    I am currently in fifth year sitting five highers: chemistry, biology, physics, english and maths. However, I am currently in the process of choosing my advanced higher subjects for next year. Being interested in dentistry, I know I'm already fully determined to take advanced higher chemistry and advanced higher biology but I'm not too sure what other advanced higher to take or if I should take another one at all. I'm baffled between taking another advanced higher such as maths or taking an extra higher such as administration and IT. I am aware the requirement for dentistry and medicine is just one advanced higher in either biology or chemistry but for those that take one or two, does that put them more at risk for not getting in compared to those who take three? Would three B's at advanced higher look better than two A's at advanced higher plus an A at the extra higher? And lastly if you do decide to take two advanced highers and a higher, does that mean your overall application must be stronger to balance it out to those of three advanced highers? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
