    Hi all! I haven't seen a Cardiff Dentistry thread being made,so I thought I'd start one for us.

    I had hoped this thread can be a support centre and discussion for those who have applied for the Carsiff entry, over the coming months.

    All the best! X

    You might want to email the dentistry admissions tutor explaining your situation because I know that some unis have a minimum amout of GCSEs they want applicants to have done

    I'm not very sure about their requirements for GCSE's. My GCSE's are not very good at all.

    Yes, i think they do! For example I came from Cathays High School, a high school in Cardiff that counts as bottom 40%. However it doesn't play a huge part in the choosing process for applicants. Hope that helps. Also you might want to email them just incase they may consider that.

    I'm not sure if Cardiff look at individual scores for UKCAT. However, if they do STJ 1 is very good well done! I got STJ 2. Good luck

    I'm pretty sure it's only for 'tiebreak' situations

    Hia! I got an offer for Dentistry last year from Cardiff but because of some medical problems I wasnt able to take my exams. I was able to keep my offer and I'm doing my exams this year and hopefully getting the grades to go to Cardiff for 2017 entry. If you guys have any questions about anything just ask! ☺️ Good luck

    Yeah was bit of a process but was so happy and relived! At the end of January. I know a few people who are studying Dentistry at Cardiff and they really enjoy it. I think it helps with the workload being such a demanding course
