    I want to become a dentist, but I retook some of my gcse's, now I am unsure if universities will take me ore not. I have heard that some universites are not concerned by retakes, I don't know what to think.
    Here are my grades:
    1 a*
    8 A
    1 B
    The B was in English lit.
    A levels
    Biology A Chemistry A Business A (As physics was an A)
    The courses I retook was one science and one English exam.
    Could anyone tell me if this is a problem, and any universities which will consider me. Thank you

    Email the admission people for universities you are thinking of applying to and tell them your situation. They are the best people to tell you to be honest.
