    Haha, no offence meant to Scotland in any way! I've just never been and didn't know whether Lloyds was only found in England or in all of UK.. (In my feeble defence, I'm not British). I probably should have known, and for that I apologise
    Hey im also going to start pharmacy on the 15th im really excited about the course itself, i was wondering roughly what percentage of students get a first?
    Also what would you do differently if you were a first year?
    Any tips for lectures and working outside of them

    im reall sorry for all the questions any info would be really appreciated
    many thanks

    its a hard degree no doubt about that however its worth it! I learned so many things, however there are subjects which you wish you never did pharmacy such as FMT formulation, manufacture.....dreadful.


    I actually found it really helpful as I am going to apply to medicine now, if i didnt do pharmacy i dont know if i would still have the desire and insight to do medicine

    How are you financing your medicine course now? And do you get any funding at all towards the course from elsewhere (e.g government, employer...?)

    Sorry, thought I'd ask a few cheeky questions!

    No abs fine with me.

    I am at the applying stage now, thus I havent started med yet. I am funding it myself from my pre-reg money, which wasnt bad at all! Plus I have plenty of family support, which is an advantage many would dream to have. I consider myself luck in that aspect, becuase even if I couldnt afford it, my family would fund it no probs. I am prepared to pay whatever it takes to get into med because thats what always wanted in the first place. Studying pharmacy has actually encouraged me to apply to medicine. I am still going to work from now until my entry date.

    Are you a student or pharmacist, may I ask?

    Third year pharmacy

    Thanks for the advice, you're making the right choice.
    Unfortunately, I wouldn't have the funding from my family I was weighing up the option of saving up some funds from pre-registration plus working as a pharmacist at weekends but it doesn't sound much fun and it's wishful thinking anyway to afford the £9000 a year purely off that (not forgetting living costs!). Just not an option - shame really. Hopefully there will be a funded/shorter conversion course in the future :rolleyes:.

    You could always do the scottish 5 year course which cost around £1820 a year, not bad really. I wish they had 4 year courses of med in scotland, would be so convenient for me!

    Good luck for third year
