Well I am studying MPharm pharmacy already at Bradford school of pharmacy, okay fair enough if no one replies here and no it ain't misleading. Why am I not morally allowed to make a thread regarding some other course than pharmacy all the time.

I already have a thread on Pharmay at BSP which picked up a fairly high number of posts.

Are you going to be studying Optometry or are you already are ?

Your welcome.

Do you live near Bradford ?

Honestly speaking I don't know much as to whether Optometry students tend to do like that or not, well yes from my experience I can say in Pharmacy people dont help each other they tend to hide stuff from each other.

Don't worry keep faith in your own self yeah work hard and ALLAH will always help you out.

I live in manchester atm near the city center, a very asian place indeed so i guess there wont be much of an enviromental change when i move out.
In my sixth form everyone used to help each other out, if i didnt understand something i would ask my friend and vice versa. I guess i will have to change how i study then

Oh cool then.

Yes actually studies in a university is a bit different it was the same in my sixth form as well everyone used to help each other out, but in uni my friends did help me out but mostly people used to kind of be cunning and stuff. Don't worry if you are clever enough you'll be okay . Don't worry too much. I also faced a similar situation to yours when I was new in university but with time you will adapt to all the changes. If too worried okay ask me for help then lol.

Timetable was a bit hectic due to lab classes the earliest possible lecture used to be from like 9am and it could end till 5pm. With lab classes it would be even hectic just go till 4 or 5 pm to be honest, we do have a lot of lab classes I am sure you should be having lab classes as well. Yeah sometimes we had days off if we had lesser lectures etc. When you'll go for induction you'll know of all that when is your induction week btw ?

Will you be going gym in the university like seriously ?

Okay but again I donot know as to whether you people will have lab classes or not. :rofl: I liked Biology experiments but kind of hated the Chemistry ones.

I have seen it, it is big enough so would be good then but I've never been inside just seen it from outside, there is a nice swimming pool as well.

I donot know about the football one not sure though.

But I think for AS one needs something like BBB-ABB inorder to apply.
