    I'm in year 12 currently studying maths, chemistry and biology. I would really like to study pharmacy at university but I feel like my GCSE grades will not allow me.
    I acheived the following:
    Maths - A
    Additonal science - A
    English literature - A
    Computing - A
    Core science - B
    Religious studies - B
    French - B
    Geography - C
    Textiles - C
    English Language - C

    Most universities require a B in English language GCSE. Would there be any chance of me being able to study Pharmacy at university if I managed to achieve outstanding results at A-Level despite having a C in english language GCSE? Thank you in advance!

    I'm currently in the same boat, however in doing research many good uni's such as Aston allow a c in English Lang. Aslong as you get the a level requirements you should be fine.
