    I'm applying for dentistry next year and was wondering if anyone knows which of the UK dental schools are hardest/easiest to get into. I've heard all sorts of rumours like Queen Mary being hardest academically, and Leeds/Liverpool being hard as well due to the highest numbers of applicants. But when I tried to google it I couldn't find much at all.
    Does anyone have any idea??

    They are all as hard as each other!! But obviously some will be easier for you personally ro get into because of youre strengthals so if you are academic spmewhere thay expects high academics thus making it "hard to get into" is not really hard for you if that makes sense haha

    Completely depends on your application.
    QMUL one of the hardest academically, leeds probably the easiest academically but the hardest in terms of work experience/volunteering etc.
    They're all AAA though

    I think they'll get less applicants sure. Dunno about it being easier to get into, they'll still want long term work experience. Leeds is a risky option IMO.

    Which do you think are least risky then? I reckon I'll skip leeds and go for sheffield, newcastle, manchester and kings?
    Just depends on your application, honestly couldn't tell you.

    Leeds is asking for BMAT this year but then you won't be put in disadvantage for ur score this year because it's a trial period for them. They will be assess ur application with the old method. ( so yeaa long term work exp and voluntary work in PS)

    Not sure how likely you are to get a place with AAB. Maybe easier now with the 9K fees, idk.

    I doubt there are just as many people applying to Dundee now as there were when they charged £1800. But I could be wrong.

    That was years ago! There would be loads less people applying anyway.

    It was only 3 years ago, the numbers of UCAS applications decreased quite a lot, for specific courses I am not sure though.

    I would be surprised if that were true for dentist, but who knows it might be.
