    Hey guys,



    I'm just starting this thread because I was wondering if anyone is considering applying to Kings for dentistry 2016 entry.


    It would be great talking to everyone; so please comment your stats, current AS subjects, work experience, UKCAT preparation and other universities you're planning to apply below.

    So these are my stats:
    GCSE- 9A*AB
    AS - AAAA
    A2 - A*A*A*
    Ukcat - 690 band 2
    Work experience - total of 5 weeks
    Other unis - QM, Manchester, Newcastle or Plymouth

    My Stats:
    GCSE- 5A* 3A 1B
    AS-AAAA
    A2 predicted-A*A*A* (hopefully)
    UKCAT 622.5 band 2

    Yeah, I'm considering Kings but I'm not too sure I'll apply as I hear they like high UKCAT and I have 622.5.

    But on their website they say they don't have a cut off.

    So I'm wondering if anyone has every got an interview with similar stats to me?

    Isn't the BMAT more science based, so I guess if your science knowledge is good then I think that you should be fine. But I'm not entirely sure of what the BMAT entails.
