    Hello all

    I'm applying too for the first time for the GEP. Applied to Kings, Liverpool, UCLAN and Cardiff undergrad.
    Predicted a 2:1 in medical science
    A levels AAB
    GCSEs 4A* 5A 2B
    UKCAT average 750 (hoping this will be good for Kings!)
    Getting slightly nervous about the UCLAN exam, when do you think we will hear, November?

    Hi there,

    I was wondering the same thing about UCLAN! How long can they leave it do you reckon? I think around 200 sit the exam so I suppose when they have managed to get through and rank all the applications?

    This thread is from last year, looking through gives a good indication of when we can expect to hear back from certain universities!

    Hi everyone,
    I was wondering if I as a dentist who graduated outside UK with a BDS degree be eligible to apply for Graduate entry?
    I know it doesn't sound right but as a non UK graduate it's almost next to impossible to get the GDC license to work as a dentist in UK. So the only option for me is to study the whole thing again in UK.
    Do you guys think that I stand a good chance for getting accepted? If so, what happens with the funding?
    My first degree was outside UK and was self funded. Would I be able to apply for Student Finance?
    Any suggestions would be highly appreciated.
    Regards.

    Hi,

    I think the best thing to do would be to give the universities a call and ask directly. Obviously you're a good candidate!
    Are you from the UK originally? If so then you will be eligible for student finance

    You have missed the application deadline this year, so keep on trying with the GDC, perhaps there's a shorter route
    Good luck

    Thanks for your reply.
    I have already contacted the universities but haven't heard anything back yet. I hope that it's good news when i finally get a reply.
    I'm not from UK but a family member of EU citizen so i would be treated as an EU citizen in regards to Student finance application.
    The only thing I am concerned about is whether my previous education would be taken into account or not when applying for SF loan as from what I know an applicant can't apply for loan if it's a second degree even if the first degree was self financed. However, I'm not too sure about SF loan if it's a Graduate entry programme.
    As for GDC, I'm still trying to sort the registration out but it seems like it's not going to happen.
    Dentistry for me has been a long ride and I just don't want to give up even though I'm 29 already. I just hope there's a way out of this for me to actually start practising my profession

    Don't worry I got mine on the 4th last year so if it doesn't come by then, then I would recommend calling up the uni to ask
