    after snooping around, I saw that kings has 13:1 and manchester has 110 places with 2000 apps.

    and what about cardiff and nottingham?

    and if anyone else applying/ studying pharmacy, can you post your academic info below:

    it's not as comeptitive as med or dentistry but you still need to have the academic ability because it's a heavy course. My sister had qualifications from abroad (not IB or A-levels) and she got an offer from Kingston, Hertfordshire and Birminham and rejected from Reading and Bradford.

    Yes i know, theres also a difference between knowing facts and being able to read things on forums and being an arrogant person thinks they know everything and is cocky yet probably has an iq slight above that of an illiterate primary school child.

    I don't understand, if you knew before hand why would you say it can be misleading

    and I am sorry if I sound arrogant, I'm just frustrated that I can't find much on pharmacy over the internet. It seems like a really interesting branch of medicine but one rarely looked into

    Biology (Predicted an A) getting a B realistically
    Chemistry (Predicted a B)
    Maths (Predicted a B)
    Psychology (AS level - c)

    work experience before applying: 4 weeks in community

    Even then, I doubt I'll get in.

    I'm sure you'll get a place with work experience like that

    if I was predicted:
    A*A*Ac in Maths + further maths, Chemistry and AS physics respectively, do you think I stand a healthy chance?

    Obviously you would stand a chance with those grades.....have you not considered a Maths degree though cos getting predicted an A* in A2 FM is quite a mean feat.

    A* prediction in further maths is ok provided you choose the right modules, and no maths degree is way way too difficult

    I think that is the case with everyone- at my school, those doing A2 Physics/looking to study Engineering are taking FM Mechanics modules whilst others are doing Stats. If you can get A*s you would still be in the best position possible for a Maths degree- from my understanding though, there are tonnes of proofs at degree level to get your head around...
