    Hi, Im in year 12 and im just wondering how important references are from your teachers. Obviously we have no access to them and our teachers will write this for us but how important are these when applying for dentistry for example at Kings. Do they take it as a big factor or is it not that important.

    Many thanks

    My daughter gave her referee points about qualities the unis were looking for and was able to see her reference. She asked for one sentence to be altered too.Teachers want their students to get onto courses so they will br helpful.

    Kings look at everything from reference, PS to grades, ukcat score etc. Everything is an equal factor I think. But obviously a shining reference would help so make sure your teachers like you and your grades are good!
