I have just applied for graduate entry for Dentistry, following redundancy, this being something I have always wanted to do. I am a solicitor and so already have a good law degree. But I will be asked for passes at B in Chemistry and Human Biology at higher, and to be honest, I need to spend some time learning these subjects to prepare me for dental school (if I get in...). I cannot believe that I am hitting a brick wall in simply trying to arrange to sit these exams. I have contacted Stevenson, Telford, Aberdeen College and Carnegie College, and they have all told me I "will have to wait til next year" because they are either full, not running or I have missed the start date. Fine, I thought, I will simply do them independently and study for them on my own (I've just 6500 for the UKCat after 2 days preperation and no science since school). This is what I got back from the automaton at the SQA: "Thank you for your email. Please note in order to be presented for the qualifications below, youwould need to be registered with an SQA approved school or college. As it is entirely at their discretion with regards to presentingcandidates, please contact a local school or college if you wish to enquirefurther." Does anyone have any ideas what the hell I do now? I am just hitting a brick wall. I simply want the right to pay for and sit the exams! I had no idea that accessing education in Scotland was so difficult, and am really shocked.
