    I'll have just graduated a few months before my 25th (4 years from now) so it depends what my starting wage will be at the time in whatever field/company I work at. Doing a masters integrated computer science course so ideally a job in that area.

    Around 30k if I get onto my planned graduate career path. My degree ends when I'm 22, so around 3 years of work hopefully. If I can get into university in the first place.

    The dream is to study medicine so I'd be in FY1 training. Should be around £27k but who knows what's going to happen...? ()

    I plan to study International Relations at Uni then look into my options. I'd love to be a journalist or work for the civil service, although I could study economics and pursue a risky passion for trading currencies in London (should the opportunity arise)

    If all goes to plan, I'll be a band 6 hospital pharmacist in the 2nd year of my diploma in Inner London, so I would be on approximately £31500, give or take.
    Advice please about pharmacy. How hard is it to become a 'hospital' pharmacist?
    What kind of AS and A Level grades do you need?

    Not as difficult as you might think. If you get anything along the lines of AAB or above (including Biology and Chemistry), you should be okay.

    The key thing to getting in to hospital pharmacy is work experience, in my opinion; you need to have something so that you stand out from the crowd who also want to be hospital pharmacists.

    That means:
    - having plenty of work experience (I worked as a counter assistant / dispenser in an independent community pharmacy full time during the summers of 1st and 2nd year of MPharm, and I've now got a 4 week hospital pharmacy summer placement at one of the largest NHS Trusts in the UK this summer)
    - having good clinical knowledge of medicines (which I developed in part by becoming familiar with them whilst working as a dispenser)
    - knowing a bit about the profession and recent relevant issues (e.g. doing some wider reading including reading articles in the Pharmaceutical Journal, to which you get free access as a student member of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society)
    - among other things, e.g. getting involved in research in an area you're interested in, writing for your pharmacy school newspaper etc.

    Hope this helps!
