    QUB's pharmacy school is pretty decent. It's AAB I believe but you should get in with ABB. 3 of my friends are second year pharmacists at Queen's and they like it, but it's pretty challenging!

    PM if you want to know anything about Queen's

    Good, you should never rush into something, especially picking your uni choices!

    When are you gonna send off your UCAS?
    Btw did Bath and Uni's like that say that they were going to give you an offer of AAA if they wanted you?

    Ahh fair enough, the only thing which makes reading better than Durham is the social life.

    Like for example you have had Example and Calvin Harris perform in the Student Union night club thing.

    Yeah, we have loads of big acts come down.

    Uni isn't just about the degree, it's about having a good social life once you've done your work/assignments for the day

    DO you think I should take a risk and swap De Montfort University for Reading and treat it like an ABB uni???
    Because if they let students in with BBB surely ABB would be alright especially if the A is in Chem?

    Yeah you can do that, I think that's probably the better thing to do.

    Then once you visit Durham/Reading for your interviews, you can judge the uni's there yourself!

    You must get the 'please rate some other members' message when trying to rep me :hmmm: . Apparently you gotta wait until you rep 20 other members before you can rep me again. Well that's as far as I read into the FAQ's haha.

    I gave you rep, you should have received it!

    Yeah it's been really good so far. I've met loads of nice people on the course, everyone is friendly to talk to and just uni life in general is fun.

    The course is hard, I'm not gonna even lie. It's the sheer volume of work we have to get through that is what is making things hard, the content from all modules is understandable as we're just branching off from A-level material.

    The chemistry lab practicals are interesting, but we've only had three so far and one human physiology practical.

    Ahh cool sounds like it's going well!

    Well It is Pharmacy after all haha, it's expected that the work load will be quite high as opposed to other courses. But as long as you keep on top of it, you have plenty of time I am sure to party haha .

    Btw I couldn't get you to quickly check something for me in private chat,

    cheers
