    I was just wondering what people are doing in terms of personal statement, how much do we have to change our PS from last year and what extra should we add

    hi, im also resitting and was wondering the same thing
    i think if u got offers last year then u just need to addd your gap year plans
    but if u struggled last yr to obtain any then starting it from scratch may be best

    does anyone know which dental schools consider resit applicants (including those that only accept ones with extenuating circumstances)?
    So far i only know off
    Manchester - A*AA
    Sheff -AAA but they give priority to 2yr applicants and then ppl who applied previously
    leeds - AAA + BMAT
    plymouth i think
    anywhere else??

    i think newcastle but only if the circumstances were very serious
    oh and apprently kings and Queen marys Belfast
    this may be helpful too

    [QUOTE=hello1345k;67826390]So kings accept resit applicants?[/QUOT

    Sorry I just saw this. I would advise you to phone/email a man called Dr Cabot at Kings (Dean of Admissions for Dentistry). I met him and he told me I could apply as a resit applicant and they would consider me. He also said that if i have any other queries i could email or call. He said if you call you can get directly to him. I think they usually only except people with extenuating circumstances

    I applied to manc, lpool, sheff and kings
    (I had mitigating circumstances and kings said they'd consider me (submitted a form before the deadline). Lpool said they'll consider the mitigating circumstances AFTER the deadline, so a bit risky but I preferred it to my other options of Bristol and Plymouth who readily accept resits
    What ukcat did u guys get?

    I'm reapplying for dentistry this year had two interviews queens and Liverpool and an offer from Liverpool, this year I applied to Leeds Liverpool (I took ill when exams started so it depends if they accept my circumstances) queens again (who have already confirmed they'll give me an interview this year) and Plymouth, I'm finding it difficult to keep up my motivation and I'm feeling quite low a lot, any tips to keep motivation high?
