    So rn I'm studying chemistry and biology at a2. I was planning on studying pharmacy but recently thought about trying to apply for dentistry. I know that the ucas deadline for medical
    science courses is in a week and it's a little too late to try to apply for one now, but would it be wise for me to do so?

    Is there any other route into dentistry now that I am considering it while already being close to the deadline for applying through ucas?

    Most med schools don't accept people that have taken subjects over 3 years, even those that do take resits specific you have to have got a B in the first sitting and an A* in the second. This can usually only be in 1 subject.

    Exeter don't discriminate against retakes and have no specific rules regarding resits
