    Hello!

    So I got my GCSE results last year which were OK. I got

    Maths: B (one mark off an A)
    English Language: B
    English Literature: A
    Biology: A
    Chemistry: A
    Physics: A
    RS: A
    History: A*
    Geography: A
    French: A
    Citizenship (short-course): B

    I thought these were good results but after looking at entry requirements for Dentistry, they want an A in English Language. My UKCAT score was not the best as well. I only got 615 av. Do you think I have a chance of getting into Dentistry? If so, which Uni's should I apply to? I was thinking of Plymouth, QMUL, Cardiff and Bristol. Thoughts pleaaasee!!!


    Also just some added info. I've been predicted 3 A's, I've got a week of work experience at a dental surgery and a lot of volunteer work as well as a research placement for 4 weeks.

    PLEASE SOMEONE HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hiya:hi: Sorry that nobody has got back to you on this.

    A Levels and UKCAT will be more important than GCSEs:yep: With your A in English Lit I can't see the English Lang B being a problem.:nah:

    PS I've requested that this thread be moved into a more suitable sub-forum so that you'll hopefully get the replies you're after.

    Need to think about somewhere other than Cardiff. Nail.your UKCAT in the summer and if that fails look at taking the BMAT.
