I need some help with applying to Dentistry in the UK

I'm interested in pursuing dentistry and am taking the IB, but I've struggled with chemistry despite my best efforts. My current grade is a 5, which is below the typical requirement of 6 for most dental schools. However, my biology and psychology grades are solid at 7,6 at HL, and my UCAT score is in the top 5%. With my chemistry exam in five days, improving to a 6 seems daunting. i have also done weeks worth of dental work experience at a clinic would that help my case

Do you think dental schools might consider my application given my strengths in other areas and high UCAT score, despite my lower chemistry grade?

Thanks for all the help
