    I have completed my GCSES. I wanted to do biology, chemistry and physics. The college asks for an B in science and maths. However I got a B in science but not maths so I was wondering if they would let me on still. I want to become an dentist so these subjects are important. Has anyone been allowed on?

    Depends on what college you're going to, but they should definitely let you do biology since there's hardly any maths involved (you'll probably get a 2 marker question at most in an exam) . However, chemistry and physics have a lot more challenging maths involved especially since you only have obtained a C grade in maths you will find this difficult . I would advise against doing these subjects unless you're are confident in tackling some tricky maths questions . (The maths involved is nowhere near as hard as a-level maths though)
    But if you 100% set on becoming a dentist and doing these subjects just ring up and ask them, that's all you can do

    Let's say there let me on for biology and chemistry but not physics. What should i choose as a third option to become an dentist ?

    Anything which is not considered a 'soft' subject will greatly increase your chances of getting in (at A2 ), just take something which you achieved well in and enjoyed at GCSE. But you will definitely need at least biology and chemistry to get into dentistry .
