    I worked so hard for my AS exams and I though I'd get ABBB + and I wanted to apply for the top universities,butunfortunately I got BCDD with the d in maths and business,a c in chem and a b in biology I'm dropping business so basically I'm worried about my predicted grades,because I'm carrying BCD on next year i'm worried because I might have the same predicted grades.However ito. Pharmacy I've worked in an independent pharmacy and at sainsbury's and a hospital pharmacy as work experience. I also have a paid job in being a counter assistant at different community pharmacy and I'm getting a recognised qualfication for that too.The thing is I can't afford to not do Pharmacy as I've wasted time on experience.I really wanted to go to Kings and I've worked my arse off for these exams and i'm stunned still about my results.I don't know where to apply too to have the best chance of getting offers,because I fear my predicted grades may be low so i'm struggling.I'm also retaking 4 modules in the three subjects I'm taking next year.Can the work be done to turn a BCD into a BBB or higher and how did you take the challenge?Also need some advice on revision because I've done everything possible and It's not worked so :/

    I Achieved CCDD in my first year and decided to carry on the CCD. I also wanted to do pharmacy. Indeed, I was devastated with the results but still applied to pharmacy for Sept 13 entry. In the end I achieved BBB and got into my first choice, LJMU! I know alot of good universitys like aston who require AAB dropped their grades as so many people failed to achieve the minimum they needed. Don't worry about it! With a good timetable, focused on each subject and keeping your head down in A2, you'll be fine! BCD aren't bad grades to carry to A2! Just make sure you get predicted atleast BBB/ABB. My D was in chemistry last year so anything is possible!

    Just to add, in clearing many universitys were willing to take students with a C in chemistry into their pharmacy school! Even grades as low as CCC! So don't worry about it!
    that's so good,well done,but which 5 universities did you apply to and what was your firm and insurance.I don't know where to apply to because i expected better so i'm confused.But you see I've got the experience required and realistically i think i'll get predicted BCD or maybe ACD or ABD so i don't know how to convince my teachers to predict me higher :/ but thanks for this
