Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear University of Dundee,

May I ask you:

1. how do you rank the students if they do not have any of the gcses/highers/ib qualifications? (they may have provided equivalent qualifications in their country on ucas)

2. How many graduate applicants applied to the BDS A200 dentistry course in the recent 3 years, and of them, how many are international students? And if you can, please include the nationalities of the international applicants.
Among all the graduate applicants, how many were invited for an interview and how many got an offer? Please provide an excel sheet including their fee status and ucat scores too.

3. your website states that graduate applicants should have a life science related degree, I wonder if a degree in chemistry is eligible for applying

Yours faithfully,

Dear Eliza
Thank you for your email. Please see the table below in answer to
your questions. We have omitted some of the numbers and have expressed
numbers under 5 as <5 as is our policy to avoid the identification of
personal information about individuals. 
We check the Overseas qualifications against Ecctis looking for
equivalences with Highers/A-levels.  A degree in Chemistry is acceptable.
I hope that this helps and please let me know if you have any other
questions. 
Kind regards
