    I'm an engineer and now want to become a dentist.
    I've had a look around and it seems Manchester university may accept me as they do not specify on their website about GCSE reatakes on the pre-dental course. I then will be aiming to complete the BDS.

    DO you think i'll have a chance?? Since now i'm 28yrs. I just want to hear a voice/view of different opinions.

    I think you've got a pretty strong chance. Since you have a degree, they would probably look at that since it's your highest qualification. It should be worth looking for Universities that have Dentistry as an undergraduate course. You would need a minimum of two weeks work experience in a dental surgery though I think.
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
