Hi all.

I'm a mature student (31) currently on an Access to Health Sciences course and am hoping to apply for the BDS at Newcastle for 2012 entry. I have been advised that I need to attain Distinction-level grades and so far I have gained solid Distinctions in all modules.

The problem I have is that the Access course does not contain a formal chemistry element, and instead has an "Immunopathology" module alongside the Applied Biology etc. I have spoken to the college and asked about doing a chemistry A-level in one year, and not only will they not allow me to do that, they stated that I would have to take a block of "4 or 5" A-levels if I want to do any at all, something that is just not feasible for me and would also totally defeat the object of doing the Access course.

What I was wondering is what any other mature students who have been in a similar position to myself have done, or if anybody else knows of a route to gain chemistry qualifications that is more feasible than doing a load of A-levels alongside it that I don't need?

Many thanks in advance to anybody who replies
