Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

The request was successful.

Dear University of Dundee,
I would be grateful to you if you could provide information for the number of graduate applicants to the Dentistry A200 course with a UCAT score of <2400 for the entries 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021.
Also, do you look at the SJT score when deciding who to invite for interview?

Yours faithfully,

Sarlize Cha.

Dear Sarlize Cha
Many thanks for your email. Please see the information below. We have
included the total number of applicants to give you some context.

Graduate applications
to BDS Dentistry (A200)
Entry year Total applications Applications with a UCAT
Total Score of <2400
2018/9 53 20
2019/0 65 24
2020/1 79 39
2021/2 93 44

Please note that not all applicants submit a UCAT test result and UCAT
data represents UCAT tests undertaken in the academic year immediately
preceding the year of entry only. Due to the pandemic there was no
entrance to the course in 2021/2 but we still received applications so
have included these numbers. We do not consider SJT in our assessment of
applications at any stage. 
I hope that this is helpful and please let me know if you have any
questions. 
Kind regards
Caroline Brown
