    Are dentistry summer schools really essential for applying to a good uni? And if so, does anybody know of any summer schools/courses for year 12 students that are still open? Most of the ones I looked at closed months ago. I would have looked earlier but I was still uncertain as to what I would study at uni. Now that I've heard my calling I feel like its too late😞. Any advice?

    Completely unnecessary and over the top. Focus on results, work experience and having a rounded application. Be aware of current topics / advancements in Dentistry but do not bother with this sort of stuff. I may be cynical but they are simply to generate money and are absolutely not required for a successful application.

    Ah thank you, that's a relief, but would you mind telling me what a 'rounded application' means?
    What do you think a rounded application means?
