    HELLO TO ALL...
    i want to do dentistry and im at my second year of a-level... i got unsuccessful to study dentistry at Kings which i was disappointed, the main reason for my rejection was because (i think) my predicted grades were low (BBBB).. after my january results my predicted grades are now AABB so my school wrote a refrence to Kings Uni and explaining the fact that my predicted grades have now changed due TO MY RECENT RESULTS.. do i have chance to get in?..do they consider applicant like me?????
    thanx

    I think by now it's unlikly that they would reconsider your application (the vast majority of interviews will have been carried out and all the offers given). Your best bet now is to take a gap year and reapply after A-levels. If you do that though, don't just use it as a year off, - do something constructive - work, get more work experience, travel, - it can work to your advantage in your personal statement.

    you could go through clearing, although i dont know if you can reapply to the same college through UCAS extra.

    the hell is the point of being a dentist, anyway?

    Was there any point in saying that?

    And to nazy; - did you only apply to Kings or to other dental school aswell? Would you only consider going to Kings to study dentistry? I've heard that Kings dental school is one of the hardest to get into due to its popularity, though I'm not sure if this is true, - perhaps you may have more luck elsewhere. Manchester had places in clearing for dentistry last year, though I don't know how likely it is that it'll happen again this year. Realistically, you should set your sights or reapplying next year.
