    Hi, I'm currenly in year 12, I have no idea where I'm going yet but visiting a lot of the universities in the next few weeks.
    GCSES: 6A*s 4As and 1 B (music smh)
    A level predictions (A,A,A,A) (Bio, chem, maths and economics) (I'm thinking about dropping one but my school prefers 4 and my grades are alright, however chemistry is my worst but the one I need so..) I swear for kings you need A star which I don't have so don't think I can apply there.
    Work experience (around 6 weeks, mostly in one practise but two days with different specialities, endodontist etc)
    Actually hate VR in UKCAT. My exams in August, I'm using medportal as revision.

    Hi im currently a dental student and what i did for the UKCAT and BMAT alongside questions was go to a course now im not saying they make or break your exam but i found mine particularly useful. it was run by Meddent prep and their prices were much cheaper than kaplan etc although they didn't go through a load of questions on the course rather they went through techniques on how to approach all styles of ukcat/bmat questions which i found more useful tbh. if you have any questions about dental school or the application process itself feel free to drop me a message. good luck!!!!
