Choose something you’re interesting in. Do not underestimate the difficulty of those subjects . I haven’t studied neither but I studied Biology Chemistry and English Lit and I’ll tell you that you have no clue what an easy A Level is , you haven’t sat any A Levels . If you want to get a good grade , pick something you’re good at.

Personally i would say something like maths which is a 'hard science will increase your chances of getting in but if that's not what your good at its more important to get the grades if you already do two 'hard sciences'

This is wrong . Choosing a hard science like maths will not increase their chances of getting in

This means maths or physics will increase chances

Mesopotamian. may be able to confirm if any dental schools require or give an advantage to students with a third STEM subject at A-level; I'm not aware of any personally.

Based on what Mesopotamian. has said in the past though A-level Physics may be useful background for the course in general, although that doesn't imply it has any influence on admissions.

Um no that’s not what it means. Some dental schools will take a combination of physics and chemistry for example as opposed to chemistry and biology . Keeping your options more open does not mean a greater chance of getting in lol . Dental schools only have a preference of a max of 2 subjects . The third one can be whatever you want and it does NOT affect chances of getting in , unless for example my A* is in English lit but they want an A* in biology. However grades aside what you said is incorrect so I’m just letting you know.

Absolutely. A third science or maths A Level does not confer any advantages admissions wise. Dental schools don’t care what the third subject is, as long as you have at least an A in it.
