    I have researched various graduate dentistry courses and they all require a biomedical sciences degree. Unfortunately my degree is an Arts Based one (and I did not study Chemistry at A-LEVEL ruling out the undergraduate dentistry option) so what would be the best course of action from here?

    My GCSEs: A* (R.E) 7As (English, Maths, Double Science, History, Business, Urdu) 2Bs (ICT and Gujerati!!)

    A-levels: Biology (A), English Lit and Lang (A), Environmental Science (A), General Studies (A)

    AS-Levels: Psychology (A), Mathematics (B)

    Degree: English Literature and Language at UCLan (I am aware my university does not have a high ranking on the league tables) (2:1)

    Masters: English Literature & Language (Merit)

    Thank you in advance!

    I think you are in a bad place here. You will need to get your chemistry and biology somewhere higher than GCSE. I believe that you should email every dental school you'd consider asking what you would have to do to get to the level required.
