    You can apply for grad entry if you've got a science-related career, however its more competitive if you do so. Typical offers for re-applicants are AAA anyway so you should be ok. Not sure about ABB, i highly doubt you'd get accepted for that but I do know some people who still got accepted in some rare cases. Most unis want an A in Bio and Chem.

    Good luck anyway, have you already applied or are you applying for 2009 entry?

    I have already applied for Chem eng but was looking at dentistry if i got higher grades. So now if i dont get my grades i think i will go back and resit get AAA and then take maths so i will have a 2nd as which will bring my offering to AAA in Pe, Chem and Bio at alevel and C and A in computing and maths at as level. Would that be ok aswell as if i got some exp in a practice?

    Yeah i think work exp is key when applying. At least 2 weeks is a requirement for most unis

    yeah work experience is vital, ideal would be in NHS practice aswell as Private sectors I think.

    thats fine- i resat all of my chemistry and maths as-levels because i did so badly in them.

    it says in the prospectuses from what i remember that you have to get your a-levels within your 2 years so you can resit whatever you want within those two years. if you resit after the two years you are at a major disadvantage

    doesn't matter what i got- it was rubbish and ended up me getting rubbish predicted grades and after resitting it all got AAB in the two years.

    if you look through the forums then you will find absolutely loads of information on what you can do.
