Hey guys,
I've recently completed my UCAT for which I'd practiced 3 weeks for... but unfortunately I did terrible on the SJT (BAND 4). I was consistently achieving BAND 1s using Medify so I have no clue as to how I managed to get this result.(Maybe just a bad day?) My overall score is 2490 which I think is a bit below the average (2600?) so I was also wondering about my chances of getting into a uni for Dentistry. I think BAND 4 is also the lowest you can achieve and considered highly unethical so would they automatically reject me?
Thanks in advance

It'll limit the universities you can apply to, some don't take Band 4 but for St. Georges (and maybe a couple others), they don't take the SJT into account I believe
But after my UCAT and work experience, I don't think I'll be applying for medicine anymore.

As long as you apply strategically, there's no reason why you can't get to interview. Is BMAT an option for you?

That's really not that bad, make sure it doesn't affect your confidence and do well in your a levels. Also, try to look at universities that don't look at SJT there are a few. TBH there are few universities that have accepted people with high 500 for an interview, try to research well if your personal statement is good you stand a good chance. Try to research. There is always the option of BMAT.

Appreciate all the replies on this. I'll take all the info and on-board and hopefully it turns out fine in the end. Also, BMAT isn't needed for getting into Dentistry.
