    Hello,
    I am currently about to take my GCSEs but I need to choose my A levels now.
    I know I want to do a career in Medicine or Dentistry and I must take Biology and Chemistry, however I am not sure what to take for my 3rd.
    I have narrowed it down to RS (Religious Studies) and Maths.
    I enjoy RS and have heard it is becoming more and more valued to universities but maths seems to be the standard one to take. I am good at maths but do not enjoy it and RS apparently provides a good ethical insight which is good for medicine.

    Any advice is helpful thanks.

    Are you better at RS?

    I suggest you pick the one that you can get the best grade in. Most Medicine/ dentistry offers are AAA and far fairly strict on those. Standard Chem and Bio they don't really care about the 3rd one.
    Think of it this way you would rather get AAA with RS then AAB with maths and potentially miss your offer because you wanted to be traditional

    I'm equally good at both right now but from what I've seen so far I dont think I could manage A level maths.

    Im also at one of the best schools in England so I'm not too worried about getting anything less than an A

    But yeah thanks
