    What is there to differentiate between ? It's either you are capable of practicing Dentistry or not. That is my point.
    Well Im guessing the courses are oversubscribed and so how do they differentiate between the large number of applicants?

    Differentiating between applicants is different from differentiating between current dental students.

    The latter have already been differentiated from those deemed "less likely" of becoming dentists.

    So how do they decide if somebody gets a place for specialisation?
    You're becoming confused with medicine. You can't specialise as a dentist until you've been practising as a GDP for a few years.

    You can specialise after 2 years as a dentist, same as medicine.
    Most people do their VT year, then do an SHO then they specialise.

    Most people don't specialise. Only a small minority do.
