I got a d on my mock for chemistry and most likely predicted c so I got aac predicted, I looked at the eligibility for access and I am able to get it. So will I get offers for unis and does anyone know which uni for dentistry will most likely accept me for access? Also will I be disadvantaged such as if a uni wants to give me and someone an offer,but I got lower grades even if I got access will they choose the other person? I just won’t meet the entry requirements due to my chem grade to put on my ucas application and my teacher was suing to choose a backup bu to want to do dentistry! And I don’t know how to get access

A contextual offer is what you mean. Each University uses different criteria - but there is still no guarantee of an offer, especially for something as competitive as Dentistry.

So does that mean I need to get AAA for a better guaranteed offer? As I’m aware of course it depends on ucat and interview as well

A minimum of AAA is what you’ll need for most dental schools (some are A*AA), so if you can’t get this predicted, you’ll need to take a gap year and apply with achieved grades.

If you are eligible for contextual offers, take a look at this link which highlights which schools take “gateway” or contextual offer applicants. https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/uni...dental-courses
Note: foundation courses are for people with correct grades but wrong subjects, they are for students with lower grades.

Hi yes I’m eligible for contextual offers, so would I be able to pass the entry requirements for a lower grade. Also do they only accept entry requirements of some ppl with contextual offers even if it applied to me for most of the reasons for getting access? I’m abit confused how it works as i know no one is guaranteed an offer even if they got the entry requirements as it’s also based of personal statements,

Im not really sure what you’re asking here. If you have the minimum entry requirements they require, you are invited to an interview. It’s then down to your interview performance whether you receive an offer or not. No person who applies to dentistry is guaranteed a spot.
