I was wondering if it’s possible to transfer from a biomedical sciences degree (while you’re still studying it) to dentistry. I’ve heard some unis allow u to transfer mid-degree and I wondered if this was true

Yes but if your heart is set on dentistry before you have started the biomedical science course I would say it's better to just apply to do dentistry undergraduate as it's so competitive to get on while you're on the degree and only a small number of people get interviewed. It's so much better to study a degree like medicine or dentistry at undergraduate because transferring and graduate entry is even more competitive than UG

Is applying as a graduate to undergrad dentistry more competitive than graduate entry programmes?

I would say that applying at UG is less competitive than graduate entry. GEM is already something that is competitive just like GED but the difference is that there are way less dental schools compared to medical schools. Many graduate entry dentistry people just apply for five year courses with UGs as well as the 4 year graduate entry as it's that competitive

Trueee exactly, especially if you have the funds (no flex) but since it should be less competitive than GEM, I'm considering applying to pure 5 year programmes as a graduate.

Do you know the UCAT scores needed usually for KCL, Dundee, Newcastle, QMUL & Cardiff?

I read somewhere that dundee accepted people with scores of 590 average whilst KCL and QMUL interview half of applications with 50-60% success rate from interview.

You think that's accurate?
