Application help 2024

Hi guys!

I've always wanted to do dentistry, unfortunately when į applied in yr 13 (2023 entry) I didn't get in so I am now a gap year student! - I applied to Leeds, Manchester Liverpool and Sheffield. I got an interview from Leeds.

I've retaken my UKAT (2400 sit3) - I know its bad i have no clue where my head was during this, and A levels I got AAA (bio,chem,psychology) and GCSE's got 999999888765

I'm applying again 2024 as I am just working through my gap year/doing all the work experience possible. Leeds, Dundee (but still debating Glasgow), Cardiff and liverpool, UCLAN bio med science is my backup.

Are these good/reasonable choices? I would really like to do dentistry but I'm afraid I am going to get rejected again as of my UKAT score.

Hi there. Unfortunately you UCAT score may inhibit you from applying since UCAT scores/cut offs are increases each year. Are you contextual by any chance ?

Hi there,

I'm sorry I don't have access to the data regarding the UCAT Cut Offs, I only have access to any public available material and I couldn't find this data either.

Best of luck in your studies :smile:
