    I saw a similar thread was made for Medicine applicants, and so I thought I would make one for Dentistry too.

    Is there anyone else in a similar situation to me?

    Was going to go for Leeds, but it needs BMAT and I ****ed it up last year.

    Manchester, Sheffield, Plymouth and Queen Mary Belfast

    I don't know how you feel, but I think this is going to be a pretty hard year.

    Nah, my friend resat and goes to plymouth for dentistry.

    I emailed Queen's and they said that they would prefer candidates that didn't, but said that they do recognise resit candidates too, but they are selected after.

    Yeah, I thought that what if I go through this year, and get no place at the end. I doubt I will get many interviews :/

    I'm in the same situation! I emailed Plymouth about retakes and they said that in order for them to consider you, you need to have a minimum of ABB in the first attempt of A-Levels.

    I'm applying to Sheffield and Leeds, still not sure about the other 2 choices. Which other unis do you think we'll have the best chance at?
