    You could take a gap year and reapply next year. Or you can see if you can get a dentistry place through clearing when you get your results.

    Did your predicted A-level grades meet the requirements of the unis you applied to? If not then you will have to work hard to gain the correct grades at A-level and then reapply. Otherwise, you might be better off going for degree with something to do with human sciences and then applying for dentistry at graduate level. Do you know why you have been unsuccessful?

    As far as I know there are no graduate level/foundation yrs available for dentistry. Your best bet should you be rejected to all 4 is to contact each of your uni admissions tutor individually and try to talk your way in (long shot but worth a try if you've got your heart set on this) and if that fails take a year out and spend the time working in a dentists/dental hospital/orthodontist - this will hugely increase your changes next year.

    There is definitely the possibility of applying for dentistry as a graduate (they do this at King's College London to name but a few) but obviously it is more competitive.

    Ah right, have you received any offers? If any are from notts, bristol, imperial or southampton (or even oxford/york for biochem)...then I know about them (apart from York, which cruely rejected me!)

    How would you know about them ? Unfortunately I have had zero offers from any of the unis you mentioned. I have so far gotten offers from Oxford and King's College London for medicine and an interview coming up for UCL (also applied to Imperial who didn't even bother sending me a confirmation!)

    I went to their interviews/did research and had offers :rolleyes:. Well done for the oxford offer!!!! Which college? I applied to Teddy Hall for biochem as an insurance and had the self-satisfying option of turning them down . I'm in my first year at bristol, the work is really starting to get on top of us all now, they cram so much into the first year!

    Ah cool It was for Worcester College - Teddy Hall is supposed to be really nice (my friend applied there but got rejected) - how come you didn't apply for Medicine at Ox? Ah yes, I have the huge workload to look forward to when I start uni

    Because of the course structure and the fact I wanted to intercalate law at bristol. You did really well to get in, now make sure you get those A-Level grades!
