    Cardiff University is one of the universities I want to attend to study Dentistry however I got my GCSE English remark back today as I was only one mark off an A but my mark stayed at a B yet the entry requirement for Cardiff is an A at GCSE English. In all 12 of my other GCSEs I got A's so do you think this grade will prevent Cardiff from even considering my application?

    You need a minimum of 5 A* for Cardiff anyway.

    Well it may have changed but when I went to the open day with my daughter last year they said 5 A* was the minimum accepted. Plus you don't have the required A in English so it would be a waste of a choice imo.
