What are my chances of admission into NUS Dentistry without straight As?

Hello, I'm in the midst of applying for universities. I'm particularly interested in dentistry and I've been interning at a dental clinic since January 2018. However, I received my A Level results today and they were not up to expectations. I got a B for H2 Physics, C for H2 Chemistry, and As for H2 Chem, H1 Econs, GP and PW as well as H1 MT. That boils down to 82.5 RP and 83.25 with H1 MT. How likely am I able to get shortlisted for the interview? Thank you!

Hi Ronnie, the NUS site says that you need a Good H2 pass in Chemistry, Biology or Physics, and in GP plus a third subject. Your grades probably put you at a disadvantage compared to most other applicants for being shortlisted for an interview.

hey guys, idk if this is the right place to post but could somebody help me with my question. I recently got rejected by nus medicine and dentistry and got offered my 3rd choice. I was hoping appeal into medicine (although I know its damn tough) and was wondering if I should include: 1) reiterate my achievements and relate it to my passion/how it'll do me good in medical school (altho it has already been highlighted in my portfolio la) OR 2) bring in something new and relate it to my interest in med (tbh I didn't do anything special during my time after the interviews and now).

The portfolio I submitted had:

UAS: 90

Competitions: 1) group Performing arts cca in jc (1st in international competition)

2) Overseas leadership trip in europe for performing arts in sec sch

Leadership: 1)Small sporadic ones like, orientation group leader in jc, committee member in class CIP for a year, Leadership position in Life sciences club in sec sch, facilitator in external camp involving children and science

Community/Work: 1) worked with organisation dealing w intellectually disabled for extended period

2) one week attachment at local hospital

3) was a combat medic in the army

tbh i thought my portfolio was slightly above average and didn't really know where in the interviews did I make a fatal mistake to deny me entry into med school :-( help someone?

I have friends studying at NUS Medical and Dental. From their feedback, I share:

Both fields attract top JC/Poly grads.

Your CCA/Achievements portfolios are what most potential candidates had too.

For Medicine: The interviews decide one fate cos almost everyone is RP 90 points.

For Dentistry: One's dexterity is tested during the interviews. The mouth is a relatively small space for a dentist to work.

Do not lost heart, you can always apply to Duke NUS Medical School after obtaining your Bachelor Degree if you are still keen to study medicine.
