    Hey guys,
    Is it possible to get into dentistry with the 4th AS at a grade C (economics)?
    Yes, make sure you get predicted AAA.

    do you think next year AAA wont be enough? will not having A* be a major disadvantage?

    Highly doubt it.
    Purely based on the offer, I agree, I doubt it will go up to A*AA

    But do unis still put preference on those who achieved A*s? Like people with higher GCSEs. Ive heard they dont, but I find that kinda hard to believe

    Grades at this kind of level are just a tickbox. It's the other parts of your application that create the variables admissions teams can compare applicants on.

    If you've got solid work exp., voluntary work, gcse, ukcat, can prove manual dexterity, show leadership+teamwork qualities, and are predicted AAA...you will get an interview. If you've got good interview technique... you will get an offer.

    I highly doubt getting predicted A*AA will allow you to make up for the other parts of your application or put you at an advantage over someone with better (e.g) work exp.

    That is reassuring lol, my school apparently advises against applying if you dont have A*s. Ill try and get as many as I can, but if I didnt get any then Id hate to think I couldnt do dentistry because of it. thanks

    yay

    i applied for aston pharmacy as back up just in case worse comes to worse and i dont get the 3 As.

    have u applied for any back up?
    well i did have a pharmacy offer at UEA but i declined it cos i really dont want to do it! my advice is if you dont get the grades then reapply as a resit applicant.. but just work really really hard and make sure you get the grades so that you dont have to worry about being a resit applicant!

    i had to book for the 27th because I can't go on the 13th, but i'm reallly excited too, my sister's doing Pharmacy at King's so I've seen the Waterloo campus which is reallly nice, guy's will be great toooo hopefully

    also what do you all think is the minimum work experience that you need to have in order to be considered? i'm a bit worried, because i've only got this summer before I apply and even if I do work experience for the whole of summer, i'm worried it still won't be enoughh, or will it? What shall I doo?

    If you liked Waterloo campus...Guy's will blow your mind, it's a beautiful environment that exudes 'the feeling' of medicine and dentistry

    unis know how hard it is to get work experience, just make sure u get work experience in a variety of areas but at a dental clinic for a minimum of 2 weeks.

    you can always say that you have planned to do work experience at blah blah in like christmas or something if you plan for it after the application deadline.
