    i go to sunderland to do pharmacy
    i got a scholarship to do pharmacy there and its great but really hard.
    Most people i know got ABB
    there are a lot of malaysian and canadian students (about 50%) like most pharmacy schools.
    we have 5 placements in our first year - 3 community and 2 hospital
    There is a lot of work to do, its hard to have a night off.

    We have one exam at the end of each term, we have one written exam thats about 4/5 hours at the end of the year and coursework

    Sunderland accommodation (Especially The Forge is the best ive seen and only 84 a week!!)

    i am also the British Pharmaceutical Student Association rep for sunderland first years so i can tell you a lot more if you or anyone else would like to know!!

    Yes i am really looking for a career in pharmacy. I didnt get the best GcsE results ( 2B,5C and a D) but i am really commited to my a levels and am hoping to do well. Im studying chemistry,biology, psychology and law. For pharmacy do you think i should be taking Psychology onto A2 with chem an bio or should i take Law? Or wouldnt it make a difference? Thanks ;-)

    Well done!!! Psychology is a great subject but some of the case studies are really hard to remember :-0. How much harder is chemistry in pharmacy school than in a level. Im finding unit 1 quite tough but i think i got at least a B in it in the exam
