maths at a level, so I should do english lit. i’m good at english lit but will it decrease my chance of being able to study dentistry at a good uni?
I too thought i was going to fail ( I jumped in a 3 months from a 5 to an 8) but you have months left, just keep doing practice papers more than once, don't give up just yet.
If you do fail or you really don't like maths, you can always switch in the first weeks or if possible do four subjects
You can always switch options at enrolment if you decide to do maths but if you are more likely to get the grades needed if you do English, do that.
You are more likely to get in with an AAA than an AAC.
Dentistry do like 2 sciences and a maths, and with limited places they will prefer if you had maths, but a good UCAT score and the grades will probably get you in.
you could always do both maths and english lit (totally unbiased) for a few weeks so you can decide which one you enjoy more. as someone who's doing maths and english lit at a level, maths i find easier to revise for but i find them both difficult; english lit slightly more.
