'Under the terms of the Dentists Act 1984 no person under the age of 21 may be granted a degree or licence in dentistry.'

Since it takes five years to graduate from dentistry in the UK, I guess that at some universities you will be able to start at 16 but I'm not sure.

No I didn't mean that, I don't even know how you could think I meant that from my reply- I meant younger people that go to uni early due to being very brainy and jumping years ahead so I dont know what interpretation you got! : S

What I meant was you have to be 18 unless you have done the required exams at an earlier age.

And your post was rather rude

I thought you have be 18 to start university. Regardless of the course. I guess thats all part of my imagination. I think dentistry you do have to start at 18 though...

I dont think so because people who decide to do BTec in ICT/Computing in my school, they do it in one year and go to uni a year early. It aslo says on the Cambridge Prospectus that there are no age requirements for their courses as long as you meet the entry requirements and maturity to cope with university level study.

well you should phone the univerisites you intend to apply to and ask them if you need to apply for a deferred entry. Then you will have a gap year on your hands, where you can travel, get a job, do charity work, do nothing...

I'll probably be phoning when we get our exam results (5th aug - can't wait :rolleyes: ) I'd much rather just jump straight into uni and be a dentist by 21
