    I thought dentistry didn't care about GCSE's, only what came next? Or is it that the scottish unis dont care about Standard grades?

    Dentistry do care about GCSE's, at least most/some uni's do.

    It is best to check the entry requirements of the uni's you intent o apply to, because when i was applying, some uni's required an A for GCSE at english language, so I wouldn't waste an option applying there, and some require 5A's (which you have).

    When it's time for you to apply, check the entry requirements. But, your GCSE's are really good, and you shouldn't have any manjor issues at all (I think). Focus on your AS's now.

    Ah okay, thank you for the advise. Does it make a difference between the A levels you choose? Like currently I've picked to do Maths, chemistry, biology and ICT for my A levels, but if I sawpped ICT for Spanish, would that make a difference. Is there a particular subject that Denistry likes to have besides Maths, chemistry and biology?

    lol this is a pointless thread, they are absolutely fine, if you had done the research of entry requirements using the university websites/prospectuses you would have saved yourself starting this thread anyways stop worrying and concentrate on your a-levels

    Your GCSE's are really good, don't see why you are worrying. Btw GCSE's are very important since most people who apply have grades of atleast AAB or are predicted this, so obviously the next thing down that unis will look at will be your GCSE's and ofcourse other things like the UKcat test, work experience, references etc.
    Good luck anyway.
