    I have always had my mind set on Dentistry and recently received my GCSE results
    nglish Literature A
    English language B
    RE A*
    Maths C
    Core Science B
    Additional C
    History B
    French B
    Health and Social care B

    I am disappointed with these results and realised that they don't meet the minimum GCSE Requirements for dentistry degrees :/
    Is it possible with AAA at a level and a strong UKCAT score, personal statement and experience my grades could be over looked?

    Could I not follow on to start my As levels this year but instead a year to resit some of my GCSEs and then start? Or start my a levels and just re sit maths in November? Will this affect my UNIVERSITY APPLICATION?

    I would appreciate any help and advice
