I cant decide, is my position jepodised because of it? Is there/ what is the cut off score? I think its slightly below average but will that affect me a lot? Is the dentistry dream likely or not?

I took the test a few days ago and got: 2550 with and average score of 637.5

You'll be fine with that. Just apply to universities that don't put a lot of emphasis like Bristol, Liverpool or Plymouth. I know many people who got interviews with slightly lower than that but it also depends on the percentiles too.

Different universities but different weightings on the UKCAT scores - some universities will look at the personal statement more than the UKCAT whereas some universities the converse. It entirely depends on where you're applying. 637.5 is a decent score, and probably average. However, you'll have to wait and see until the percentiles are released

Does the band one is SJ help out a lot or not at all. Do unis consider it? Will it boost my a ukcat and if so by how much. Perhaps relatively by points????

I got SJ band 2 and received 3 offers, I think band 1 and 2 universities accept. Band 3 isn't preferable

But will a band 1 over a 2 be a deciding factor

Lets say two students did exactly the same everwhere else apart from ukcat. Who do they accept:

S1 - Av 680 band 2
S2 - Av 650 band 1

It's impossible to say whether it'd be a deciding factor because applicants personal statements are never identical, and they're more important that SJT
