    So I'm currently re-sitting my first year of A-Levels again as I messed up the first time around. Last year I got BDDE in Business Studies, Biology, Maths and Physics respectively.
    This year I'm studying Maths, Further Maths, Biology and Physics, and everything seems to be going great! I'm aiming for all A's this year and I actually think that might be a possibility for me.

    I'm keeping my options pretty open at the moment. But the courses that I'm interested in are Biomedical Engineering, Biomaterials Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Medicine, Dentistry and Biomedical Sciences.

    So basically what I was wondering was, what is the best-possible outcome for me as far as universities go? Would I be able to apply to Dentistry or Medicine with these A-Levels? And which course would you suggest doing?

    hey, im no expert in medicine but i think alot of unis ask for chemistry to do it (well most i've seen anyway) but maybe check around because some might just ask for bio
    i think you should pick which ever course you like the most, and with your a levels you do have a quite broad choice. with physics and maths all of the engineering courses (sans perhaps chemical) are open to you! if you really like bio + physics then maybe one of the bio-engineerings would be best?
