Nah, I was just making sure that you knew you were in the dentistry forum before you started giving advice based on your knowledge of medical admissions . You know what sort of reaction people get if they make unfounded statements in the medicine forum, I just wasn't sure if the dentists were as pissy :p:. As to your question, I have no idea if they do or not, but that's because I don't know anything about the requirements at different unis for dentistry

Nah- we're nice.

I was thinking how dead this forum is lately. It needs a bit of firing up I think. I might try being nasty :p:

As to UKCAT requirements- i need to brush up myself, as it wasn't around in my days! I think I'll leave it to the more newer dental students.

We're normally nice in the medicine forum, it's just that recently there's been quite a few posts by people with no idea what they're talking about, which tends to get people a bit wound up :p:. I'm guilty of being harsh at times too

Since when? I'm sure they do require the UKCAT and place quite a bit of emphasis on it...

(Original post by kcl website- dentistry section)
Other academic requirements
Aptitude testing
UK CAT required
Just check individual university requirements on their websites!

(Now comes my time to be nasty!!, but I reckon you were just offering!)

I heard it was to be taken, but they put no weighting on it unless it is a tie-breaker between two candidates.

Kings definitely do. I know for a fact that leeds and birmingham don't because i applied there this year, UNLESS they changing their mind and they are considering using it for next year?

It's best to check the individual requirements on the websites/prospectuses lol but yeh i don't think the UKCAT is THAT important, as it is quite new, just do your best

I didn't use them and I did pretty well (I averaged around 770) then again there are plenty of other people who swear by them. Then again, I didn't do any preparation until about half an hour before my test
