    Hey,

    I'm currently at King's College London, my A Levels were A* Chem, A Biology, A Maths, A AS Physics. I was taking 5 a levels (Full A level in physics and further maths) but I dropped them when I got my offer.

    Feel free to ask any other questions

    (PS due to deadlines I may take a while to respond but will try to get back to you ASAP)

    When I was applying that would have been fine, if you're in doubt however I'd suggest calling up anonymously and asking!

    Guy's campus is where the dentists, medics and biomed students are all based and it's right next to London bridge. It's a lovely campus given it's central location and there's lots of stuff to do nearby.

    As for the course structure, it's very good for early clinical exposure. You'll be seeing your first perio patients in 2nd year, doing your first fillings, extractions and dentures in 3rd year and as you progress you get to do more and more complex treatments. It can be a bit intense but it's rewarding when it all ties together.

    The accomodation is a bit tricky as you can only get uni accomodation for one year and flats can be quite expensive but if you're willing to look around you can find some quite nice places close to uni!
