Hi, kamsha what are your academics and UKCAT like? I'm going to be applying to dentistry in 2010, preferably to queen mary's and you got in, so it would be of great help. Thank you.

I've been rejected from Birmingham, Dundee, and now just today Glasgow has rejected me via UCAS. I only had one interview which was in Glasgow.
Glasgow was my first choice and they just tortured me with all this waiting and now they tell me I FAIL
I have to settle for my 2 backups now, of which both are conditionals. I'm not going to take a gap year and reapply because I will probably fail again.

I see a lot of rejection from Cardiff, I'd guess similar to my Aberdeen rejection I bet they want a high percentage of graduates to remain within the country or area. Lets face it the DoH funds the courses and there will be regianal demand to see patients or improve regional service access; if you were running the course you might want to service the local strategic health authorities needs.
Got reject from Birmingham, to be expected I got my Glasgow offer 4 days before thus didn't really take it seriously at the Bham interview. Glasgow was my first choice. I pulled my Kings application to make a firm reply to Glasgow.
Now for those who are facing potential full rejection, don't for god sake slack on your a-levels, you still have clearing and the ability to re-apply in a year. But if your A levels are poor and you have to re-sit you are in a different boat, and potentially worse situation then having no offers but good A levels. If you screw it up now it will haunt you for many many years, so guys get you head down, cover all the bases, don't ignore areas you don't know and get those grades. Its been difficult for me getting in I had poor A levels, that still didn't go unoticed behind my Ist Class BSc Hons and MSc with distinction. A levels and highers are real important for this kind of subject.

Just wondering has anyone who got rejected after interview from queen mary (barts and the london) for dentistry (a200) got a phone call today regarding an offer, because they were borderline and some places have opened up.
I was told that an offer would be made within a couple days.
