Best wishes to the reapplicants.

Remember that having a productive gap year can really help to improve your application for next year!

Good luck

In my interview they didn't even ask me about my work experience (I had one week NHS clinic), so I'm wondering in what ways a gap year will help? I've come to the conclusion that they must be looking for something quite specific in the interview, and until I know what that is I'm not really hopeful 😢

I think most dental schools accept reapplications. QUB doesn't accept reapplications if you didn't apply there in the first cycle.

What does 'first' cycle mean? The previous one?
On Liverpool's website they've said they allowed reapplications for those first applying in 2021, but nothing about this year. I couldn't find anything on the QMUL website. It's really important to know these things, obviously you don't want to waste a choice on one that won't even consider you. I suppose I should email all of my new choices just to be sure.

So you can only reapply to QUB for 2023 entry if you applied there for 2022 entry and 2022 entry was your first application.

I emailed Liverpool and they said they aren’t allowing us to reapply if rejected post-interview

Fr?? That's a bummer i really wanted to change one of my choices strategically to QUB since my strongest aspect is my academic profile I.e. my GCSEs and A level obtained grades and since they work based of a point grading system it'd be ideal for me since I'm not really a strong UCAT person. I'm currently wait - listed for my last dentistry option for 2022 but ofc I may have to re-apply for the 2023 entry so finding this out now is a bit saddening.

Yes but not all unis you’ll have to research which ones allow resits and which ones do not so far I know Leeds do!

I would suggest you have a look at medic mind website. There is a comparison tool there where you can compare different dental schools you are considering applying for, although lots of information is based on pre Covid data.
