    Hi guys!
    I'm in my first year of Pharmacy and I just feel so bored when doing the law side, dispensing or anything to do with Community, hospital or Industrial pharmacy! I do enjoy the Biology and chemistry Modules though!

    I am doing really well at the moment ( barring laws and ethics in pharmacy module – im on 59% so far) and I’m not finding it stressful like most students are!

    For example during my dispensing class’s I was feeling like ‘I couldn’t be bothered’. If I don’t like it or feel this way now then as a future pharmacist I could be the same way and make mistakes and therefore could kill a patient. During the laws and ethics in pharmacy module I keep going to sleep and I don’t feel like revising it because it is so boring! Also during practical’s ( when you have to make up products and labels for it) I just don’t feel like doing it and so I quickly write up my method ect and just finish of the product as quickly as possible….

    I got AAB during my A-levels and I didn’t get into Med.. but now I wish that I took a gap year and re-applied to med!.. I just don’t know whats going on! I wanted to be a person who solved the problem not giving out medication and refering patients half the time!

    This is why people shouldn't put a completely different course as their 5th choice for Medicine!

    Are you sure med would be right for you? If you hate the legal parts and practical side, these are also similar to medicine.

    Biochemistry?

    Do you see yourself being a Pharmacist? Do you think you would enjoy the career?

    I couldnt find anything you said you actually liked, and am unfamiliar with the course layout but it does seem you dislike a good majority of it.

    Most people do not like soemthing about their jobs or degree, I for one hatr the accounting part of my degree but pretty much like every other module.
