Hey!
We got very similar results! I am applying as a graduate applicant though with a first in Biomed with 2360 and band 4 in SJT.
I am thinking of applying to QUB, Bristol, Cardiff and either Aberdeen or UCLAN.
I applied last year as well and got rejected since I got 2350 in UCAT.
Try to apply to unis that do not have UCAT cutoff. Avoid dental schools in Midlands (Manchester, Liverpool and Sheffield) since they look at band 4 and they automatically reject you. Also, Birmingham rejected me last year with a 2350 and that is why I will not apply to them again this year. Also, Scottish dental schools are quite UCAT heavy except Aberdeen that offers only the 4-year course.
Maybe consider Bristol, Cardiff, Queen Mary (I think last year's UCAT cutoff was around 2300 so you would be fine), Plymouth and Queen's Belfast.
Is this your first time applying?

Try Cardiff (double check this as 3 years ago you needed min 5 A* and I'm not sure if that's changed) and Leeds (get your BMAT booked)
You can try Aberdeen but most Scottish unis seem to favour Scots. Then of course there Plymouth that takes a low ukcat and Bristol that look at PS more .

Yeah , so this is my first time applying. I thought of bristol and birmingham as well- but now im not that certain about birmingham anymore since they have a bit of a higher expectation.But, do you know any other unis which don't have a cut off or at least arent that bothered about UCAT?
Thank you so much for replying as well
