Get more work ex for Manchester. They require minimum 2 weeks. If you can't get it, then write you did 2 weeks on your PS.

Hello,
I'm interested in applying to Sheffield, was there like a cutoff of ucat scores? what ucat was the average score of applicants and does Sheffield put strong emphasis on ucat because I didn't score well.

Thank you
Thank you

Hey,
Im confused as where to apply for 2020 dentistry.
I got 3A* and 7A , predicted AAA, UCAT 2480 (av 620) (so cardiff, Birmingham (due to IGCSE: cardiff most applicants have 5A*, Birmingham required A* in bio) QML and Kings (due to predictions they need A*AA) are out of the question) I have three weeks work experience at different specialities and done community service too.
Im worried as my UCAT score is low.
Was debating between Bristol and Sheffield as one of my choices but Bristol takes UCAT as 35% and I heard Sheffield requires higher UCAT scores which is better for me?
Could anyone please advise where to apply.
Thank you

Are 6A*s good for Cardiff? Also what did you mention in your personal statement?

Also how did your interview go? Please can you give us any good tips for when/if we get to that stage?

I'm sorry there are so many questions

It was my daughter who applied. She got 8A* and 633 UK at and got an interview at Cardiff. She didnt get in but they gave written feedback. Interestingly they commented that she wasnt wearing a suit (not all negative as it said she was well presented) it was her first interview. Her mmi at Leeds was successful. And shes now at Newcastle in her 3rd year.

As to personal statement, she modelled it on what Leeds uni advised on their open day. Made sure she put in examples for each point.

I have Cardiff as one of my choices so I was wondering what your statistics were in terms of grades, UCAT score and work experience.
