Uni Degree Options

Hello, i’m in year 12 and i currently do biology, chemistry, and psychology. When picking these a-levels i thought i’d go into dentistry, however, now it’s the end of the year and i’ve decided that i don’t want to anymore. What options do i have with these a-levels? If you also have these alevels and didn’t go into dentistry or medicine, what are you currently/planning to do as a degree?

This gives you best matches, close matches and unexpected matches ... hope it helps
I'm doing bio and chem but I do RS instead and I'm going to do biomed. You can basically do any science related degree but you could also do something more in psychology. You should check potential courses you want to do and see the entry requirements for a level.
psychologist ? criminology ? law ?

oh alright, do you think it’s possible to do anything outside of science related degrees? I’m thinking more like tech, econ, etc but i don’t have maths

Econ at leading universities will require A level Maths. Econ at lower universities often doesnt require A level Maths but has a GCSE requirement. If you dont meet it then you will be automatically rejected, Nottingham accept students without A level Maths but dont make offers until all others have been considered.

Subjects like Politics, Law, Sociology dont have specific Maths requirement so might be worth looking into instead of Economics.
