I have always wanted study dentistry and I've recently received my GCSEs grades which are
English lit A
English lang B
Health and social care B
I am disappointed and realised these grades don't meet the uni requirements for GCSE grades on dentistry degrees. With an amazing UKCAT score and personal statement, work experience etc could these grades be over looked?
Should I take a year to re sit some of my GCSEs then start AS the following year or start my AS and re sit maths in November? Also will this affect my university application
Any help and advice would be appreciated

you shouldn't resit the gcse exams, as some unis wont accept that. Your gcse grades is on the lower side and there will be many people applying for dentistry with a higher grade. But you can still do it. If you do well in your a level, and have good work experience and personal statement, then you can still get into dentistry. Don't give up, you still have hope as some unis doesn't look at gcse grades.
What a levels are you doing. Just realised this now, but you may have to resit your maths gcse.
