Should I consider grad entry dentistry? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I am currently completing my last year of a levels, expecting AAB at the end and am applying to study biological sciences next year. I don't study chemistry so I can't apply for undergrad dentistry, and was wondering if it would be silly to plan doing a related undegrad degree (if bioscience is related?) and then apply for dentistry afterward. I mainly want to know if this is true so that I know if it's a potential option, not something I'm dead set on. I know it would be a bit of a waste for me to do 2 years studying just chemistry to get the a level, but it would be an extra 2 years of uni otherwise (which I don't mind) and also extra tuition for those years. Does doing a related degree first make getting onto dentistry any easier (or harder)? Has anyone found it easier having done something related first?

    Basically, is doing 3 years of Bsc biological sciences, getting some dentistry experience, getting at least a 2:1 and then applying for dentistry a bad idea?

    Thank you
