I got: A2 3 A's plus B at AS. GCSE 8A*'s 2A's. UKCAT 683.

I received 3 offers so it shows you don't have to have highest grades possible.


If you have any other questions just let me know.
They're high, your stats are one of the best you could get😄 which universities did you get an offer from? And do they really look at gcses? I'm only going to be able to get 4A*'s and 6A's😕 thanks by the way😜

I want to apply to dentistry and I was just wondering the stats of those who have been offered a place
A*A*A, 6A*s5As, 717.5ukcat - relevent w/e volunteering. I got one offer.
People are right that its not all about the grades since everyone who applies will have the grades.
Although, Its not going to get any easier to get in - the GDC reduced the number of dentistry places at uni by 10% this year so competition is EVEN tougher since the number of applicants for dentistry is still rising.
It wont be long until dentistry is A*AA minimum entry

Plymouth and your GCSEs will be fine for most places. Having a high UKCAT will secure you interviews ive found with most applicants as long as you obviously have AAA w/e etc. Interviews are different at each uni also - e.g plymouths interview was very ethical/morality based and lasted around 30 mins whereas sheffield is a lot more standard and only about 10/15 mins. Youve probably heard 'apply smart' and 'apply where it suits your application', its the best advise since every university have little things that they prefer over others e.g leeds are willing to compromise academics for long w/e placements. Plymouth and barts rank you on UKCAT and academics a lot. Sheffield and kings are big on ukcat, birmingham big on gcses etc etc.
As I said though, competition is just going to get tougher and tougher since there are more applicants each year and the number of places have reduced.

Thanks . And I received offers from Manchester (where I'm going), Liverpool and Newcastle. GCSE wise it's not as important as A2's but as long as you have pretty solid ones like you said you have then you will definitely be fine.

I got 637 in my UKCAT which was quite poor. Predicted 3A*s for my A-levels. I got 9A*s 2A 2Bs in GCSEs, one of the Bs was in english language which limited which universities I could apply to. Got 3 interview yet only one offer from Manchester. Its not all about grades have an awesome personal statement and have decent interview skills.

It took a while for my letters to come after I firmed but the deadline for the health questionnaire is the 30th of June and the proof of immunisation must be done by the 1st of August at the latest. Probably best to call.

Guys where should I apply please help!

I have got:

7A* 4A's at GCSE
AS: AABB
Predicted A2: A*A*A
UKCAT: 630

Would Barts be out of the question?
Yes, the tariff cutoff point is 410 but you would only have 400. Unless you have other tarrifable qualifications. Congrats on your as results

Hi guys, since some of you are now students in manchester i was wondering if you could inform on how the interviews for dentistry work there? The uni website isn't as useful as it doesn't say if its a standard interview or MMI and the sorts of things ask.
