    I am currently in year 12 and taking Chemistry Psychology Maths and Geography and really want to study Dentistry/Medicine. I know i need biology but I got a B in GCSE 2 off an A after remark so i couldnt take it for alevel and that alone stresses me out everyday and makes me depressed. Anyway my GCSE results were:
    Bio B
    Chem A
    maths A
    Rs a*
    arabic a*
    geog a
    drama B
    physics C
    spanish b
    eng lit a
    eng lang C (reisting soon dont worry)

    but reading other forms and being at a grammar school wherw people got all As I feel like my results arent good enough, should i just give up (not really) what should i do? medicine instead, unis are eaiser with medicine than dentistry even though i really want dentistry.
    and the deal with bio is that im going to take it as an AS in year 13 hopefully

    If you really want bio id drop geography and self study bio, for As I did that last year it just takes effort. Feel free to ask any questions regarding the subject if you want.

    Some Unis only need Chemistry e.g. Newcastle but yeh most need Biology.
    Have a look at the Unis which only need chemistry and you could still apply to a few
