    I have always had my mind set on Dentistry and recently received my GCSE results :
    English Literature A
    English language B
    RE A*
    Maths C
    Core Science B
    Additional C
    History B
    French B
    Health and Social care B

    I am disappointed with these results and realised that they don't meet the minimum GCSE Requirements for dentistry degrees :/ Is it possible with AAA at a level and a strong UKCAT score, personal statement and experience my grades could be over looked?

    Or could I not follow on to start my As levels this year but instead a year to resit some of my GCSEs and then start? Will this affect my university application

    I would appreciate any help and advice

    I don't think you need to resit your GCSEs but you have a C in add science but don't worry. Most unis have an entry requirement of C and above for the sciences and you have good grades for Maths and English. If you work hard at A Level then you can easily get those grades. Also for dentistry you will need a strong UKCAT score together with PS and also the admissions tutors look at how well you perform in your interviews.

    Thank you !! I have lost sleep worrying and I enrol at college in a few days. But all the uni entry requirements I checked say 5A/A*s or more? Will they not straight up reject me. My maths is a C not B sorry :s
