    I was just wondering why Reading has lowered it's grades for Pharmacy from ABB to BBB whereas Portsmouth has increased their grades vice versa. Would the quality of the teaching for Pharmacy be the issue? Only curious.

    I'm pretty sure that Reading recently raised their grades for Pharmacy from 360 points or something to BBB, and I think many universities for pharmacy have increased requirements just because of the number of applicants increased (that's what they said on an open day anyway..)

    360 UCAS points is AAA...

    Last year, it was 320 points.
