Youíve established that dentistry is your career goal. Thatís the easy part. The hard part is getting accepted into dental school so that you can start making that dream a reality.
Due to the high number of applicants, dental schools are selective about who they admit to their dentistry programmes. You need to prepare and submit a personal statement, pass the UKCAT (UK Clinical Aptitude Test), and impress a panel of reviewers during a dental admissions interview.
This is where Pass Dental can get you closer to your goal. We offer courses, materials, and dental interview tips that prepare you for these application-related challenges and give you the tools you need to succeed.
Dentistry UCAS Personal Statement
The Personal Statement is a key component of applying for a dentistry programme. Universities use this document -along with a reference from your current school- to determine whether or not you will be selected for an admissions interview. You need to make yours stand out among the hundreds (if not thousands!) submitted for consideration.
At PassDental we help you fine-tune your Dentistry UCAS Personal Statement so that it meets the criteria needed to get you short-listed for an interview. Our online Personal Statement Portal allows you to email your document to us for review by experts such as dental students, practising dentists, and former admissions panelists. Their feedback will be provided to you so your statement can be polished to perfection.
UKCAT Dentistry Test Preparation
The UKCAT was originally conceived to help dental and medical schools select students based on criteria and characteristics that are relevant to their chosen profession. There is no curriculum content for this multiple-choice test, as candidates are assessed on innate skills like the following:
Verbal reasoning: the ability to critically evaluate information presented in written form
Quantitative reasoning: the ability to critically evaluate information presented in numerical form.
Abstract reasoning: the ability to use both convergent and divergent reasoning to detect relationships
Decision analysis: the ability to use complicated information as the basis for sound judgements and decisions
Situational judgement test: the ability to identify important factors in real world situations and deal with them appropriately.
PassDental is affiliated with KAPLAN, one of the UKís foremost UKCAT dentistry coaching schools. This connection enables us to offer an intensive preparation course that gives you the vital skills needed to succeed at your UKCAT test.
Dental Admissions Interview
Dental school applicants who are being seriously considered for admission are invited in for an interview. These interviews enable the admissions committee to evaluate your communication and interpersonal skills, allowing them to see how you would work with patients.
PassDentalís detailed admissions interview courses prepare you for the big event by providing dental interview tips and reviewing topics that need to be understood in order to succeed.
