    Are you still able to able to do dentistry if you don't get the required grades? Like are you able to resit in the summer or do you have to get the grades on the first try? Because I have a feeling I have done quite badly in these January exams? If I don't get the grades does that mean dentistry is closed off to me entirely?

    I don't want to answer this because I'm not sure, but I'm going to watch this topic closely. It relates to me too.

    Most dental uni's require you to get at least AAB in two years, you can still apply if you retake years but it will be harder to get in and you may not even be called to interview.

    What happens if you retake January modules in June? Would that harm your chances and make them reject you because you did not get the grades on the first sitting or does first sitting just apply to the whole year?

    I believe that's fine, because unit retakes are fine! As long as it is done in the normal 2 year period!
    Good luck.

    As long as you do the A=levels within two years you are fine (you can resit as many times as you want within the two years). You get into problems if you take longer than the two years.
