    Right, I've decided to go into either dentistry or actuary. I am going to take: Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Economics. If I decide to go into actuary, then I think I would do MORSE or Physics degree. If I decide to go into dentistry, then a dentistry degree.

    The question is that are my a-levels ok for the degree courses I want to do?

    Many Thanks

    you may need to take Biology for dentistry, even if its to A/s level

    bristal want AAB, A grades in both Chemistry and one other lab-based science
    but also say
    A grade Biology if not taken to A-level (Biology is the preferred second subject at A-level)

    looks like others what that as well

    I'm pretty sure that for dentistry you'd need biology.

    Do 5 and add biology in there..

    Then you can carry on 3/4 to A2 when you know what you want to apply for.

    Make your mind up on degree choice-where's physics come from?:p:
    Those subjects seem fine; perfect. Good luck and work hard.

    You should take and get A's in Biology and Chemistry.

    But as you said "Right, I've decided to go into either dentistry or actuary" you probably won't get in to dentistry at uni. Because they want proper dedication to that course and want you to convince them that it is your dream to do it due to the huge number of applications to places (only around a 1000 i think and only 9 unis in England that do it.
