    Do you think they will raise the requirements for 2012 entry to A,* A, A or more?

    I don't think so, even for medicine, they're not changing, because most med schools have raised from AAB to nearly all of them becoming AAA. I don't know about dentistry, but medicine and dentistry both have relatively the same competition. At the moment, only Cambridge is asking for A*AA for medicine, so generally I think it wouldn't change for dentistry either.

    most universities have just changed from AAB to AAA for 2011 entry so its very very unlikely they'll go to A*AA for 2012 entry

    And given the rise in tuition fees I suspect applicant numbers will diminish so no I don't expect then to change from AAB/AAA.

    Well, I think they should be raised to A* A* A*. If you cant achieve this grades, you need to find another path in life.

    I can't talk for dentistry, but certain medical schools next year are going up to A*AA. Birmingham for example :/

    Honestly dude, dentistry is a waste of time, it should be for those people who fail to get EEE

    It's obvious that you're getting EEE, isn't it. Stop wasting time on the forum, and maybe you'll stop wasting life.

    I doubt they will be raising the dentistry requirements beyond AAA in the near future....it is more of a case of meeting this requirement and then excelling at everything else required to be a competent dentist.

    Why would you say this? It clearly isn't a waste of time.

    I reckon that AAA will be the standard offer for both medicine and dentistry for a very long time yet....although those unis who consider themselves to be elite (which given the nature of the 2 degrees is silly) will raise it to A*AA or whatever

    No, because that will leave only people with good academics...But unis are looking for high UKCAT, good personality etc. Cambridge requires A*AA for medicine though, because they probably are more in favour of academics than personality.
