It doesn't matter. You don't need maths for medicine or dentistry. Maths A-level has statistics in it as well as pure maths, so there's no point in taking "statistics maths".
Further maths is only if you actually enjoy maths, and it's technically a whole other subject so you'd be doing it alongside single maths. If you don't enjoy maths, don't take further maths. Or any maths, really, because you don't need it.

You will need to do biology, chemistry and physics or maths. Just choose whichever one you are good at, so you do have some flexibility, but you have to have either maths or physics. Also, I am at the beginning of year 12 and doing a-level maths, and it is really difficult. However, further maths and statistic maths are not wanted. Check with the universities you want to apply beforehand.

Did it changed? if so... K CHANGING MY MATHS INTO GEOGRAPHY.
I remember that you need to do A-level maths to get into dentistry course/ medicine- that happened when I was in year 10, now i'm in year 11.

Check the entry requirements on the university website, maths isn't a requirement. The only ones you need are chemistry and biology, it seems.

If you're in England then you have 3 choices:

  • Maths
  • Maths and Further Maths
  • Statistics (not Pure Maths with Statistics, it is just Statistics).,


Do Maths.
