    Hello, I am not sure on what A-Levels to do for a career in Dentistry.

    Can I not do Math and still get in to a University like Queens Mary or Kings for a Dentistry course.

    Thank you in advance.

    I'd advise doing Maths to at least AS, there'll be a lot of competition so you want to look as good as you can. Is there any reason in particular for which you do not want to do maths?

    Not particularly, I just think it will require a lot of my attention to get an A/A*. However, if it will help me I am willing to take it. What Maths module do you suggest for Dentistry. Also, are the four options: Biology, Chemistry, Economics and Maths a good selection.

    Biology + Chemistry. ( Two sciences, maths counts as a science )other Good useful subject, like history or econ or whatever. Maths you do not need, but would be good to have, but if you don't really like it, Please don't do it, youll most likely fail. Try to make your AS easier, by not doing maths and only two sciences, since you need great grade and can't resit at all, to do Dentistry. if you do 4 sciences or 3, youll be overwork, more likely to get less good grades, and thus less likely to do your course.
    My advice do Chem + BIO, Bio is easy and needed, Chem is hardest but teh most respected science A-level. Physics is in between, boring and useless, if you want to chance course. Do not do maths, its too much work and effort and with 2 sciences youll overwork yourself. Pick 2 other good subjects you enjoy. To make work easier and so you can work harder on Chem and Bio.

    Ahh fair enough. As long as you're fairly good at Maths you will be fine at A-level providing you keep up with work and practice And I'm not sure if you can choose Maths modules? My college made us do stats and decision. I doubt any University will focus on what module you do as you're not doing a maths-based course. And yeah, them options seem fair, as long as the universities accept them which they will state on the requirements page of the course you will be fine
