I have applied for Pharmacy and received the following offers:
Sunderland : B in chem, B in Bio
Kingston: 300 points from 3 a levels (i.e ABC)
My current grades: B business, B chem, C bio
I am resitting some chem and bio modules, however I will probably struggle more to get a B in bio than an A in chem.
I need advice on which one to choose as firm and which one as insurance. Looking at league tables Sunderland seems to be considerably higher than Kingston both for Pharmacy and overall, it also seems to have higher employability prospects.
However, will the ranking of the university really affect employment prospects
for a pharmacy job, is Kingston really that bad a uni and is Sunderland really much better?
The only other factor is leniency, I was thinking that Kingston may be more lenient if I missed the points slightly if I had them as firm rather than insurance.
What does everyone think?
Is this right?
