You can't do the pre-dental course if you have more than 1 science. If you want to do the pre-dental course, stick with biology and don't bother doing Chemistry AS

Hey i got onto the Pre dental course this year.

I did Biol, Maths and Music alevels and got onto the course fine. So id stick to what you're doing, specially if you can get the required grades, no point straining to get the chem too.

Hope that helps

Sorry just realised you meant the 6 year one...I wouldn't take chemistry as you might be putting yourself at risk at not being accepted...biology is the max science you must have I think...so do yourself a favour and don't do it:p:

Hey im doing Bio, maths and art at a-level and chem at as-Level. I called manchester and cardiff and they said im eligible for the course as long as i didnt do chemistry to full a2. but you can have chem, bio and maths at as-level but you are only allowed to keep two from the 3 for a-level.

hope that helps

I will be next year. Manchester requires ABB, but what do Bristol, Cardiff, Dundee etc require?

Geography: B
History: A
Economics: B possibly A.

I will have had about 6 weeks work with a dentist and plenty of voluntary work with a great reference.

As you didn't get A's for your A-Levels, I doubt you can apply for undergraduate dentistry. Your best bet would be to complete your degree and apply for postgraduate dentistry. You could ask your university if you could switch to another course if you hate your current one so much.

thank you for your advice.
what entry requirments are their for postgraduate dentistry? dont you need a degree in a science subject?
if not are the uni's which you can study dentistry at a postgraduate level, restricted?
also, do you have to finance your tutuion fees etc by your self to study a postgraduate degree?

TSR's page for Graduate Entry Dentistry

Except for Peninsula, you do need a biomedically related degree (at 2:1 at least) to apply. Which degree are you doing now?

As of 2012, you'll have to finance yourself for any degree beyond your initial one, so if you're serious about dentistry you're gonna have to start saving up! Sucks right?

Dental schools don't like it when more than two years are taken for A-Levels, and they certainly don't like it when people drop out of Uni. Dropping out would probably be equivalent to shooting yourself in the mouth foot as it'll seem like you're not a committed individual. Best thing to do would be to get a 1st and either apply to Peninsula or do a science degree, then apply to Dental schools (which isn't really a feasible option unless you're rich).
