Dear Poole, Katie,

I hope you are well.

I would like to know the predicted or achieved grades that were used to apply for dentistry in 2017/18, 2018/19, and 2019/20 (e.g.: A-Levels, A*A*A; Access Course, 45 x Distinctions; Degree, subject & classification, etc). This is in addition to UKCAT/UCAT score and GCSE grades achieved (e.g. 6 x A*, 5 x A, 4 x B) where applicable. There isn't a specific list of qualifications; just the qualifications used by candidates to apply to dentistry for the stated years.

From this data, I would like to know which candidates were offered an interview and then if they were offered a place. Finally, I would like to know what the actual grades achieved were (where applicable) and whether candidates were able to fulfill the requirements of their offer or if they turned it down.

Thank you for taking the time to complete my request. Please let me know if you require any further information.

Yours sincerely,

R Khan

Poole, Katie, King's College London
