    Subjects Studied at AS : - Biology, Chemistry, Maths & English Literature
    I plan on staying for year 13 and dropping either English or Chemistry at A- Level
    I am an Indian passport holder and study in the middle east- if I do well in my UKCAT and AS exams and get predicted 3A's at A2, is it worth applying to Dentistry? My GCSE's are obviously not that great- and the course I would apply to If i don't apply to Dentistry is Psychology- what unis should I apply to if I am predicted the following grades? :

    If you look at Dentistry course pages on Uni websites you will soon realise it isnt all about GCSEs.
    Yes you need to meet the minimum GCSE requirements but A levels, UKCAT etc and your Personal Statement/Work Experience count for far more.

    There are Open Uni Days coming up in June and you dont need to be in Year 12 to go to them. The subject talks, and just looking around the Dentistry dept, will give you a really good idea of what the subject/career is about and what you need for your application. If this isnt possible because you are overseas, then look on YouTube for films about these Open Days.

    Check uni reqs on their websites.
