'm thinking for A-LEVELS I'll take:

    -Biology
    -Chemistry
    -English
    -Psychology (only for AS-level)

    Can someone tell me if that is alright for the medical route?

    Also, if anyone's taking these subjects at A-LEVEL can you tell me how they are, please?

    If anyone is one of the jobs I mentioned, can you tell me how it is?

    Thanks in advance

    Becoming a dentist takes 5 years and you would need a dentistry degree for this.
    Becoming a dermatologist takes over 9 years and you would need a medical degree for this.
    Becoming a forensic psychologist takes at least 5 years and you would need a psychology degree and either a masters or a doctorate.
    Those subjects should be alright for the medical route
