    Cardiff applicants will have 5+ a* at gcse ( if you only got 3A*s at gcse what makes you think you will get anywhere near 5A* at a level lol), also may I ask what your a levels are?

    I haven’t heard anything yet! My friend last year got an interview invite the week before her interview, so probably 1st week of December at the earliest! There’s a Dentistry Whatsapp Group chat with lots of 2018 applicants for Dentistry including applicants to QUB (including myself) you are more than welcome to join! Pm me if you’re interested

    You say that, yet at IGCSE I acheived grades of 3A*'s, 5A's and 2B's yet achieved A*A*A at A level.
    In addition, this is in no way a personal dig at you personally but more a generic rant;
    The majority of dental applicants that I have come across are rather arrogant and over - confident; two characteristics that do not necessarily go hand in hand with a profession such as dentistry. Talking from a personal standpoint, I suggest you would be wise to change that attitude.

    They all use the UKCAT scores in different ways! Some unis rank applicants and have a cut off which varies annually! Others use it as an overall percentage of all your academic criteria! It’s worth going onto university websites and seeing how they use it!😁

    I am in no way overconfident, my point was a valid since if you can't get an A in say biology at GCSE it is highly unlikely you would do at A level. And by you presenting yourself as an anomaly doesn't form a good argument it just shows you are an exception. You are also making a sweeping generalisation about dental applicants when most likely you have met/talked to less than 1% of those applying for the course.
