    Im starting biochemistry this year after being rejected from dentistry for not achieving the required grades
    I was wondering how realistic it is to go from biochemistry into dentistry?
    Is it really competitive? Also, are graduates allowed to apply to undergrad dentistry courses, because I heard that many graduate courses are closing..

    Also, most unis want 2.1, to be honest I dont know much about the university system but is that hard to obtain especially in a degree like Biochemsitry?
    And how would you compare uni to A-levels?

    Also, lets say I graduated with the required degree and I didnt get in my first try, could I try again the following year?
    I really want to do dentistry and I dont mind giving it a shot as a graduate but I dont want to end up with 3 years wasted.

    Thank you so much!
