Compter eng or Dentist ( pls read the description)

First of all, hello everyone. I moved to England this year and I don't know much about subjects except mathematics (Of course, we studied those courses, but the subjects of those subjects were completed 1 or 2 years ago in the country I was in before, so in short, I don't even remember most of the subjects). That's why I got 2 or max 3 grades in mock exams. I want to have a computer-related job in the future, but my family wants me to be a good job, such as a dentist or a lawyer (they know that computer engineering is a good job, but like everyone else's family, they want me to be a lawyer or a doctor). I need to choose 3 courses to study A level next year and I am undecided on choosing these courses. First of all, I definitely need to choose mathematics for both computer engineering and dentistry. To become a computer engineer, I need to choose computer science. There have already been 2 courses, and the third will be physics (To become a computer engineer, I have to work in physics). All these 3 courses enable me to become a computer engineer, but I need to study biology to become a dentist. As you know, since my science and computer science courses are bad, I think I can get 6 grade from these 2 courses in such a short time. To become a dentist, I have to choose biology at A level. In order to choose biology, I have to get a 6 grade from GCSE, so it feels like it is very difficult to increase these grades from 3 subjects in a short time. Eğer bu derslerden grade 6 alamazsam b-mecburen BTEC yaparım ve oradan bilgisayar mühendisi olurum (My parents let me become a computer engineer if I do badly because I can't become a dentist from BTEC.) What do you think I should do? I would be glad if you help.
Sorry you've not had any responses about this. :frown: Are you sure you've posted in the right place? :smile: Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses if you post there. :redface:
You don't need to do computer science at A-level to do a degree in computer science - you normally just need A-level Maths (some courses may prefer further maths as well).

Dentistry requires A-level biology and chemistry usually.

Law has no subject requirements.
