    Hi i'm hoping to apply for dentistry this year and I am going to apply for the ESDP as well as the traditional dentistry course at Kings.

    I was wondering if anyone has applied for the ESDP before and what kind of grades King's want for this course.

    Thanks

    ESDP: AAA ( however, if you're doing well in school and get an abnormal UKCAT score then they'll allow you with ABB)
    1. if you go to a private or grammar school or a very high achieving state school then you cannot apply here.
    2. super easy to get into for an interview, but super hard to get an offer

    A*AA for traditional course
    1. super easy to get into for an interview
    2. very competitive after (they want the elites)

    Hi thanks for that!
    Also, do you know approximately how many people get accepted into each course?
    Thanks

    No worries!


    And I'm not sure, I know for sure it's around 150-200.

    Kings accept the highest no. of dental students in the UK.

    Hi, I am 16 years old and just started my A Levels and hope to get into the ESDP. Do you think they will run it for 2018 entry (silly question I know). I have always wanted to become a dentist and my school isnt the best in terms of results. I did pretty well at GCSEs and hope to do the same at A Level.
