Which of the above is better suited for my GCSE's?Hi,
I've completed my GCSEs last year, I achieved 2 A*s, 1 A in Biology, chemistry and Physics. I achieved 9 in Maths, 6 in English Language, B in Business Studies, C in History. I am going to choose uni with low GCSEs weighting:
Im currently studying A levels Biology, Chemistry and Law. Does anyone have any disagreements regarding the choices of universities that I'm going to apply for this year:

Although I am uncertain if this applies to every university but generally to study medicine most prefer if you have maths. However, it won't limit you and people are accepted who don't have maths at a level and a 9 at GCSE on the new exams is incredible.
In my opinion, you are equally suited to both looking at your gcses. Maybe look over the course outlines at some unis you like and decide which is most interesting to you or try and think about what you would write on a personal statement for each. Is there one that you find much easier to talk about?
Ive heard Manchester is good for dentistry?

Medicine and dentistry are both competitive courses, and vary quite a lot in terms of what you are studying and doing. So, you should probably consider which one you would rather go into, as opposed to applying to the less competitive one. I don't know about dentistry, but there are many medicine unis that don't particularly look at GCSEs, so as long as you do well in your A-Levels and get good predictions, and do well in the entrance exams, you should stand a good chance!
You haven't written what unis you will apply to, but from the top of my head, avoid unis like Cardiff, Birmingham, Oxford, Edinburgh
