    So hello potential medics/student roomers, i have recently got my 4th and final rejection for medicine (exeter,barts,soton,bristol w interview). I am in year 13 down in the south west and in 2 months will have finished my a-levels. I am unsure of what to do next year as i can now not go to uni, do i try again for medicine or try for the equally stimulating dentistry course. I am predicted A*AA (maths,chem,bio) and can safely say that i will get AAA if i work how i am atm (touch wood/i hope). The questions i would like to ask are..

    is there anyone in a similar situation to me?
    is dentistry as competitive as medicine?
    would my grades take me to dental school?
    what are the perks of dentistry over medicine?
    what is the usual applicant profile for a succesful dental applicant?
    would i be in a worse position as a re-applicant?

    If there is anyone who can relate to me, or give me advice, i would be very grateful

    if anything dentistry is more competitive than medicine, a similar number of applicants for much fewer places. perks over medicine are similar if not more pay for much less work and more friendly and sociable hours.

    Medicine is a much more flexible degree to have.
