Dear University of Sheffield,

I would like to request for information regarding the GRADUATE BDS Dentistry admissions.

1) Please could you provide me an excel sheet containing all of the following information for the past 2 DBS Dentistry admission cycles: 2016/2017 and 2017/2018. If you do not have information for the years requested, I kindly ask for you to provide the statistics for the next most recent 2 years of admissions.

* UKCAT score
* A-level predicted grades
* Graduate/Non-Graduate
* Interviewed / Not interviewed
* Made an offer / Not made an offer

2) Are graduates applying for the program given equal consideration to those applying without any higher education of such?

3) To what extent will the A-Level grades of graduates applying be considered?

Yours Faithfully,
