Some dental schools don’t accept resit applicants/ applicants who take more than 2 years to complete their A Levels.

See this link for a list of which universities accept/don’t accept resits: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/uni...y-requirements

Not necessarily all.

Some dental schools may be take A-Level resit students without exceptional circumstances... and if you have taken more than 2 years to complete your A-Levels - you may be treated as an A-Level resit student.

and also on Plymouth it said one resit attempt allowed so does that mean only one subject resit or one all 3 subject resit?

I think UCAS applications ask for details like this, so they will know. ecolier do you know? I’m only sure about this when it comes to official AS exam qualifications.

Resits = number of times you’ve attempted any one exam. If you’ve only done a biology resit, it’s considered a resit in the same way as doing a resit in all 3 subjects because you’ve still taken more than 2 years to complete your A Levels.

Of course they will... if you completed your GCSEs in 2020, but your A-Levels were achieved in 2023 that's going to raise questions.

I mean there's a list for "which med school accept resits" https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=6649138 so it must be possible to find out one way or another for dental schools too.

How long have you waited for a response? Note that it's still peak season and admissions may be busy - the best resource is straight from the university itself.
