    Hey...
    4A* 5A at GCSE
    737 UKCAT band 1
    A*A*A* prediction
    A in AS physics and A* in a alevel Italian both achieved

    I emailed Liverpool and they said:
    When shortlisting for interview we would first check that the academic criteria has been met. For applicants who fulfil this criteria (minimum A level and GCSE requirement in place), we would then look at their UKCAT scores in conjunction with their Personal Statement (which we score). We would then interview the top 300 students from this group and an offer would then be dependent on the applicant’s interview score.

    Your high UKCAT would be very good for Glasgow and Barts. Barts are 50:50 UKCAT, UCAS tariff and with A*A*A prediction you'd stand a very good chance. Sheffield also looks heavily at the UKCAT, shortlisting applicants with the highest scores. Liverpool takes into account the personal statement.

    Where are you from? I am from Northern Ireland and always had interest applying to Glasgow until I found out that for Dentistry approximately 73/90 places are for Scottish applicants so for me the narrow chance of getting a place changed my mind! I found out this information on the Glasgow University Website - in the Dentistry Admissions and also phoned and it was confirmed by admissions! Your stats are great so wherever you apply I’m sure you will have an excellent chance!

    Are you an applicant for this year? If so where have you applied and what are your stats? 🙂

    You have great stats so I would go for it! I know someone from here who got an offer before! 😀 unfortunately for myself I thought it was too risky but it would have been a top choice of mine!

    Most dental schools hold their interviews from December to March! It might be worth looking at the Liverpool admissions info or sending admissions an email! 😀
