Passdental Interview Course Day

UKCAT Dentistry

Imagine yourself in a position with impeccable grades, an incredible personal statement but no offer, why? Because you have a poor UKCAT score. To have an overall successful application, you need to achieve the best in every aspect of the process. Nine of the dental schools take the UKCAT into consideration, some before deciding whether to give you an interview or not. As you will be aware, dentistry is a very competitive course so getting a good score is crucial otherwise the chances of being invited for an interview are reduced.

UK Clinical Aptitude Test Dentistry

Universities use the UKCAT score as part of your application in various ways with some emphasising it more than others. However do not allow this to limit your application choices and remember that there are only thirteen dental schools in the country, so a high UKCAT score means a higher chance of being a successful candidate.

PassDental Tip!

Make sure when visiting the open days, you check with the university how they consider the UKCAT, then make an action plan before you sit the UKCAT exam on a list of universities you will apply to with a high score and vice versa.
