Dental schools are responsible for setting their own entry criteria. Generally, the minimum entry requirements to a standard dentistry degree are three As at A level or equivalent qualifications, with one in Chemistry and often one in Biology. Grades at GCSE or equivalent are also considered as part of the application. Graduate programmes often require applicants to have achieved a minimum of 2.1 in a health science degree. Exact entry requirements can be found on individual dental school websites.
