    Hi, I really want to study dentistry at university but a lot of the courses require you to have a B in English language and I got a C. My a levels are going pretty well I'm on track to get AAA.
    I wanted to ask what I could do to get around this so that I could still go to unis that require Higher grades than I have at GCSE

    As far as I'm aware there is no way around this. You can either apply to university anyway and hope that they will overlook your C in English, or you can redo your GCSE and try to get a B. It might be worth talking to the admission tutor about this.

    Not true - high UKCAT score can make up for lower GCSE's, although a C is quite low.
