    I'm applying for dentistry and have my NCS in the Autumn half term (21st October)...

    Is it worth mentioning and going into detail about the NCS program on my statement?

    Depends on (1) how recent it was, and (2) how much you can talk about the skills you developed through it

    Nope. NCS would be a waste of time. Focus on your studies..

    Oh sorry, I misread. You could briefly say that you've applied for it (or that you're going to do it), but it is unlikely to add much more to your application. Don't not do it just cos of that tho, as it is still useful experience for things other than UCAS
