    Hello, i am thinking of maybe doing dentistry at queen mary's but im unsure if my GCSE grades are good enough for it. I would like to know generally what GCSE grades the students doing dentistry at the moment have achieved so i get an idea of whether im likely to be accepted in the future.

    To be in a competitive position, ideally you need to have atleast a few more A*s, however, these grades are not the end of the world, and you can still get in. Providing that you do well in your UKCAT and in Year 12 to get amazing predicted grades. When the time comes, if you need help for UKCAT, I'll be able o help (I got 782.5 Band 1)

    Look into unis that dont have a massive weighting on GCSEs, I'm pretty sure that Barts doesn't even look at GCSEs, but I'm no sure about Dentistry.

    Good luck!

    Barts have a 50:50 weighting on the ukcat: everything else.

    So as the user above said, if you can work hard and get amazing AS results with good predictions, good UKCAT and good personal statement then you do stand a chance for Queen Mary
