    In my IGCSEs (CIE) I got 2As, 3Bs and 3Cs
    Right now im doing my AS levels (IAL Edexcel) in Maths, Chemistry and Biology
    Im hoping to get AAB
    And for the next year planning to do A2 somewhere in the UK.
    My question is, will I be accepted in any university in London for Dentistry?

    Due to the very high number of applicants and the fierce competition for Dentistry. Universities will always look at your I/GCSE grades. This means applicants are basically required to get very high GCSE grades to make their application as competitive as others. Unfortunately, your 3Bs and 3 Cs do not reflect this standard. That does not mean however that you are completely barred from Medical School. But right now you are at a disadvantage.

    Your best hope is to do as best as you can at you A-Levels and achieve the top grades possible. Also, Medicine and Dentistry, in most cases, expect applicants to have taken 4 AS Levels, and 3 A2. Also as a consequence of the high competition for Medicine. The 4th subject can be in realistically anything ranging from Music to Physics.

    You also need to get Work Experience (Preferably in a Dental Practise) and you will need to get a voluntary job over the summer such as working in a Mental Institute or Care Home etc.

    I don't want to put you off, but you have a long path to follow. Also, if you dont get into dentistry. Don't be disheartened. Consider going into something medically related such as Genetics. And then apply to Medicine as Graduate entry? Not only is the course shorter, but you'll know lots of the stuff included anyway!

    your gcses pretty much rule out Kings, birmingham, Barts (Queen marys), bristol,liverpool,manchester,new castle and sheffield
    AAB is okay at AS but you'll need to get at least AAA at A2 and high UCKAT score to make up for your gcses
    you also need to do a fourth A level at least to AS

    you cannot sit International A level in the UK so its not possible to carry on your IAL AS levels here so i suggest you complete them before coming
    also make sure you get good work experience and do some form of volunteering that you can talk about at interview
    best of luck x
