    Hey guys.

    I wanted to ask whether universities accept you, if you retook your AS year?

    Can you still get on to a dentistry course at any type of universtiy that does it?

    Say if you messed up your first year badly like due to laziness but in your retake year you get 4 A's? Is it possible to get into a university and study dentistry? I know that medicine don't accpet retakes atleast I think, however is this the same case with dentistry?

    Thanks.

    Yeah they usually accept them if you resit within the two A-level years (Yr 12 and 13). When I applied first time I didn't declare my AS grades (just showed my predicted A2) because my school doesn't cash them in, therefore they had no idea what I was on, let alone if I resat any . If you don't get the grades after A-levels and resit, some universities do not consider you at all. (I am in that category and received two offers though so it's possible!) Best thing to do is ring the universities and double check
