    I'm not sure what to do , does anyone know any other unis that dont require A's in bio and chem at A-level except Kings and Queens? Im awaiting results and i think i may have got AAB but not an A in biology - thus restricting my choices to 2 when i reapply next year. Do you know of any other uni's that dont specify or what i can do?

    Stay with it - as already been said - wait until results day. You never know.

    Good Luck - thinking of you

    Even for a uni that doesn't ask for an A in bio and chem will prefer that you have it, increasing chance of interview and placement

    Is that not really obvious?

    Belfast: AAAa (AA in chemistry and one from biology, physics or maths)
    Birmingham:AABb/a (AA in chemistry and biology)
    Bristol: AAB (AA in chemistry and one other lab-based science, preferably biology. AS Biology at grade A if not taken to A-level)
    Cardiff: AAB (AA in 2 sciences, normally chemistry and biology)
    Dundee: AAA (including biology and normally from chemistry, physics or mathematics)
    Glasgow: AAB with at least BBB at first sitting (AA in chemistry and biology)
    King's College London: AABb (chemistry and biology, at least 1 at A-level)
    Leeds: AAB (AA in chemistry and biology)
    Liverpool: AAB (chemistry and biology, at least 1 at A-level. If not offered at A-level, AS chemistry or biology at grade A)
    Manchester:AABb
    Newcastle: AAB (chemistry and biology at grade A)
    Queen Mary (Barts and the London): AABb (chemistry and biology compulsory at AS, chemistry and/or biology at A-level)
    Sheffield: AAB (including chemistry and one other science)


    OP, if you get AAB with the B in biology on results day you could apply to KCL, Queen Mary and maybe even Sheffield as they don't specify biology as one of the compulsory subjects required. Also, give Liverpool a ring and ask them if they want AA in the 2 sciences. I'm pretty sure Manchester want AA in chemistry and biology but I didn't see it anywhere on their website.

    In brief, that's King's, Queen Mary, Sheffield and Liverpool. 4 good unversities you could possibly reapply to.

    Edit: if you can't find the information on their website, you could always check the UCAS website for specific subjects and grades required (if any) for each dental school.
    very impressive

    Chemistry is for some reason more important than biology, as long as you are predicted A in chemistry and you pull it up next year you have a chance of getting in

    I was under the impression that with the exception of graduate entry you had to get an A in Chemistry for all dentistry degrees in England anyway.
