Regarding the GCSE requirements for direct entry into year 2, I just wanted to ask whether graduates still need to have the B grade in English language?

Essentially if one starts the UCLAN course, we will be entering second year hence why it’s a 4year programme. It’s aimed at graduates, understandbly. To ensure applicants have a sound scientific knowledge background, UCLAN do an entrance exam. Soo…. The verification of prior learning is basically like a summary of required topics for this exam. It kinda provides the dental school with some assurance that the applicant has covered these certain topics, during their previous studies.

Normally the form is filled out when the UCAS application is sent. Please visit UCLAN’s entrance requirements, there should be a link to the form… under the ‘application and interview process”.

Good luck!♥️

Hi, I just wanted to let you know that I also panicked when I realised I hadn't submitted the VPL form online as previously they wanted applicants to email it to them. Just wanted to let you know that I emailed them to ask if submitting it later than the 15th of Oct will affect my application and they said it won't so don't worry !!:smile:
