Help on getting on a dental degree

Announcements Posted on
Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016
    • Thread Starter

    I've got 5 Bs in English lit, maths, biology, chemistry and Spanish and 4 Cs in physics, history, English lang and music for GCSE. I'm doing Maths, Chemistry and biology for A level with and extended project with predicted grades of As.

    I know that my GCSEs are extremely low but is there anything I can do to take the attention off them when I apply? I've got 6 weeks worth of work experience and I've done voluntary work in Uganda twice teaching about dental care and actually giving dental care to civilians while abroad (with the observation of a qualified dentist of course). And I'm going a third time soon too. I also do voluntary work in a dental hospital once a week too.

    I've done everything I could think of to make me stand out but I don't think it's enough, please help me!!
