I'm looking to apply for Dentistry but for the Gateway to Dentistry course at Bristol and the Enhanced Dentistry Programme at Kings College, I was just wondering if they accept like a lower band score for these courses because they're aimed for those with lower academic criteria. There is not much detail about the ucat on their website sooooo just wondering if anyone knows? thank youuuu

They dont have a cut off point for gateway and I doubt the ucat will be high, if you've scored about average I think you'll be fine!

Hi, I'm also looking into applying into a gateway dentistry course but I ended up scoring a 585 average with band 2 for sjt for my ucat. Is this too low for the gateway course?

For Bristol, you need to look at the 'Admissions Statement' - there is a link at the very bottom of the course page on the website.

As Gateway courses are 'widening participation' courses and have very specific entry criteria, far fewer people are eligible to apply than for the 5 year courses. This means that, if you are eligible, the UCAT cut-off will be lower, and you will have a much higher chance of an interview. Apply.

Thanks for your reply
I am thinking of applying to the Bristol Gateway course for dentistry as I am eligible to apply, but I'm just kind of demotivated because the admissions statement say that they rank students from their UCAT score and I feel like my score isn't good enough :-///

Sadly I'm not eligible for the kcl gateway course because I didn't do my GCSEs in a school in Greater London, but I wish you the best of luck for your application Good luck!

I got 2220 overall . It’s so bad I know (due to personal issues, had a week to prepare) my predictions are AAA but my maths gcse is bad I got a 5 , everything else was 7. I can’t get into Bristol as my predictions are too high. What are my chances ? Please, any help I’m loosing my sanity.

Then its pointless applying for the Gateway course as its for widening participation only - max grade predictions ABB.

You'll get an automatic rejection.

Widening participation can be based on your location, and state school too. Bristol is an automatic rejection I know that, but what about Dundee gateway.
