Hi,
I recently sat the UCAT exams and got an average score 530 and a Band 1.
My predicted grades are A*AA
Since I also take part in K+ programme at kings college, I have a high chance of getting into the enhanced dentistry programme.
But with such a low UCAT score is it still worth applying to dentistry. Thanks

My daughter got a low UKCAT score but got an interview at Dundee and is off there in 3 weeks. She had a good, all round personal statement and likely had a good interview.

Yes, you will have a chance. I know of somebody with a similar profile to you. You don't lose anything by giving it a go!

Really? Wat did they get in their ucat if u don’t me asking ? Also if one was to apply to the enhanced dentistry support is it fine if the ucat score is low

I would strongly encourage you to apply for the enhanced support program, as it is (most likely) aimed at people with a lower score. They applied for the EMDP with a score in the 500s. So I think you will have a chance - it's not going to be a definite yes, but if your personal statement is strong, it's likely not to be a definite no. E-mail admissions, ask them if they have a threshold for enhanced support/dentistry. I don't think they do.

I study medicine personally, however I have quite a few friends who got in via gateway. I was quite surprised to see that King's took somebody with 497.5 for the EMDP - have a look on Google for "what do they know". Hopefully it will give you some confidence!

Hi everyone

I am on a gap year and really want to do dentistry. however i have received a very low ucat of 2160(540) and band 1 SJT. Please can somebody advise me on which universities to apply to as I am so passionate about dentistry.
I have completed 1 week dentistry, 1 week GP, 1 week pharmacy work ex and 1 yr care home, 1 yr hospital volunteering.

Alevels- A*AA
Gcses- 3As (sciences) 7Bs

I was thinking Manchester but other than that I have no idea.

It’s not all about UKCAT btw, like it also depends on ur personal statement, experience, the way you present yourself in the interview etc...

ive checked the kings one but im not from london and its only eligible for state schools in london i think. ive just checked the bristol programme you are referring to but students with aab or above or a in chemistry are not eligible
do u know of any other entry routes?
