    Hi there,

    I am currently in Year 12 studying A Levels Biology, Chemistry and Spanish. I am highly interested in going into Dentistry. I have been queried about my subject choices frequently and I am now in a position in which I feel that I am making the wrong decision of taking Spanish when I could choose Maths. I understand that universities are more interested in candidates who take on 3 lab-based sciences if they want to pursue a career in Science, but I feel that I am more confident that I will be able to get an A in Spanish compared to a subject like Maths for example.

    Has anyone experienced this situation? Or can anyone give me advice about my decision?

    Thank you

    I did Biology Chemistry and Spanish for a level (with History AS) and am in my first year of medicine at Cardiff! Languages are super useful and spanish was an easier A* for me than maths. You definitely don't need 3 lab based sciences nor do the unis (maybe apart from oxbridge, imperial etc..) prefer candidates with all sciences or maths.

    Good luck!
