I don't think it really matters, if you do triple science or not, just when you are choosing your alevels make sure you look at the entry requirements at different universities for your course

Take for example Bristol http://www.bristol.ac.uk/study/under...bds-dentistry/ they just require an A (7) in Maths and a C(5? I think) in English

You don't have to.

Some schools don't even offer triple science.

ok thank you , did you do triple ?

It would be highly advisable if you did. Doing Triple Science gives you a firmer foundation for your science A-levels, and will also give you a broader perspective for your UCAT exam in the summer after Year 12.

If your school is offering you a Triple option, please take it with open arms.

Take it if you want to.

I enjoy science, so I took it back in 2015.

Not really. Just the CGP revision guide, the textbook, specification and past papers.

No, I'm ancient; we didn't have such things back in my day.

My children have taken it, though, and they have found it to be very useful.

Some sixth forms don't let people take bio and chem A-levels without triple science at GCSE but you should be fine.
