Hi guys,

I’m applying for dentistry this year as a grad, and I wonder if I can add my IELTS reference number on UCAS which was take in 2017. I’m aware that IELTS score is only valid for 2 years and mine has expired, but I wonder if I can still submit it on UCAS for university to see it? (If they see it and want me to retake the IELTS then I would be happy to do it too)

Personally I want to submit my expired score bc it has met the English requirements of most dental schools. I took the test in 2017 and have been studying in the uk since 2016, so I think there’s no reason my English would get worse now

It looks like it can be submitted anyway as UCAS doesn’t automatically check the validity of IELTS references. Anyone can give some advice? Thanks xx

If IELTS is specifically mentioned as a condition of meeting the English language requirements, then submitting an expired IELTS to me doesn't make sense because they will definitely not accept it.

It usually needs to taken in the same year you apply - check with each Uni directly.
However, you can apply with the 2017 scores and if the Uni will not accept it they will add an further English Language condition to your offer - giving you time to retake it.

It almost certainly won’t be accepted, but there is no harm in adding it.
